He was quite a talent, and he'll be sorely missed.

He always seemed to being having such a good time when performing.

Here's a link to the vintage Billy Preston and George Harrison photo I referred to in Cliff's postgame thread.

The version I saw this morning had been cropped. Turns out Gerald Ford also posed with the dudes. Classic early 70's. Plug in the lava lamp and check this out:

I have fond memories as a young child of listening to Billy Preston being played on the record player as the adults danced and sang along at summer barbecues. What a talent. His music was a gift.

RIP, Billy.
