The Keymaster

If you watch Martin Scorsese's film The Last Waltz, you learn that in exchange for joining The Band, keyboardist Garth Hudson asked each member to pay him 10 dollars a week. It turns out he was telling his parents that he was teaching these guys Piano so they wouldn't think he was wasting his classical talents. In my opinion he made a better use of them then just doing dusty old Bach recitals in Canada.

How about the shape those Keyboards are in huh?
