“That was like a pipe dream for us,” says the band`s vocalist Jared Watson about the participation of Preston. “We couldn`t believe it when we found out he had heard our music and wanted to play on it. We flew out to Arizona, where we got to meet him and watch him record his tracks. It was surreal.”
Billy Preston died in June 2006. The Texan born keyboard player was the only person ever to receive a joint credit on a Beatles record. Get Back
was released as The Beatles with Billy Preston. Get Back
