Gee I thought there were only four!
I’ve seen something like this before in a National Geographic.
note: right side four beetles down … that one has a face! … that is upside down … and possibly was a nemesis for Tarzan!
dan– There were six if you count Pete Best and (later) Billy Preston.
plane– Kinda bummed that the image didn’t come out nice and sharp in this post. Click on the image and enlarge it for better awesomeness.
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
dan– “Outa Space” was a classic. Billy Preston also sported one of the greatest bouncing ‘fros of all time.
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 ; ))
dan– Rhino Records has a series of compilations called “Rock Instrumental Rock Classics.” I have volumes 1 thru 5. They’re all good, but the Soul Classics CD is my favorite. Get ’em!
It is on mah list!!
Soul classics …i LOVED ‘Getaway’ by E,W&Fire And of course, shining star Then there was …. It’s on my list Bunk, Thanx!
