Greatest Keyboard Player Of All-Time
The Contenders: Page 5
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.
Mark Kelly is the keyboardist of Marillion and DeeExpus. If he doens't much famous like Jordan Rudess, he's the most melodic keyboardist in the world. His solos are so deep, emotional and cacthy that nobody can do better!
'Read Wikipedia, as he's known as the world's fastest keyboard player"
He has created a new classical genre
Yes he does deserve to be one of the best ten but people don't even know him.
That's the problem.
Or know him and too stupid to realize.
Before people vote, they should be required to listen to some of his music and then vote.
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. - xaxismusic
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
Yeah, I know... Most of you are going "who? " laugh out loud @ some of the people on this list, thanks for the laughs
Without a doubt, he was a major influence to most everyone on this list. In his time, for the style of music he mastered, there is no better piano player.
I would be surprised if anybody else on this list could play as Oscar did. Art Tatum is the only other one I can think in that class.
Putting "Pete" on this list, and then at 75, is an absolute insult. Pure virtuosic genius.V 3 Comments
He is from Bangladesh. Played piano with Air Supply and many other renown bands of the world.
None comes even close when it comes to natural playing...
Magical romel Ali
Jan belongs in the top three, along with Chick and Keith -- what's wrong with you people?!
The deepest solos ever played on a minimoog in the 70's The master of the minimoog and a fantastic Rhodes Comping and voicings. by the way Don't forget Herbie in the top 4
He is just amazing. Created many riffs for Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, Toto, George Benson, and many others. He has a creativity to develop sounds. His techinique comes from clássica piano. Great feeling, swing time. He is complete!
One of the best Keyboarder I have seen, studied music and plays the most complicated music parts perfectly live, often on 2 keyboards at the same time.
Saga's keyboardist extraordinaire is one of the most talented of all them on this list. He definitely should be in the top 10!
The greatest exponent of the keyboard in musical history.
Why is Gary no 78, he should be in the top 10.
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.
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!V 3 Comments
Listen to anything on the album underworld and you will understand. - deadgrass27V 1 Comment
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
Page, if anyone doesn't know, plays all the keys for Phish. He can play just about everything and is absolutely amazing. Just listen to any Phish song - Dukebags
Page side.. Rage side.
