Best Pianist In Rock and Roll?

a narrow field, to be sure.

who do you consider "the best"?

please tell who's your favorite and who you think is most gifted.

some pianists in rock off the top of my head:

tori amos
chris martin
thom yorke
billy joel
elton john
john paul jones
paul mccartney
stevie wonder (is he rock?)


please don't include any fly by night "pianists" that play on only one or two songs, ala axl rose, steven tyler, the edge, etc.

holland is indeed very good.

my vote goes to thom yorke for obvious and more than a little biased reasons.

Probably Billy Joel. Though Freddie Mercury was quite expressive.
