Yer right Bunk, I was trying to think of his name (Pete Best), Now Billy Preston, the man! He was good friends with George Harrison and wikipedia talks about his relationship with the beetles
I have an album of Billy Preston’s that has one of the coolest groove’s I’ve ever heard. The song is called ‘Outa-space’ Preston is a genius with the clavinet thru an overdrive, and through a Wah-Pedal, he play’s and makes that clavinet talk! On that song is George Harrison who plays lead guitar. 1972
LOVE IT! I haven’t heard it in many years, but it was like yesterday! And I totally agree the bouncing fro- greatest of all time!I would have loved to have met him. or even better yet jammed with him. I loved his music, and some of the gospel Of really liked too.!
I also listened to Outa-Space today… A song that I NEVER get tired of hearing. That clavinet was a like part of his soul. I never heard anyone play a clavinet like him… except maybe for maybe Bernie Worrell or Stevie Wonder (Superstition , People, keep on …..? and also chic Corea, Herbie Hancock, Edgar Winter) Yesssir ; ))
