Yup, a cool player. Sadly gone now.

He later became keyboard player of choice for the Beatles, but I learned to dance with his early stuff, so always a soft spot with me.


He was just 18 when he recorded Billy's Bag.

To quote Rick Wakeman: "Every keyboard player I know loves Billy Preston. You can spot his playing a mile off, whether it's the Hammond organ, the Fender Rhodes or the piano. He had such a spiritual touch to his technique, it made him completely unique."

Love that Janis Ian track- the whole album is rather lovely.

That's a gorgeous version of Janis' Seventeen, 00.  Quietly shushes the hyperbolic angst of Eric Carmen's All By Myself and all the subsequent cover versions.

Ahem, speaking of cover versions, in honour of Myles Goodwyn finally recovering his stolen Gibson Melody Maker after its 40-year walkabout, here's April Wine's cover of an Elton John song:

Could work as a nod to Chinese space probes as well.

Nice tale about the Gibson Melody Maker.


I wish I could get back some of the guitars I've owned over the years.


I had a Gibson SG Junior that a former owner claimed had been owned by Bob Dylan. I didn't believe the story. Sold it for 200 quid in the late 80's. Thought I'd done well.....


Subsequently found out that the story was true! AAAAAARGH!!

Coulda, woulda, shoulda, denimsince65.  Tis better to have loved and lost... 

Still, it would be kind of neat to find out where that guitar ended up.  It makes me think of the Canadian movie classic, the Red Violin.
