I decided to do this list because guitarists, bass players and drummers always seem to get the pub and I rarely ever see keyboard players getting ranked. So here we go.
1) Keith Emerson – He used to wrestle his keyboards in concert and he’s a classically trained pianist to boot. The Heart and Soul of ELP.
2) Rick Wakeman - Might have the fastest fingers in the business he is a real showman. Besides being the best that YES has ever had his solo work is enduring.
3) Ray Manzarek – It’s not about the speed it’s about the precision and the enduring music that he helped create with the Doors. It’s timeless.
