    Jon was the Lord. Manzarek was so fine - try to imagine "Light my Fire" without him - but I suspect Lord could have done the part with one broken arm.

    Here's my related Q from a couple of weeks ago. Lots of good answers:

    Brooker T, a little Bach, an a discordant sneer at Louie-Louie in one piece? Jeeeeeez.

    ONLY thing I didn't like about big Hammonds and Leslie cabs: Carrying them in and out of gigs. Ugh.

    I like both. But because of the style of music he plays Manzarek gets the edge. But Lord is a beast as well. I see them both live. The keyboard is like the bastard child of music, does not get the respect it deserves. But these two dudes help give it the respect it deserves

  • Although I think Jon owns this one, don't throw Rick Wakeman or Richard Wright under the bus either

  • Miriam.....love them both as keyboardists but, have to go with the man from Leicester.........Jon Lord.
