A2 THE HAYS DAILY NEWS this & that WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7,2006 tt»N0m Musician Preston dies PHOENIX (AP) — Billy Preston, the exuberant key- boardist who landed dream gigs with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and enjoyed his own hit singles Including "Outta Space" and "Nothing From Nothing," died Tuesday at 59. His longtime Preston Lewis manager, Joyce Moore, said a heart infection in November left him in a coma, and he never regained consciousness; he was taken to a Scottsdale hospital Saturday after his condition deteriorated. Preston had battled chronic kidney failure and received a kidney transplant in 2002. But the kidney failed and he was on dialysis ever since. Known for his big gap-toothed smile and towering Afro, Preston was a teen prodigy on the piano and organ, and lent his gospel- tinged touch to classics such as the Beatles' "Get Back" and the Stones' "Can't You Hear Me Knocking?" 'Professor' Broadway-bound LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jerry Lewis, who played "The Nutty Professor" in 1963, has a wacky new scheme: staging the film as a Broadway musical. The first show is planned for January at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, where the 80-year-old comedian has a houseboat, he said. Lewis will direct the show, which he aims to have on Broadway by October 2008. The show will be produced by The Michael Andrew Company Andrew, a 41-year-old crooner and comedian who, fronts The, .;•..• Atomic iBig Bandf lis set: to iplay the lead, the bucktoothed Julius Kelp', 1 tyjid latent? ^oiltiA'fltfif, : ;.' transforms Kim'into the suave " Buddy Love.
