[ Good Old Billy Preston.
Probably one of George's closest collaborators and musical friend, his career stalled when he was put in prison for....what, rape !!??
And recently he was in hospital battling some serious illness.
Any recent scoop on him ? I find it REALLY SAD that Billy's life went in turmoil and took all those wrong turns. Such a great musician ....[:(] but most probably he himself is to blame. Just sad.
He also was busted for drugs (cocaine, crack?) not too long ago. Very truly sad indeed.
