Official site for Billy Preston : Billy was called the Fifth Beatle because he played keyboards on Let it Be, The White Album and Abbey Road. He also played on the Rolling Stones’s hit song Miss You, and often played with Eric Clapton.

@facebook : By age ten Billy Preston was playing keyboards with gospel diva Mahalia Jackson, and two years later, in 1958, he was featured in Hollywood’s film bio of W.C. Handy, St. Louis Blues, as young Handy himself. Preston was a prodigy on organ and piano, recording during the early ’60s for Vee-Jay and touring with Little Richard.

@last.fm : Preston first came to widespread attention of a U.S. mainstream audience as the organist (and sometimes vocalist) in the house band on the television show “Shindig,” popular during 1964-66. On tour backing Little Richard & Sam Cooke he met the Beatles (early in their career) in Hamburg, Germany (1962).
