I don't think I know 10 keyboard players, hah! But why should that stop me?

1) Reginald Robinson http://mfile.akamai.com/3171/wm2/muze.download.akamai.com/2890/us/uswm2/717 /72717_1_01.asx?

2) Scott Joplin (who proclaimed himself "King of the Ragtime Writers," but considered himself only a mediocre piano player. I with I could be that mediocre.

All others -

Rick Wakeman
Keith Emerson
Tony Banks
Jon Lord
Tony Carey
Danny Louis
Chuck Leavell
Gregg Allman

Like to add Joe Zawinful. Also perhaps Herbie Hancock?

Although I am no Zeppelin fanatic, I do dig what John Paul Jones did with the keys. Stuff like Your Time is Gonna Come.

How come nobody has mentioned:

Mr Rogers - You know, the guy in the sweater who runs the neighborhood.
Schroeder - The dude from Peanuts - He wails on that little piano doesn't he?
Edith Bunker - She could play in my band anytime.
The Abominable Dr. Phibes - aka Vincent Price - Would have loved to hear him on Dark Star- that boy could really space!

There must be others I'm sure!
