I came across this video - the band is cooking, then the keyboard solo comes up and i couldnt contain my laughter. It made me wonder :

What is under the keyboard thats giving the keyboard these expressions?

So I give it to the masses... (martysax will no doubt "nail" this one) keeping it clean is advised :p

It looks to me as though this poor fellow is doing an admirable job playing his solo fighting some dislodged contact lenses.

This confirms my theory that in order to be able to play chords with your left hand while your right hand is taking a solo, you have to be insane.

that's the classic "piano face" disease, related in part to the classic rock "guitar face" ailment. A distant relative to the "Bass player grunt syndrome", that seems to be so prevalent. Unfortunately there is no cure, though there has been some success with the G-man treatments, where the patient is subjected to elevator music therapy.

The camera crew must have had some history with this guy - note that none of the other musicians got the Extreme Closeup treatment.

I enjoyed the two tenors. Thanks for that.

I thought I saw him hit a fourth pedal labelled "Electrolux!"

But seriously folks;

I once played in an experimental (mostly mental) trio including me on woodwinds, a guitarist playing an un-tuned vintage Les Paul, and a drummer who had a similar "Electrolux" pedal which operated a vintage Electrolux cannister-style vaccuum amplified through a wah wah and distortion effects box. He called it his "Ambient noise generator."

Honestly, my life is funny enough, I don't make this stuff up!

"B3 Face" may be an even more severe affliction.. I saw this guy (Tony Monaco) a couple of years ago with Red Holloway and Plas Johnson (& Lewis Nash on drums).. great show and Tony was in top form, playing-wise and expression-wise.
thanks for that video! awsome!
