MIKE SHINODA... What can I say about U... I mean mike is I think the only pianist who can rap n play piano... He is in top 10 list of rappers n pianists so basically mike is amazing... N I can't even believe it that he is on 34th position because he deserves to be on top of the screen because he juz so awesome... JUST SO PHENOMENON... LOVE you MIKE... N LINKIN PARK!
He's quite underrated because of stunning vocals of chester, great sounds produced by the band...
Love Mike! Linkin Park is one of the few bands that keep rock alive nowdays!
Trampled Underfoot! Kashmir! Rock and Roll! come on people led zeppelin -V3 Comments
His piano and keyboard skills are off the chart, Pounds away with passion, his solo work is great too he proves he is a great lyricist and singer as well. Songs like Sequestered in Memphis are where he really gets into his zone
Has to be on there. He pounds away at the keyboard and piano like Ben Folds and Jerry Lee Lewis. Listen to any hold steady song for evidence of this.
He pounds away like Ben Folds and Jimmy Lee Lewis and he does it perfectly probably the only pianist who could work in The Hold SteadyV2 Comments
Definitely should be in the top ten he is awesome
Love his live rendition of "Another Mans Women".V3 Comments
Completely underrated as a keyboardist. Aside from just great technical skill, he also knew exactly how to get his keyboards to perfectly fit the mood of any song.
Are you kidding me...? He is at place no 39? He is one of the greatest pop piano player in the world. Listen to Intermezzo no1 and you see what I mean...
Now here is one cat that can rock man he has got the vote from kiwiland::V1 Comment
He rocks I love it when he plays.
Not sure if anyone realizes it but he was the driving force behind Styx. Check out the piano work on the best of times.V1 Comment
Watch Jonathan on the Revelation dvd & you will soon see he's not only great at playing the familiar Journey hits like "Open arms", "Faithfully", & "Whose crying now" but he shows he is also a master of classical piano. Amazing to watch! A great talented pianist of many styles!
Great singer/songwriter/pianist that was the 1970s version of Cole Porter.
Just listen to his song 'Harbour'. Or 'Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)'. Or the syncopated rhythm in 'I Go To Rio'.
Listen to 70's Dead and you will know why he should be on this list before many of the people listed above him.
