We've had this on guitarists... Why not keyboardists and pianists?

Who do you think's the best out there? (not necessarily your favorite)

Richard Wright from Pink Floyd. Really liked the space music phase they went through before Dark Side of the Moon.

Always liked Ray Manzarek from the Doors as a second choice.

I'm sure there's much better, but I enjoyed their contributions the most.

Tony Banks from Genesis.
One of the most imaginitive and creative
keyboardists in rock today.

Listen to "Firth of Fifth" in the album, "Selling England by the Pound".
