Other contributing keyboardists: "soul musician Billy Preston, Phil
Spector and Neil Young associate Jack Nitzsche and Ian McLagan of The
Billy Preston (died last month at 59):
"After the Beatles, Preston played keyboards for the Rolling Stones,
alongside pianist Nicky Hopkins. Preston appears on the Stones' albums
Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main Street, Goats Head Soup, It's Only
Rock'n Roll and Black and Blue. He toured as a support act with the
Stones in 1973 and recorded his live album Live European Tour 1973 in
Munich with Mick Taylor on guitar."
Jack Nitzsche (died in 2000):
"While organizing the music for the T.A.M.I. Show television special
in 1964, he met The Rolling Stones, and went on to contribute the
keyboard textures to their mid-sixties hits such as 'Paint It Black',
and the choral arrangements for 'You Can't Always Get What You Want'."
More on Nitzsche from "Turning the Key of the Universe: Jack Nitzsche
Remembered," by Andrew Loog Oldham, manager of the Stones in the 60s:
"There are three keyboard players on those mid-?60s Stones RCA
sessions. If it?s a blues figure, it?s Ian Stewart playing piano (Ian
Stewart was the Ur-Stone who was not to become part of the group). On
a few occasions when it?s slightly strange it might be Brian, but the
rest?all the piano, organ, harpsichord playing?plus the denseness, the
body, the glue?is Jack Nitzsche."
