Yes European piano tone =bell like ?
The last time I played a fairly large New York Steinways grand I was younger.I cannot remember what I thought, except that I liked it.I never liked the 130 sized upright all that much .Thank heavens
as the price was far more than we could have paid.

So I just got finished with the movie. As I said there were parts that I didn't care for (personal stuff of eltons) but overall, I liked it.

I liked the fact that it's a "fantasy musical". I think that they made the right decision on the format.

I think that the main actors did a really good job with their roles.

I'd LOVE a full length documentary about Elton with him talking about his life and playing piano and talking about his technique.

His music is woven into the fabric of my life...I grew up on his stuff and to this day it holds up well.

I guess he's a Yamaha man. If I met him I'd ask him about it considering the conversations that go on here about them. smile

You're not alone.

I read in one of his concert programs that he was the only artist to have a song in the Billboard Top Ten for 27 consecutive years!

I [dont] remember when rock was young, and I don’t track the top forty, but I do know most of Elton John’s hits.

When I saw him in the 90s there was no band. It was just him and his piano.
