Vanilla Fudge... Best Hammond B3 out there.

69 Eric Heath

Eric Heath of the band Columbia Fields... He definitely deserves to be on this list. Although the band may not be that well known, his playing is amazing!

Great player. His piano helps define their music

70 Jason D Williams

Better than any of them

71 Gregg Allman

He was the most important member of the allman brothers who wasn't a guitarist. It wouldn't be called the allman brothers without him.

Only 85! What?

So underrated and never got the credit he deserved.

His solo work on New Orleans classics is wonderful

New Orleans sound. One of the best, in my opinion.

76 Christine McVie
77 Dan Fogelberg

This classically trained pianist is better remembered for his hits featuring a guitar. He shows chops on songs like To The Morning, Sketches, Beggar's Game, Seeing you Again, Same Old Lange Syne, Ghosts, Heart's Hotel and also in more classical pieces like Paris Nocturne or The First Christmas Morning. He Better fits the title "pianist" than some who made the list.
