The Contenders: Page 4
Being so long into the music business, one of the first to use minimoog synth and still playing. listen to Mighty Quinn with the Earth bandV 1 Comment
If there is one thing that gets me mad, it's how under appreciated Billy Corgan is. Just listen to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, and Adore, and you'll see how great Corgan really is.
This guy is awesome. Should be ranked higher
Doug and his organ were the mind, heart and soul of Iron Butterfly
Crazy-talented keyboardist for the Cars!
One of the most innovative and influential musicians in Rock since the 70s. He invented a way to use the synthesizer in rock music, and has been involved in creating the sound of so may experimenting bands through the 70s and 80s and so on.
Including Roxy Music (start of his career as keyboardist, he left), The Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, David Bowie (making the sound for the Berlin-trilogy and others) and many more. He also made lots of great experimental soloalbums.
Classically trained, listen to the open figure of "Roland the headless Thompson gunner"...to witness his brilliance...
Never before has slamming on a piano sounded so good. Andrew takes what we think makes good piano music and shreds it up and makes it his own. If this list were about unique styles of piano playing, he would certainly be worthy of the number one spot!
Axl Rose, and Eddie Van Halen above Billy Powell? Obviously fans, not musicians are making this list. Nobody played honky tonk piano like Billy. Nobody.
How is it that this great musician is #70. Give me a break. Billy was the best! R.I.P. my brother.V 2 Comments
