Greatest Keyboard Player Of All-Time

The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Kate Bush

What a shame she's below Tori Amos, who probably wouldn't even be on this list I'd not for Kate Bush.

Her beautifully rhythmic playing of keyboards also showed with other instruments as well as her programing prowess. Not to mention a 4 1/2 octive vocal range!

83Richard Clayderman

I can't believe it... ! There are great piano players in here, it's my opinion Richard Clayderman is at the top of all them, my respect for the classics of course.

Are you kidding me? Laugh out loud

My my.. the most successful pianist on guiness record don't have the justice here

84Bill Paine

Bill Paine of Little Feat has to be one of the top five rock piano players of all time. Incredible virtuosity.

Great keyboard player and band leader. If only you can spell his name correctly. Billy Payne

85Roy Bittan

A pivotal cornerstone to so many of Bruce Springsteen's signature songs, as well as those of many other artists, "The Professor" possesses the talent to make you smile, to make you pump your fist, and to make you cry, all in the same song. On a stage as crowded as that of the E Street Band, Roy Bittan stands out.

86Romel Ali

He is from Bangladesh. Played piano with Air Supply and many other renown bands of the world.

91Ray CharlesRaymond Charles Robinson, professionally known as Ray Charles, was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and composer.

He should be higher. The fact he was blind and still played like a pro showed a lot. Also, his voice! It's lovely! - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Mixed differend styles in his soul. He influenced a lot of musicians like Joe Cocker (Unchain my heart, let's go get stoned), Beatles an so on...
Best is hear his music and enjoy...

94Oliver Palotai
95Prince Rogers Nelson

This is a man who would spend HOURS listening to the same 3 notes played over and over on a loop to become one with the music of the original artist. THEN he wrote his own original works given to him by God. This is an artist who died during his tour of "Piano and a Microphone". Who ELSE can do a solo tour with just a piano & a mic?

Astonishingly good keyboard player. And song writer. And guitarist. And singer. And drummer. And bass player. And dancer. And composer. I could do this all day.

Genius at everything he touched.

96Rick Davies (Supertramp)

This is insane.. Davies' subtleties set him apart from most, and his hooks are insane.

Listen to "Another Man's Woman" live and you will hear.

97Johann Sabastian Bach

Are you kidding me? Bach shouldn't be in this list. Geniuses should be in a list apart

99Seth Justman

Absolutely, one of the most accomplished players. He should be in the top ten.

Can't put a number on him or anyone for that matter but Seth justman was author of some pretty tasteful b3 solos and some funk blues infused piano.
