By Scott Goldfine

With mentor Little Richard looking on ― veteran R&B/rock/gospel keyboard extraordinaire Billy Preston treated a near-capacity Roxy (Hollywood, Calif.) crowd to an exuberantly spontaneous show. Preston thrilled with favorites such as “Will It Go Round in Circles,” “Nothing From Nothing” and “Space Race,” as well as covers of Beatles, Rolling Stones and Ray Charles tunes.

Preston is still alive and well! (Editor’s note: Preston died in 2006 at age 59).
