Hi Willie,
That took me back years. He used to come to Chingford Organ Studios and play a Hammond organ which is what I started out with.

I'm sure my old friend would like his name spelt correctly! :) It's Keith Beckingham.

He's one of those I hold most responsible for me getting into this business in the first place - I'm happy to say. He played at the very first organ concert I went to, and I can still remember his opening number on a Hammond T200 plus leslie 'Never on a Sunday'. In fact I can probably still play that arrangement note for note.

No-one (except, as he admits, Eddie Layton) made the A100 Hammond sound quite like this. A refreshing change from all the automated styles, I'm sure the audience loves that style just as much today as it did back in the early 70s when he was touring the 'Showcase' concerts.
It's not what you play, it's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.
