Billy Preston Dies at 59
And Billy Preston, the prolific keyboardist known as the “Fifth Beatle”, died Tuesday at the age of 59. Preston played on several number one hits for the Beatles and Rolling Stones, and had three number one pop singles of his own. He played at what turned out to be the Beatles’ last concert, the famous rooftop performance in 1969.
