I saw him with Clapton on Eric's 2001 tour. No one could beat a B-3 like that man could. God Bless :peace

I am absolutely gutted to hear about Billy Prestons death. He was such a great performer, live and on record. Every time I hear the the first organ solo kick in on "I want you (she's so heavy)" on Abbey Road, I get shivers down my spine. I saw him on Claptons tour a few years back too, and he blew me away. A real tragic loss, he will be missed. RIP
