The 50th anniversary of the “Let It Be” sessions, a January 2019 series —
“I put a message out to find out if Billy [Preston] was in town, and told him to come into Savile Row, which he did. He came in while we were down in the basement, running through Get Back, and I went up to reception and said, ‘Come in and play on this because they’re all acting strange.’ He was all excited. I knew the others loved Billy anyway, and it was like a breath of fresh air.
[…] Billy came down and I said, ‘Remember Billy? Here he is - he can play the piano.’ He got on the electric piano, and straight away there was 100% improvement in the vibe in the room. Having this fifth person was just enough to cut the ice that we’d created among ourselves.” - #GeorgeHarrison
