Tom Waites continues to be my personal piano idol. wink

favorite Waites quote:

""Your hands are like dogs, going to the same places they've been. You have to be careful when playing is no longer in the mind but in the fingers, going to happy places. You have to break them of their habits or you don't explore, you only play what is confident and pleasing. I'm learning to break those habits by playing instruments I know absolutely nothing about, like a bassoon or a waterphone."


Only the humble improve.

The Load Out by Jackson Brown

..."Now, roll them cases out and lift them amps
Haul them trusses down and get 'em up them ramps
'Cause when it comes to moving me
You know you guys are the champs
But when that last guitar's been packed away
You know that I still want to play
So just make sure you've got it all set to go
Before you come for my piano"...

My list comprises more than just Piano but E-piano and other keyed instruments as well:
Running on empty - Jackson Browne
Say you love me - Fleetwood Mac
Babe - Styx
Nutrocker - Emerson, Lake, and Palmer (their version rocks!)
And they're all in love - The Who (I believe Nicky Hopkins played the piano in that tune - off of the Who by numbers album)
Breakfast in America - Supertramp (the whole album. Very nice playing on the keys throughout!)
Easy - The Commodores
And that's just the tip of the iceberg

A worthy effort on Layla. I've listened to loads of "Layla" videos on Youtube, and amazingly, as simple as the piano part is on the album, I still haven't heard it played in its entirety, note for note as originally recorded, except for the posted Derek and the Dominos submissions!

As far as rock musicians go, Edgar is one very bad, bad man!! thumb

A better than average keyboardist, and a monster alto-sax player.

Following on the path and style of the Moody Blues' "Knights in White Satin", here's the tune by 10cc that put poyphonic pad-synthesizers on the map, and a great piece of music, excellently arranged:

Layla has a nice piano section but it doesn't start from the beginning of the song.


Signatures are so overrated...

It's already been mentioned, so consider this a double recommendation for Jackson Browne's "The Load-Out" -- one of my favorites. smile
