All bear names that also became bands whom alln share a long carear spanning 50 years whom have dazzled audiences with amazing keyboard chops for ass long. Masters of all that is keyboards. Be it hammond organ, mellotron, moog, grand piano, hochner, fender rhodes or harpischord they can do it all and with intent to awe and inspiration.

Voted Mann because overall his output (more prolific over the years ) tops the other two for me as being more enjoyable....but I'm a fan of the  first 2 Greenslade lp's and several of the Argent lp's.  Greenslade was really a combination of two players with Lawson so it's hard to separate that sound into just Dave Greenslade....his solo lp's are not that interesting to me. And Rod Argent didn't seem to have much of  a solo career.
I really have no idea who's 'better' at playing keyboards.....not being a musician.

^ Oh, anything he does live! The 40th Anniversary CD of Odessey and Oracle is a great showcase of old Zombies and Argent songs where Rod does a clinic on everything from mellotron to a pump organ. He's also one of the nicest people you could to meet in rock music. A real class act.

Manfred Mann.

Or to be politically correct, Personfred Person.

The other two are also very good as well.

Hi,

Very scary ... to choose.

However, Manfred Mann was around from the start of the "progressive" era, even though he was not always doing his own work. But one could easily say that his versions of many folks' work are/were rather progressive by comparison.

I'm not sure that Rod Argent was that great, and if one takes away one hit song, I am not sure that he would ever be remembered. Dave Greenslade, gave his name to the band, but I am not sure that the band was strictly about him.

A better listing or idea for one would be Lord vs Wakeman ... that ought to get a few folks' feathers going.
Music is not just for listening ... it is for LIVING ... you got to feel it to know what's it about! Not being told!

Lothlorien. Argent is a master of the Hammond, though for this poll, I vote Greenslade.

I'd choose Manfred even over both of those.
