I love the idea of a Church pianist, but better an organ or very better still a harmonium! I own an 1870's Sterling reed organ from Derby, Connecticut that is very rare, I got it for £10, around 12 dollars, it's worth much more as it's a rare one. How on earth it came to England, don't ask me, but I deal in antiquities.... It takes up space but I love it!

I prefer the organ, too, but the one in my church is out of commission. I was right in the middle of the second hymn of the Easter service back in 2017 and everything but the bass pedals cut out. My brother looked it over, since I can repair a piano but electronics are beyond me, and we narrowed the problem down to the speaker. I've been trying to track down a replacement speaker since then, but I can't find one in the price range that the church will authorize and I'm not in a position to be able to pay for one without compensation.

It's amazing how small the world is really, I met someone that clearly knew someone, very closely, that you met! Banks was the best keyboardist of the day, with Wakeman a close second.... it was a new beginning, a renaissance of music that got dashed!!!!

I'm afraid there was a misunderstanding. I didn't meet Tony Banks. I was saying that it did me more good to meet the unknown, though widely heard, keyboardist than it would have to meet the man that got me into keyboards to begin with.

I actually lost a bit of respect for Banks when I found out that his condition for keeping the band together was to get rid of their drummer and hire one of "equal stature." Mayhew actually did pretty well on Trespass, so I'm sure he wasn't talking about music. Mayhew was the only working class member of Genesis. I'm not sure how the whole class system works in England, but as an egalitarian who couldn't care less about being descended from members of the merchant class the whole "get rid of this peasant or we shut down the band" thing rubbed me the wrong way.

I'm still on a Genesis kick, but lately I've been going back to Billy Joel. I honestly don't know what I think of him. Only the Good Die Young, a song I can't escape hearing at least every two days, is basically a few minutes of him saying "forget your values and jump into bed with me." As such it is the only song to date that I've heard that infuriates me to the point of wanting to punch the author.

But at the same time he wrote four of my all time favorite songs. I don't know if I want to chat with him for ideas or just break his jaw.

Here's one of his that's been getting a lot of mileage with me lately.

The only  stadium concert I ever went to was Billy Joel in Croke park, in Dublin pronounced Crow. He was introduced by the comedian  Peter  Kay. Check  him out if you  don't know  him.
I was with my girlfriend. I was entranced.
