r.i.p. Billy Powell

Last month Lynyrd Skynyrd keyboardist Billy Powell passed away at age 56 due to -supposedly- a hart attack.


On stage mr.Powell played on a white grand piano AND a white Hammond B3 organ. The two instruments would stand on a motorized round turning plateau, so whatever instrument he was playing, the plateau would turn him facing the audience. For that single reason alone he was my hero.
