Yet another brilliant keyboardist who got his start early in life, Billy Preston is one of only two additional musicians ever to receive full credit on a Beatles record. The late-in-the-game single Get Back is credited to “The Beatles with Billy Preston”.
He also worked with The Rolling Stones, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Sam Cooke, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, The Jackson 5, Johnny Cash, Sly Stone, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and many, many more before his death in 2006.
Preston rocked the Fender Rhodes like no one else and gave the Hammond a good kick in the backside, too.
