No better rock/pop pianist!
IMO, the greatest keyboard player of them all.
He's not just a keyboardist, he's a drummer and the best atmospheric producer ever! listen to Depeche Mode's SOFAD album and you'll understand
Watch the live performances with Depeche Mode. You can't even see his fingers cause they're moving so fast.
The True Depeche Mode keyboardist.
Whoa, this guy, as well as his primary band Stratovarius, has performed in Yngwie Malmsteen and Kamelot - he has his own very unique fast style of keyboard shredding. It's technical, and very impressive to listen to his soloing
Ronald Jenkees is very unknown and VERY underrated. He is undoubtedly one of the best of his time. He has his own flow, his own style that is incredible and unique. You can FEEL his music. It touches the soul.
OBVIOUSLY THE BEST KEYBOARD PLAYER. MAN! HE HAS SPEED, TECHNO, TIMING, MELODY AND EVERYTHING ONE NEEDS TO BE THE BEST.
NO OTHER KEYBOARD PLAYER CAN EVER BEAT VADIM.
HE IS SIMPLY THE BEST.
he is epic! maybe not as good as the guy from children of bodom though.
He has super fast fingers!
Probably the most underrated keyboard player anywhere. The reason? He doesn't overplay. Just plays what is needed for the song and nothing more.
Listen to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and tell me this guy isn't top 5
Lyle Mays doesn't make even the top 10? Lyle is the true number ONE! The masses as usual do not have a clue. Such an absolute genius & supernaturally gifted keyboard player who has been willingly/happily subject to an even greater gift(Pat Metheny of course) all these years speaks volumes for his love, passion & respect for TRUE music. MVW
the founder and only lasting member of Nine Inch Nails, and How To Destroy Angels. He deserves a spot on here for his inspiration to other musicians in the dark, industrial, electro, community and bands.
Billy Preston (the only musician to work with both the Rolling Stones "Sticky Fingers" & the Beatles "Let it be") has more soul than any other keyboard player I've heard. Take a listen of "that's the way god planned it" from George Harrison's Bangladesh Concert, Just beautiful.
He has played with the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton
Great keyboard player and band leader. If only you can spell his name correctly. Billy Payne
Bill Paine of Little Feat has to be one of the top five rock piano players of all time. Incredible virtuosity.
An innovative player with Procul Harem who rarely wrote lyrics but created music around them. A super talent who etched lasting memories of his keyboard prowess
People if there's anyone that has featured with the world's best Guitar player, George Benson is it this man, very experienced from classical to JAZZ, which is his favourite actually.
