Not Trying To Be No Hero
David Bradley | Sterling, VA USA | 11/19/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Billy Preston didn't release a big mountain of music, but he hung out with the big boys of Rock during the late '60's and '70's, became the only man credited with playing on a Beatle's LP (even Clapton's great solo on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" went unacknowledged) and released a series of jumping singles that sound as fresh today as they did 30 years ago.What surprised me after all these years was how many of these tunes I knew but had never realized were written/played by Preston. The instrumental "Outa-Space" sounds like it was pulled off an old Average White Band record (or the soundtrack to the old animated Cosby show "Fat Albert"). And who knew that Billy Preston wrote "You Are So Beautiful"?The two big hits, "Will It Go Round In Circles" and "Nothing From Nothing" are first class Pop, but Preston's true shining moment was "That's The Way God Planned It." A truly great song."
The World Has Lost Another Legend

"With the passing of Billy Preston last night June 6,2006 after a long illness.Rock and Roll has lost another link to it's past.Billy Preston played with some of the greatest Rock bands in history like The Rolling Stones and The Beatles.He became a vital part of the music scene in the 60's and 70's.Often referred to as "The Fifth Beatle",Billy played in many of their songs.He was well respected and loved by many artists.In 1971,former Beatle George Harrison assembled Preston and some of the greatest musicians of the day,to make the landmark concert/film "THE CONCERT FOR BANGLADESH".Billy continued on for many years playing,collaberating music with several artists.His last effort was a album/DVD he did with Eric Clapton,that paid tribute to the late blues legend Robert Johnson.Billy Preston made his mark in the music scene,stood the test of time,from frontman to icon.Billy Preston will be greatly missed by many who knew him to be a beautiful soul,who spoke to the world through his music."
Rest In Peace, Billy!

"We miss you, Man! And I'll bet The Lord has a huge grin on His face, listening to you play organ with the assembled Saints In Glory. Back here on earth, though, THIS "Greatest Hits" repackaging DOES do you right, Billy..."
