He was a musical genius, but also, that hardest of things for a keyboard player, a rock n roll showman. At times it looked like he was playing a telephone exchange, at other times, that he was wrestling a piece of furniture. And all the while, out came this amazing music, cultured and sophisticated, but also raw and rock n roll. With his passing we lost one-of-a-kind. His legacy will live long in our ears and hearts.
