William Everett “Billy” Preston was born in Houston, Texas, on this day in 1946 and died in 2006.    

He met The Beatles in Germany before the band was famous.   Preston reconnected with them and played keyboards on “Get back” and the B-side of “Don’t let me down”.    Later, he had a string of solo hits and also played with The Rolling Stones.    

Preston was a fabulous organist.    One of my favorite songs was “Outaspace”:
