You may like this guy. It's old school, and there is a chance performance enhancers were used.



One of my all time favs!

Raw talent in the purest sense.

Thanks!

Peace

Before I even opened the post my mind said Jenkees!

Found him when he came out, he made it big on YouTube and fell off, so to speak.

Heard he's doing big behind the scenes production on other things though.

Check his website for new stuff. ronaldjenkees.com

It's amazing that Focus ever got round to making that work live. The original, according to the producer, was mostly razor blades and sticky tape.

Don't know about sick and dope, but is any keyboard player funkier than Stevie Wonder?

Herbie and Chick would agree that NOBODY plays the clavinet like Stevie. Nobody is that funky!

The raw energy that guy has is amazing. He looks like he could explode at any minute. But I cannot look at his eyes and think anything other than "man that dude is wired tight".

And to bring in a flute after the yodel? just wow.

probably not. What do you think of Bernie Worell? Yeah, I'm asking your opinion.

Don't know him much. I don't really pay much attention to keyboard players, unless you count pianists.

P-Funk were great, though.

That's it? I finally ask your opinion and you don't have one?



A musician friend of mine was talking him up pretty good and I see his name a lot. I really couldn't find anything too exciting by him.

I love all kinds of music, but the truth is I'm not really into virtuosity except when it comes to guitar players (because I am one). I can tell a good player on any instrument, but — pianists excepted — one competent keyboard player is mostly as good to me as another. The thing about electronic instruments is that the sound is all in the instrument, not the player.

It seems to me that keyboard players exercise their taste, imagination and feeling more on the abstract elements of elements of music — note choice (if one is improvising), timing and phrasing — rather than on the physical instrument. You can achieve a personal style on an electronic keyboard, but I don't think you can really get a personal sound out of them. As Noel Gallagher — heh — said, it's not really Liam Howlett's sound, it belongs to Mr Yamamoto in Japan who designed the synth.

Wait, though, did I mention Liam Howlett? Now there's a synth player. Though that's a poor and rather inaccurate description of what he did in the Prodigy.

Ha I somehow knew from the title that this would be Ronald. I discovered him a few years ago..actually named my cat after him. And, while his talent has dimmed in my perception somewhat, I DO remember my initial amazement and I keep a special "favorite music" place in my heart for him.

Who are you?
Who have you played with?


I've played the 'A' circuit on the West Coast, been on radio and cut a few CD's. Due to a break up of my best band, we cut short before our break out. Same time and stages as Nickleback, GOGO, etc. My most memorable was opening for April Wine During their comeback but that's another story.

Jammed with a number of notables like Neil Young, Doctor Hook (Ray Sawyer actually) Triumph, Buddy Guy back in the 80's in Vancouver...all way back. Nothing serious just basements, stage invites for fun and after hours bars. Played around Asia for awhile but just for fun.

Gave up music for a number of years but lately I'm getting that 'lost' feeling without music.

I won't share the name of the band as some here may know of it and it's not something I like to re-visit actually. A very sore spot for me. My wife wants me to take another shot but I feel as if my time has passed for it. Maybe.

For now...I bake cookies...


Peace

I've known of Ron some years ago... Definitely a good synth keyboardist. Shame it seems he quit uploading to YouTube some time ago.

But what about Merton? I'd say that guy's a genius with a piano.

OK, he's got skills, but whats with all the speed?
A lot of that was just noise, to me.

The man needs to slow down just a tad

George was the absolute king of Key-tar! Check out this sick jam with Stanley Clarke on bass.
