ROCK Sex: "You Are So Beautiful" - Billy Preston > Dennis Wilson > Joe Cocker



ROCK Sex says you are so bountiful.

Billy Preston is known as 'the fifth Beatle' and 'the sixth Stone', but who knew he was an adjunct Beach Boy?

In 1974, Billy jammed with Beach Boy Dennis Wilson at a party, and their ad-lib became the song, "You Are So Beautiful".

Later that year, JOE COCKER transformed it into his signature song.

For the next eight years, until his untimely death, Dennis Wilson closed out Beach Boys concerts with the ballad.
