or is it too difficult?

i regard the beatles as the greatest of all-time and they are kind of my favourite,[although i rarely play them] but i never include them in these lists becoz they're sorta above all that. in a universe of their own. its just a given that they are number one.

actually some others on the list i don't play much anymore, but when i was into them they meant a lot to me.

king's x
queen
thin lizzy
ufo
early aerosmith
slade[in their heyday and before]
late cocteau twins
pink floyd
bjork
led zeppelin
deep purple

Not really Led Zep incorporated keyboards but not forward in the mix. I also loved Keith Emerson in the old Nice days but not that impressed with ELP with the later stuff. Also saying that Keith Emerson was a keyboards master that Rick Wakeman only aspired to.
There is something about the Hammond that is lacking from electronic keyboards. Cannot think of a band that really pushed the organ sound since.

Download America by the Nice to hear how a Hammond Organ rocks it is classic.

Yes the Doors Ray Manzarek used a Hammond Organ but not in the forefront. Classic organ is Deep Purple Bananas featuring Don Airey on keyboards. Some classic riffs on this one. I am an organ tragic love everything from church organ to moog synth bring it on what a bass buzz. Now taken the thread off topic..

Thanks for that enjoyed the Boston track. I have a few Atomic Rooster albums some great Hammond but the vocals do not really stand up compared to Purple.

Taken this thread way off topic should be the keyboard lovers thread. I have never been a great Doors fan so not really heard that much bar from radio play.

Forgot this Rondo 69 by Nice way back in 69, Sorcerer's Apprentice

For me growing up in the 60's in England, played keyboard in an amateur band, saw Pink Floyd live a couple of times in there early days. We were the support group for Fleetwood Mac a couple of times so like them.like. Also Jimi Hendrix, my base guitarist went to the same school as Noël Reading who played base for Hendrix, watched him on a Hammond jamming with The Move, great.
Also The Graham Bond Organisation, Graham Bond who later was Aunty Jack "I'll rip your bloody arms off" he played a Hammond C3.
Saw Swanee, Jimmy Barns's brother, last year, his guitarist plays a guitar that can sound just like a Hammond, I mean he played whiter shade of pale and you would swear it was a Hammond. How electronics have changed music.
