>R.I.P. Billy Preston.

>This is sad news. I just heard it on the radio as I was returning from the gym. Even sadder was the fact that he had been in a coma since November, but I don’t recall seeing anything about that anywhere. I was such a fan of Billy Preston when I was growing up. His music played a major role in my childhood in the seventies, as much as Stevie and the Jackson Five. It was always a treat to see him perform on Soul Train with his fabulous afro, funky clothes, and cosmic sound. His talent was colossal. They don’t make music like his anymore.

Here’s a trip down memory lane, in honor such a great man. These are my two favorite songs by Billy Preston. There are many, but these have always topped the list. Enjoy!!
