he's playin' organ in heaven now

such sad news. billy preston died at age 59. he played with two of my favorite all time musicians: the beatles and aretha franklin. you owe it to yourself to listen to his performance on the aretha franklin "live at the fillmore west" album. you will soon hear yourself echoing aretha's words, "play it, billy."

r.i.p. billy preston. get on back.

Billy wrote "You are so beautiful" for Joe Cocker. Folks, you've just witnessed the birth of a rumor. What else could we start?
