Jerry Lee Lewis I'd say. He started it all off and in terms of rock n roll he makes those three look like saints.

Those are all rock bands, rather than rock 'n' roll, plus they usually played keyboards / Hammond organs rather than piano. Wink


Still, if keyboard / organ players are allowed and we're not strictly limited to R 'n' R, I'll nominate Keith Emerson, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, Axl Rose, Vangelis and Jean Michel Jarre.

When I mention "Rock 'n' Roll" I include all genres, variations and such. And yes, I also include keyboardists.

Let's face it: no list can ever be all-inclusive,

For example, on any list I readily include

Little Richard - the self-described architect of Rock 'n' Roll. And who can contest him?
Johnny Johnston - Well, maybe this man can. 'Twas he from whom Chuck Berry derived his sound.
Nicky Hopkins - Like J. J., never pursued stardom but always in demand by the best.
John Paul Jones - The plain one in the band from Valhalla.
Ian Stuart - Founding member of the Rolling Stones, dug for them their bluesy foundation before they demoted him to road-manager in order to pursue boy-band fame.
Robert Lamm - The jazz-rooted stage-right man for Chicago.
