    can we still post RIP thread for our sister's neighbor's uncle's co-worker who once played guitar in summer camp?
    Does it really matter where a RIP thread is posted within this forum?

    Listened to Isle Of Wight today in quiet remembrance. Still haunted.

    Just published an hour or so ago, Sebastian Bach, formerly of the 80s band, Skid Row...



    WTF? Anyone have any clue as to what he was referencing?

    Are you suggesting Keith killed himself after reading about his suicide?

    Yeah, I was trying to figure that one out.

    Possibly, there was an article posted on Blabbermouth that Keith read? Consider the source here: Sebastian Bach. The guy isn't 100% there. He does sound out of it, as Progatron noted.

    And was his phone in his pocket the whole time because he was double-fisting the Mickey's big mouths?
    That made no sense at all.

    Everyone was freaking out on social media last night (and today) because Alicia Keys, who hosted the Grammys, performed on two different grand pianos at the same time.

    All the while, I'm just like, "haven't any of you ever heard of Keith Emerson??"

    Speaking of the Grammy's, who won the Progressive Rock Album of the Year last night?
    Currently attempting to catch up on all of the chaos in the Market Square.

    Well, Yes did, of course. What a silly question.

    Never mind prog. Tori Amos has played both a grand and Rhodes piano simultaneously for decades.

    Robert Jan Stips did concerts with 3 different pianos.

    I cannot recall a less proggy set of Grammy winners. Usually, there'll be a jazz or new age category win for someone you could consider a bit proggy, but not this year. Steve Gadd got a Grammy, best instrumental album IIRC, that's about it.

    Laurie Anderson. And Wayne Shorter won for an album that's so prog it's a 3-CD concept album packaged in a science fiction graphic novel.

    If you think about it, playing 2 grand pianos is kind of pointless, apart from the showmanship angle. How much sense would it have made if David Jackson had played 2 tenor saxes or 2 alto saxes simultaneously, rather than mixing the tenor and alto?

    Different grand pianos have a different sound. Why do you think classical musicians often want to play one make of piano or play music on a piano that was made in the time, the composer wrote the music?

    True - I don't think Bach ever saw or heard a piano in his life.
    As for two saxes at once - I don't play sax but I imagine you could play two different notes at the same time and thus create harmonies - but why stop at 2

    And the pianos in the time of Mozart also sounded different.
    I musician I know plays harpsichord and fortepiano (no piano, just it's predicessor).

    With a little lube, he can even add another.
