I like how Jimmy wore his Tie-dye Peace Symbol shirt in to AFN Radio when we did the live broadcast on the powerful military station world-wide in March of 1994 – you will be / are greatly missed James Preston! Funky drummer, the hits are still going on – still reeling from the sad news he has passed a couple of days ago folks – Jon Hammond *Actual Broadcast on AFN from Frankfurt Headquarters:

“This remarkable film documents 3/17 1994 AFN POWERLITE Show live broadcast of JON HAMMOND Band playing and talking on-air with host MARGIE GLAD “The Voice of AFN Europe” 871AM MW at that time. First-ever public performance of original composition “Nu Funk” (“Hip Hop Chitlins”). The broadcast was heard world-wide and recorded and later released on Jon Hammond’s album “Late Rent”. James Preston of band Sons of Champlin drums, Barry Finnerty gtr., Jon Hammond XB-2 organ/bass Joe Berger audio.”… — with James Preston in Frankfurt, Germany

Grieving the death of James Preston today – I started playing music with James when I was 15 years old in 1968. I did some of my most important hits
in my life with Jim over the years, including a live world-wide broadcast on AFN the military power radio network from
Frankfurt headquarters – The Fillmore, opening up for The Sons on June 4th of 1999
Shoreline Amphitheatre
San Francisco City Hall

Jimmy had a natural feel and high level of god-given talent, one of the funkiest drummers ever came out of the Bay Area and fierce in his
convictions, I will greatly miss him! – sincerely, Jon Hammond
Rest in Peace Jimmy!! Sending my deepest and sincerest condolences to the Preston Family and all the Sons of Champlin musicians – friends and musicians who’ve played with Jim over the years. – JH / Jon Hammond Band / Jon Hammond Organ Group — with James Preston and Jon Hammond at San Francisco City Hall.
