Celebrities and Synthesizers


IndySteve

Recommended Posts

Post here if you know a celebrity who is a known synthesizer enthusiast and include their axes of choice if known. For purposes of this post, I'm referring to celebrities who are not generally known as keyboard players or even as musicians. +1 if you think this would be a good topic for an article in Keyboard Magazine.
Come out with your hands up! I have a synthesizer, and I'm not afraid to use it.

Food Network's Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) has a band set up in his kitchen studio. Last time I looked he had a Nord of some sort sitting up there.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

I'll bet Charlie Sheen has something. After all, he cannot seem to keep his hands off of his organ..

 

:facepalm:

 

Actually, I seem to recall seeing a K2661 on that show a few years back.

Who could forget Chevy Chase and his Fender Rhodes / Tequila bar? (o.k., just a character in a movie, but still.)

 

 

Everyone probably knows this but I think he was a drummer for Steely Dan.

Yeah, and didn't he quit because he was convinced they were going nowhere?

Korg Kronos 2 61, Kronos 1 61, Dave Smith Mopho x4, 1954 Hammond C2, Wurlitzer 200A, Yamaha Motif 6, Casio CDP-100, Alesis Vortex Wireless, too much PA gear!

In college, Chevy was in a band with Becker and Fagan at one point, but that was long before Steely Dan existed.

 

That might explain why Becker and Fagen are never going back to their old school...

I've often wondered about Steely Dan's name... which sounds remotely like Steeleye Span, a British folk band that started in the late 60's.

It's the name of a dildo. Really. :laugh: Naked Lunch by Burroughs.

 

Yep. hence my "kidding" comment...

 

I've heard he was a bit of a dick, so maybe you're right on the money after all. :laugh:
