Left home at age 17 so that he could live the lifestyle he desired.  For many years, that life included booze, coke, quaaludes and heroin.  Snorted coke with John Belushi.  It was the "Pesetas pura Chiva" that landed him in jail in Abilene, TX on September 9, 1999.  He was released in June-2000.  Preston had a storied music career playing with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Room Full of Blues, The Blues Brothers, The Alley Cats, Nick Curran, Damien Llane, Big Joe Turner, Bonnie Raitt, Vaughn Brothers, Duke Robillard, Lou Ann Barton, Albert Collins, Etta James, Professor Longhair, Albert King, and many others.  In his later years, I met him several times performing in St Louis, MO and he appeared to be OK, and his musical ability was very good and I believe he was clean and sober.  However the many years of drug abuse took its toll and Preston fell ill in April-2014 and was taken to a St Louis emergency room near death, receiving blood transfusions and lifesaving care.  He recovered and returned home.  Alas, "Guero Loco" lived only two more years.
