Rocker Billy Preston is fighting for his life after the failure of a kidney transplant.
The NOTHING FROM NOTHING singer has been told he's dying as he fights life without a kidney on a dialysis machine, but he refuses to have another transplant.
The rock legend, 57, was told he needed a kidney transplant a year ago (02) and he was so upset with the news of his failing health he reportedly went into hiding at a friend's home in Los Angeles, so he wouldn't have to talk about his problems.
A friend says, "Billy is failing quickly. He's very thin and has trouble keeping food down. He refuses to discuss his prognosis, but it's clear he's growing weaker by the day."12/12/2003 09:07
