  Keyboardist - Uncyclopedia
Keyboardists come from all walks of life and can thrive in most biomes, with the exception of tundra and pelagic zones.
Within the realm of classical music, keyboardists, especially pianists and organists, are held in high regard due to their incredible musical abilities and large testicles.
It is thought that the only performer ranked lower than a keyboardist is a drummer, which as everyone knows are a dime a dozen (or two cents less than the going rate for keyboardists) and are not actually musicians.

 Floridian: The best keyboardist you've never heard o
Bernie Worrell might be an unfamiliar name, but his keyboard and synthesizer riffs have been the backbone of hits for Talking Heads, Parliament and more.
Ask Worrell, 58, and you can almost feel his shrug over the telephone lines from Miami Beach, where he's helping singer Lauryn Hill jump-start work on her second album of new material (with an all-star band that includes Spin Doctors keyboardist Ivan Neville, Keith Richards' drummer/producer Steve Jordan and D'Angelo bassist Pino Palladino).
Still, the keyboardist refuses to blame Shaffer, saying the network pressured the bandleader to add horns; a decision complicated by Worrell's weekend trips to gigs with Bootsy's New Rubber Band, catching red-eye flights back to New York in time to do weeknights on Letterman.
