Ouch...

by Chris Randall
 



Ever wonder what it would sound like if Mannheim Steamroller ran over Nelson Riddle while Dream Theatre was driving? Now you know. This player chose to remain wisely anonymous, because if he didn't, people would be showing up to his house to pimp-slap him.


On a slightly unrelated note, I'm trying to imagine the universe where this would be considered a reasonable contribution to our shared culture. Wherever it is, I _never_ want to visit.

I'm pretty sure he mic'd the recording, since you can hear this really rapid clacking sound every time he gets really furious.

I don't know why, but I think that's the funniest part of the video - listening to the keys just clack away like mad while this decapitated fool thrashes away on keytar.

Careful now or some sucky type will be along to chide us all for not appreciating how technically able this is all supposed to be. Oh no, we're such haters.

It was worth it only to check out what other videos this guy had posted on youtube, including this abomination with Eddie Van Halen and Jan Hammer together on stage:

I never knew how many people were devoted to making shitty music with keytars until I started reading this blog.

This video mainly sucks due to the lack of obligatory 'pained' (aka 'soulful') faces and chicken-pecking motions.

Please don't post headless videos of bad keytar playing. We want to see the _entire_ package.

Thank you.

Clearly an homage to the ending credits of Neon Genesis Evangelion...

The thing about these videos that really bums me out is knowing that there are people out there who can't see the difference between mis-spent, pointless virtuosity like this, and that of Miles Davis and John Coltrane. Or, since we're talking keyboardists, someone like Kenny Kirkland.
