  1. Some music is like a full rainbow…. I must admit I have never really listened to Billy Preston

      Did you like the song? Billy Preston played with The Beatles quite a bit. Sometimes he’s referred to as The Fifth Beatle.

    Now that’s a musician I haven’t heard from in ages, Lisa. I remember Bill Preston playing with The Beatles, and one or two singles my dad had, but this one is new to me. I love the movement of the colours in your rainbow haiku.
