Rockin' Songs with Piano

Post by JChampion »

Does anyone else really enjoy a strong piano in a rockin' song?
I've been listening to and trying to find more of this sound.
I'm a big fan of The Jim Jones Revue and of course Jerry Lee Lewis.
I love the song "From a Buick 6" by Gary US Bonds and I feel this is the main reason why "Julie's Been Working for the Drug" is one of my Clash favorites.

Hello,

Pretty much this whole album rocks (or boogie woogies - the musicians here will classify this better than I).

Remember getting the dvd "Rockin Pianos" a few years back with Jerry Lee, Fats & Ray Charles in concert together. Absolutely brilliant stuff. One of my favourite music things ever.

Always loved this fucked up Zeppelin song:


Featuring Ian Stewart of The Stones who has plenty of great contributions to that band.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Mojo Nixon's old bamd the Toadliquors had a great piano player Pete "Wet Dawg" Godon. Checkout the album Mojo did with Jello Biafra, great piano on there.

It seems like it was a more prevalent in the 50's. Which is a shame because as much as I like the Jim Jones Revue, even he kinda changed musical direction with Jim Jones and The Righteous Mind.

See thats a real fun song that I missed by not being into Led Zepplin. A hidden gem for me.

I've been Mott obsessed lately, "All the Way From Memphis" fits here. "Editions of You" from Roxy Music is a great one.

Definitely a lot more of a prominent instrument back then.

Agreed and me being a teenager in the New Wave 80's with keyboards, I missed out. LOL
In my advancing old age, my music has become a lot more eclectic.
