I nominate the keyboardist in the UK 80's band Talk Talk. Don't know his name though.

Talk Talk is one of the best bands ever. Have you heard the truly beautiful music they created after they decided not to be synthpop? holy crikey!

Roy Bittan from the E Street Band.

Someone else mentioned Vangelis.

Rick Wakeman from Yes.

And Moby anyone?

Alicia Keys is unbelievable although she is R&B and not rock.

Ben Folds is my current favorite piano player. I don't think Chris Martin or many other current artists can come anywhere close to doing what Folds can do technically on the piano. "Ascent of Stan" and "Zak and Sara" are good examples.

Yay for people mentioning Roy Bittan - Backstreets and NYC Serenade are
I'm also glad people recognize the great piano playing of Tori, even if they're not huge fans of her music in general.

Even go back to some of the Ben Folds Five stuff

"Magic," "Army," "Narcolepsy," "One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces," "Philosophy".... all amazing songs.

Roy Bittan is awesome. Ray Charles and Elton John are also up there in my opinion, and Chris Martin's songs are simple, but he's helping to reintroduce piano to rock, so I gotta give him props (and I'm a big Coldplay fan, so sue me... ).
