When I heard this today I had to listen to Billy performing "My Sweet Lord" at the Concert for George. It never fails to give me the chills it's that good. In my mind's eye I can see that giant smile right now.

Billy was indeed one of those known as "The Fifth Beatle" and he loved that title.

Nothin' from nothin' may mean nothin', but Billy was always somethin'. That's going to be one amazing jam session up there. Rock on and rest in peace dear Billy.

A nice bio of Billy, and a great shot of him from "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (the film): http://www.entpresents.com/artists.php?id=60

I'm devastated. Billy was one of the greatest.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

SHIT, I never got to play with him. Aside from the David Letterman band, this was the guy I wanted to play with the most in the world. Fuck.

Not many people know this, but Joe Cocker's hit song 'You're So Beautiful' was written by Billy Preston.

Yesterday on Howard Stern they played some of Billy Preston's most famous songs. He was a brilliant songwriter and performer.

Howard mentioned that since he recently he settled his lawsuit with CBS, now he'll be able to play his CBS material on Sirius. He promised that one of the first things he'll play will be the interviews with Billy Preston.

I didn't realise that he'd been in a coma since November of last year.

Terrible news.

Billy Preston helped ease the tensions between The Beatles as they were heading closer to a break-up.

Sadly that didn't stop Yoko from breaking them up.
