I Read the News Today, Oh Boy...

It is with utter sadness that I read today of the death of Billy Preston.

May God bless you on this journey and may you rest in peace, dear Billy.

Mr. Preston was an integral part of one of the pivotal moments of my life, when he was a member of the 1974 George Harrison tour and I attended my very first concert on 13 December for that historical occasion. I will never forget the funky, raw rhythms of his organ playing, his infectious gap-toothed grin and his overall jovial, good-natured, fun-loving playfulness. I just love you Billy.
