Not What I Expected

"I remember Billy Preston as just a kid playing organ on Shindig or some such 60's TV music program. Just happy type music. Then, years later, I saw him backing Ray Charles, with The Man pausing and saying, "Take it, Mr. Preston," and, boy, did he, instrumentally. That's what I wanted, but what I got is the Happy Music, which is fine and delightful, but not what I was hoping for. So, if you like his happy upbeat singing and playing style, you'll probably like this--and that's not a put-down. But I wanted to hear his genius as an organist. So, my search continues."
Where Is "God Loves YOU"?

"Billy Preston is certainly missed. In addition to his work with the Beatles and others, if you look at the video for the Rolling Stones' "Hot Stuff", you will see him all over that too. R.I.P."
