Sebe: I must tell you, that I have a rock n roll virus. I apprciate the keyboard playing you have exposed me too. But....Rock n Roll floats my boat.
Thanks, JimmyMack for a very fine blog that brings back my memories of the Hammond organ brought to you by the late great Billy Preston taking you to Outa Space in 1972 :D
Here’s Billy Preston’s rendition of “Summertime” on the B3.
and here’s my main man Prince who can play 26 instruments and record Album/CD/Music without a band doing “Peach” check out the guitar riffs in this piece ; Amazing! :D
Here’s the lyric’s to "Peach":
Well Sebe, thanks for waking me up to Smith. He is fantastic. What a talent! Same for Billy Preston Funk. I remember Billy playing with the Rolling Stones live and in studio work. He was so outstanding in one particualr gig the Stones had that his playing was 'out-shining' the Stones. Where upon Keith Richards, during a break had to take Billy aside and 'show him the blade' so to speak by telling Billy that this was not Billy Preston and the Rolling Stones and to 'turn that thing down.' Billy got the message and started to just 'blend' in with the Stones and everything was cool after that. I remember Billy on Soul Train with Don Cornelius...I gotta song ain't got no melody....He was fantastic.
I also love Little Richard and them fingers of his hitting those keys. Dam good music fellas. Dam good.
