October 19, 1974 Billy Preston’s Nothing from Nothing hit #1!
I took Dylan to an Eric Clapton concert 6 or 7 years ago and Billy Preston was playing organ and piano. Dylan said, “Dad, thats sounds like you.” Well, I did listen to Billy Preston and actually his other song Will it Go Round in Circles has a definitive piano lick that I learned the second it came out.
It was a beautiful inside day today with the rain coming down here in the Poconos. I kept the fireplace stoked all day long from the minute I got up. I practiced all sorts of music today from Chopin to Springsteen and scales and arpeggio’s and Debussy and blues.
Now it’s time to watch some TV. I guess I won’t be talking Yankees anymore!
Nothing From Nothing is exactly what the Yankees did against Detroit.
