Who's the best piano player?
Living or dead? Are we comparing classical to jazz pianists or the best in each category?
Edit: Just saw the poll. How could you leave out Billy Joel?
On your list it would have to be Rick Wakemen.
Mr. Snakey, you are a wise man indeed.
His solo work apart from Yes is amazing. He is still recording some great music today.
(the killer) jerry lee lewis
even tho he isnt on the list he is the best to me.
I vote for player producer writer and incredible musician Michael Omartian. More versatile and more skilled than any of the above in my opinion.
Wait, there is one other candidate, though he is truly a Jazz specialist. The late great Oscar Peterson could play circles and sixty fourth notes around any of the above.
John whats-his-name. He even made a few albums. No, not Tesh, it's somebody else.
I'd add Tori Amos and Norah Jones to your list
Why isn't there a 'Hickboy' option in this poll? Oh well, I voted anyways...
Harry Connick, Jr. plays the piano about as well as he can sing.
Agreed. Great TV.
This list doesn't even come near to considering the best piano players of all time. Some of these may be your favorites, but the list of jazz and classical pianists that greatly surpass these musicians in talent and ability is pages long...too long to list here.
Nora the cat.
That's odd, my polling list didn't include anyways. Is their playing that good?
I'm just gonna list some of my favorite tickler's of the 88's:
Jerry Lee lewis, Nicky Hopkins, Ian Mcglaclen, Kate Bush, Rick Wright, Garth Hudson/Richard Manuel, Booker T. Jones, Alan Price, John Lord, Al Kooper, Leon Russell, Lee Michaels, Chris Stainton, Professor Longhair, Dr. John, James Booker,.......etc,etc,etc...
I don't see Stevie or Donnie.
