First Vince, now Billy. Not a good week for keyboard players. I didn't realize Billy had been in a coma for the last 7 months. Another of the greats is gone. Peace.

I heard about this on the evening news. For those of you who have a copy of the Concert For George, now would be a good time to put on My Sweet Lord.

Dave thanks, "Thats the Way" video was awsome. I'm going to have our team learn that for our church. I still have goose bumps!

I heard about this late last night on the radio. Very sad. What was worse was that BBC radio 2 were struggling to find a Billy Preston recording to play as a tribute!
