    Billy was awesome. Saw him with the Stones a few times and someone else I can't recall.

    EDIT: This one is actually live... the other was the studio recording with a Soultrain lipsync.

    that was simply awesome. Nat Cole could really share a spotlight!

    also, billy preston looked just like a little kid version of his grown self!

    That's a great version. Couple other people you'll recognize there.

    The other guitarist in the band I played in is Larry Graham’s cousin. They hang out when Larry is down here. I seen them for the concert for that Star Is Born movie they made in the 70’s. He always had a great band and put on a great show.

    We’ll have to mention his use of the Roland Jet Phaser on his bass solos! He still uses them to this day… I keep one stashed on my collection for The Who’s That Lady Ernie Isley sound… same pedal.., used on guitar and bass … go figure??
