Billy Preston played clavinet on this song, and sadly it was the last song he played on before dying of kidney failure in 2006. Preston was an innovative keyboard player who performed with The Rolling Stones, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Sam Cooke and many others in addition to his solo work. He was best known for his work with The Beatles, and became the only non-Beatle to receive a credit on one of their songs when he contributed to "Get Back
." His appearance on this song is appropriate, as Preston represents the music the Chili Peppers are embracing. They make reference to Preston and The Beatles with the line, "A little Beatlemania when I can."
