Billy Preston, an underrated keyboard player passed away. He was considered by many to be the "5th" Beatle. He also played for the Stones, Mahalia Jackson, and wrote some hits for himself as well as others. I met him about 15 years ago and was very pleasant.

He also put on one heck of a good concert, with his own band. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

R.I.P. Billy.
