Top Ten Keyboard / Piano Performances


The Top Ten

1 Close to the Edge - Rick Wakeman (Yes)
2 Light My Fire - Ray Manzarek (The Doors)

Don't agree with the list?! I do! Too bad! This deserves number 1. I love this song! But, Yes did do a good job on that song. Go Doors! Mr. Mojo Risin!

3 Highway Star - Jon Lord (Deep Purple)
4 Roundabout - Rick Wakeman (Yes)
5 Lazy - Jon Lord (Deep Purple)
6 Firth of Fifth - Tony Banks (Genesis)

This is one keyboard part I would love to see someone replicate. Banks does an epic job of creating the keyboard line to one of Genesis' best tracks.

7 Riders on the Storm - Ray Manzarek (The Doors)
8 Tarkus - Keith Emerson (ELP)
9 Dance of Eternity - Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater)
