Billy Preston: Bet You Never Knew This…

billy preston Billy Preston: Bet You Never Knew This...

The 5th Beatle!

A rather juicy tidbit kinda slipped through the cracks in KEITH RICHARDS’ autobiography, “Life.”

BILLY PRESTON was gay.

The late keyboard player and singer was a touring member of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]THE ROLLING STONES[/lastfm] from 1973 to 1977, and on page 359 Keith writes, “And he was gay at a time when nobody could be openly gay, which added difficulties to his life.” Keith goes on to reveal that one time he had to stop Billy from beating up his boyfriend in an elevator.

Billy died in 2006, but his music lives on!  ~JZ
