I'm talking about lead singers in major rock bands. No one tops Matt as a pianist in that category.

Freddie Mercury. Don't believe me? Listen to "The March Of The Black Queen," "The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke," "Seven Seas Of Rhye," "Love Of My Life," "Death On Two Legs (Dedicated To...)," "Seaside Rendezvous," "Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon," "My Melancholy Blues," "You Take My Breath Away," "You And I," "The Millionaire Waltz," "Teo Torriate (Let Us Cling Together)," "Nevermore," "Bohemian Rhapsody" [obviously], "Get Down, Make Love," "We Are The Champions," "Don't Stop Me Now," "It's A Hard Life," and the rest of Queen's discography while you're at it. Freddie is quite possibly the most underrated rock pianist of all time.

And if you throw rock ACTS into the mix, as in including bands and solo artists, I'll also mention Billy Joel and Elton John, the essentials.

All three of these dudes blow Matt out of the water even on Matt's best days. Not to say Matt isn't a better pianist than most rock singers, but even if he were as good as Freddie, Billy, and Elton, he's not yet proved it.

EDIT: I think I'd even argue Matt's a better guitarist and a better singer than he is a pianist (not that that matters, but it's just a related opinion). He certainly seems to care more about singing and playing guitar than playing piano.

As a 24 year old muse fan allow me to be more specific, Matthew James Bellamy is the best pianist in a rock band that's currently still relevant and not a solo artist. I'd agree Freddie might be better and I would also agree that Eltons better but one of those blokes is dead and has been for a while and the other dude while still great is a solo artist. Never mind Billie Joel. So while its all a matter of opinion I stand by my original statement. And FYI I'm a Freddie and Elton fan too.

"I meant lead singers who are still alive...and in a band."

Basically you just want to believe that Matt is the best at something. I mean...specifying that the pianist has to be a singer AND be in a band to qualify is just so pointless

What's next, he has to be short and have a chinbeard?

In all fairness, Chris Martin actually has some fairly complex piano stuff on VLV and MX...but he's no Matt Bellamy

D'accord. I wasn't aware of those other requirements at first, in which case I would say Matt's probably right up there, but he still might not be the best if we look into the matter closely.

Maybe I'm wrong (quite a novice piano player) but Matt's piano playing, on-record at least, really isn't that complex/difficult. Before I even started properly learning how to play, I was able to pick up Sunburn and Space Dementia pretty quickly. Even the opening to Cross-Pollination just looks like a load of octaves.

Matt may well be a great piano player but he doesn't really show it much on record imo.

Lead Singer in a rock band, pretty simple to follow. Still only Freddie above him that I can think of, Suppose I should have been that specific in my first post but Christ on a bike. Took me apart like I'm running for president
