First of all, welcome to The Bakery!
Given the success of Bong's "Greatest Frontman" blog (http://the-bong-show.blogs.sportsli
818) and DaFan's "Greatest Guitarist" blog (http://da-fan-in-japan.blogs.sports
47994) I decided to create a "Greatest Keyboardist" blog. As I am a keyboardist and piano player myself this is a special area of interest for me.
Here in the preliminary round, any keyboardists that you think were an important part of music history or that are simply great musicians may be mentioned. Please post up to ten keysmen or keyswomen that you think deserve the title of "Greatest Keyboardist Ever - As Chosen By The Members Of The CBS Sportsline Community." These may a rock music player, ex. Rick Wakeman, or they could be a jazz keyboardist or electronica (ex. Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream). To throw in a twist, they could even be classical keyboardists such as Mozart of Beethoven - whoever you like! If you post more than ten, the additional posts will be counted as "honorable mentions" unless there are not enough votes. At the end of this round, I will tally up the votes and seed the top sixteen keyboardists accordingly (or 32 if enough votes are received). Although I am casting a vote in this round, after this I will only vote if there is a tie.
The voting will close at 11 AM US Eastern Standard Time on June 29.
Feel free to comment on other posts, but remember to be respectful to all. Any comments that I believe to be overly rude or offensive will be removed and that persons votes will not be counted.
Finally, I would like to thank YankeeLuvnGator, Da Fan in Japan, The Bong Show, and brewcrew 333, as well as everyone on the various song games and the "What Are You Listening To" thread for inspiring me to create this blog and also for welcoming me to the Community.

PS - I am still looking for song and band names. If you have any ideas, please comment on my other blog: http://www.sportsline.com/mcc/blogs
