Bonus Post! - Billy Preston

I stumbled upon a Facebook Group called "Let Billy Preston Fix It" and after reading their explanation, I checked out Billy Preston. And you should too.

Billy Preston was a pretty cool dude. He seemed to always have a smile on his face, his exuberance is contagious, and I don't think you can stay in a bad mood when you listen to a track of his or watch him dance. He spent a lot of time with the Beatles (George Harrison in particular) and is credited with being the one to restore peace while Let It Be was being recorded and the guys were ready to kill each other. Seems like a good track record to me.

Some early Billy Preston, followed by some later Billy Preston, below.
