I knew this day had to be shitty in some way. Billy Preston died earlier today, after having been in a coma since November due to complications from kidney failure.
Billy was known as the Fifth Beatle, for having played on The Beatles (White Album), Abbey Road, and Let It Be, but his own solo work was a testament to his amazing songwriting skills and prowess as a performer. Take a minute and celebrate a wonderful artist’s life. Clicking the image will take you to his perfomance of ’That’s the Way (God Planned It)‘ from the Concert for Bangladesh, or you can jump to the extended and watch him putting down that kickass piano line for ‘Get Back’ on the roof with the Fab Four.
