If the history of rock keyboards had a name, that name would be Benmont Tench. From his seminal work as a founding member of the Heartbreakers to sessions with everyone from Bob Dylan to Stevie Nicks to Elvis Costello, his sound has defined the tasteful, minimalist approach to rock 'n' roll keyboards: you only need to play a few notes, but they need to be the right notes! Look for our cover story in the November 2009 issue of Keyboard, and enjoy these one-of-a-kind, up-close videos where Benmont holds forth with interviewer Jon Regen, and shows you How. To. Play. The. Stuff.Lots of stuff. Time to get schooled...
