Default Piano Men

Yesterday I watched Elton John's concert at Madison Square Garden, New York, that celebrated his 60th birthday.

What a long and established career this man has had, and I wondered what other piano-playing solo artists have done so much for music. A few sprung to mind (of course there are others), however................

From the list above, who is your favourite?

now this is my kinda post.

Stevie wonder I have the greatest respect for as a keyboard man and all-round musical force.....Ray charles could make the piano sing........I liked Elton John's earlier stuff, gotta say..

My hero on the 88's though is Herbie Hancock.

I know the list could have been much longer, but I was trying to concentrate on contributions to the music industry, and I can't even name one Liberace song!
