The music world suffered another big loss yesterday:
Billy Preston, the gifted keyboardist who recorded
with both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and
scored two of his own Number One hits, died of kidney
failure in Scottsdale, Arizona, Tuesday at fifty-nine.
Preston, sometimes referred to as “the fifth Beatle,”
was the only performer to receive a recording credit
with the group, when the single “Get Back” was
attributed to the Beatles with Billy Preston. He
scored his own chart-toppers with “Will It Go Round in
Circles” (1973) and “Nothing From Nothing” (1974), and
he was co-wrote “You Are So Beautiful,” which became a
Top Five hit for Joe Cocker in 1975. By then,
Preston’s reputation was strong enough to earn him the distinction of becoming the first-ever musical guest on Saturday Night Live. He also played the role of Sgt. Pepper in the 1978 film version of the Beatles’ seminal concept album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and his career included sessions with such greats as Little Richard, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Sly and the Family Stone, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Born in Houston on September 9th, 1946, Preston moved
with his family to Los Angeles early on. A child
prodigy, he played with Mahalia Jackson by age ten and
appeared as the young W.C. Handy in the 1958 film St.
Louis Blues. Touring Europe with Little Richard’s band
in 1962, he first met the Beatles. After signing with
Sam Cooke’s SAR label, he moved onto Vee-Jay, where he
released two well-received instrumental gospel albums,
The Most Exciting Organ Ever and The Wildest Organ in
Working in the studio band on the ABC TV series
Shindig, Preston was recruited by Ray Charles. George
Harrison spotted him performing with Charles on a BBC
special and invited him to record with the Beatles. In
addition to “Get Back,” the keyboardist took part in
the sessions that would become the Let It Be album.
Harrison encouraged the signing of Preston to the
Beatles’ Apple label, where he released two albums,
That’s the Way God Planned It and Encouraging Words.
He also appeared on Harrison’s first solo album, All
Things Must Pass, and on the historic recording of the
Concert for Bangladesh. Preston’s connection to the
Beatles would continue for years; he worked on John
Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band album and, in 1989, joined
Ringo Starr’s first All Starr Band tour.
Preston was a collaborator in demand beyond the Fab
Four. He appeared on a string of Rolling Stones albums
— including Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main Street and
Black and Blue — touring for a time as the band’s
In his own solo career he enjoyed several years of
remarkable success in the mid-1970s, beginning with
the Grammy-winning hit “Outa-Space” in 1972 and ending
in 1980 with “With You I’m Born Again,” a Top Five
duet with Syreeta Wright, one-time wife of Stevie
Wonder. In later years, Preston made studio
appearances with singers including Luther Vandross,
Elton John, Gladys Knight and Enrique Iglesias.
The 1990s were difficult times, as the singer, who
admitted a decades-long dependency on drugs and
alcohol, was in recurring trouble with the law over
charges including an insurance fraud scam that
involved a fire at his house. Though he spent much of
the decade in prison or on probation, he continued to
perform whenever possible. Just before his death, he
appeared on albums by Neil Diamond (12 Songs) and the
Red Hot Chili Peppers (Stadium Arcadium). A virtuoso,
Preston was also extremely versatile, spanning gospel,
funk, classic rock and many other styles. Prefiguring
a 1973 album that he called Everybody Likes Some Kind
of Music, he described his ideal audience in a 1971
Rolling Stone interview: “Young whites, young blacks,
old people, jazz people — I want ’em all.”
