Keyboard legend Billy Preston dies
The music world is in mourning after the death of keyboard legend Billy Preston.
Rolling Stone frontman Mick Jagger described the 59-year-old, who died in Phoenix, Arizona, as a "fantastic and gifted musician".

Preston, who had been in a coma since November after battling with chronic kidney failure, worked with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones as well as having his own series of hit singles.
A former teen prodigy on the piano and organ, Preston lent his gospel touch to classics such as the Beatles' "Get back" and the Stones' "Can't you hear me knocking?"

He had success as a solo artist in the 1970s, winning a Grammy in 1973 for "Outta space," and scoring other hits with "Will it go round in circles", "nothing from nothing" and "With you I'm born again".

He also penned Joe Cocker's "You are so beautiful," among other hits.

Mick Jagger said: "Billy was a fantastic and gifted musician.... a superb singer in both recording sessions and on-stage.

"He was great fun to be with on-stage when touring with us and I will miss him a lot."

Broken Bones
Today many football fans in England will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of the scan on Rooney's foot. The last time one tiny bone caused so much fuss and bother it was stuck in the back of the Queen Mother's throat!

Have a fun day
