“[he] showed up with a piano and asked if he could try it on Jailhouse Rock”
Rock bands always seem to start with the guitar. But a good band, a fun band, has to be about more than just star guitar player. The relationship of base and drums is critical. And keys bring the added sparkle that broadens a band’s potential audience. My band started out as a typical guitar/bass/drums outfit. Until one day, one of the guitarists showed up with a piano and asked if he coult try it on Jailhouse Rock. We’ve never been the same since.
