Piano Players


Mick Jagger does it.  So does Springsteen.  Seger, Sheryl Crow and, I am sure, others do it as well.  It drives me crazy!!!!  It’s nothing but showboating by an artist that just needs to show up to be THE show.  What do they do?  They play the piano.  Take Springsteen for example.  He has the whole E-Street band to back him up which includes a keyboardist.  So, what does Bruce do during one song.  He has the keyboardist step backstage and Bruce goes over and plays the piano for a song.  WHY?  Does the other guy not know that song?  No, it is just to show everyone that he can also play the piano. 

 As I said, Mick does it as well.  They even bring out an extra one for him and he plays along with the regular keyboardist (Chuck Levell). 

 Sure, it’s not a big deal but it still looks so tacky and staged. 

 Anyway, let’s get a moratorium on this!!
