Billboard: #1 After He Became The only American Artist To Share Label Billing With The Beatles (on "Get Back" in May 1969), Billy Preston was Signed To Apple Records, Where He Recorded Two Albums. Up until That Time He Had Been a Keyboard Player And a Studio Musician; ---------------- The Great Billy was Born September 9, 1946, in Houston, Texas. He was Raised in Los Angeles, Where By The Age of Three He Was Playing Piano. His Mother Was The Organist For The Victory Baptist Church and Billy Was Asked To Direct The Church Choir. He Cast 10-year-Old Billy As The Young W.C. Handy, The Man Known As The "Father of Blues." It Was Preston's only Film Role Until He Appeared in The Motion Picture Let It Be With The Beatles. Billy Was signed to Sar Records, the label owned by Sam Cooke and in 1962 Billy joined a gospel tour starring Cooke and Little Richard.

In 1965, Billy was playing clubs in Los Angeles when he was visited by Sounds Incorporated, the British band who backed Little Richard on the '62 tour. They brought television producer Jack Good to the club and he invited Billy to become the resident keyboard player on his Shindig series.

During a rehearsal for the show, Billy sat in for his idol, Ray Charles. When Charles heard Billy sing "Georgia on My Mind," he invited him to record on his next album. In 1967, Charles toured Europe and introduced Billy as the man he'd like to carry on the work he had started. It was a concert at the Royal Festival Hall that attracted George Harrison to Preston and led to his joining the Beatles on "Get Back."

After the Beatles broke up, Billy performed on Harrison's All Things Must Pass album, and was invited by George to perform a song at his Concert for Bangladesh benefit at New York's Madison Square Garden in 1971. In addition to the Grammy-winning "Outa-Space" and "Will It Go Round In Circles," Billy's gold singles in the Seventies included "Space Race" (#1) in 1973 and "Nothing from Nothing" in (#1) in 1974. In 1975, he wrote what would become Joe Cocker's biggest solo hit, "You Are So Beautiful" and recorded and toured with the Rolling Stones.
The Great Billy Preston had battled kidney disease in his later years, brought on by his hypertension. He received a kidney transplant in 2002, but his health continued to deteriorate. He died on June 6, 2006 in Scottsdale, Arizona, of complications of malignant hypertension that resulted in kidney failure and other complications.
