    KORN keys player Zac Baird.

    He's got a lot to compete against, or 'share' the stage with, I meant.
    Awesome drummer too, playing out in a conveniant crop circle. Sweet?

          I find it interesting that of all the talented musicians out there,
          http://www.christianforums.com/t7416149/
          I continuely see many of the same names brought up over and over too.
          I'm learning about lots of new artists here I'm unofamilia with, much of todays talent.
          Not wanting to rely on all the old favourites John Lord, Kieth Emerson, Rick Wakeman, Ray Manzarek, Jordan Rudess
          when trying to select new mu$ic to buy, to listen to at home.
          Who are they? Tell me "Who Do You Love"?

                My piano teacher was a musician in the armed forces. So...

                Lieutenant Michael Nold holds, so far, the highest rank in this list.

                  Too many keyboards, not enough music.

                    Here's another vote for 7th grade music teacher!

                    Mine was the best piano player I ever heard in my life. My classmates thought so, too. We would sit behind the piano and soak up the overtones.

                        of course, that was back when people actually played the piano a lot; now most homes don't even have one

                            I'm not sure the gothic make-up would suit him?

                            Or most people out of their 20s for that matter. And not most of them in it.

                              6. Glenn Gould

                              49. Van Cliburn

                              The classical guys should be on a list of their own. There are literally thousands of em. The ones that make a list like this had some hit record or other way of becoming a quasi-household name, but there are a ridicuous amount of classical guys that could make a list like this.
