Born Under a Brilliant Star

I missed this at first, but the Ladybug was right there: the Fifth Beatle has joined the first two.

Billy Preston was prolific, a gifted songwriter and keyboardist; besides his own work and his well-known organ sessions with the Beatles, he wrote for or performed with Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Sly and the Family Stone, and the Rolling Stones. His soundtrack work was extensive, and continued up to the present day:

Thanks for the music, sir. Rest in peace.

PS - the official L/R page doesn't work anymore; the Japanese-language version does, for those who have a working knowledge...
