so basically anyone that isn't Rick Wakeman or Keith Emerson? Putting Tony Banks on an 'underrated' list is pushing it a bit as is Eddie Jobson and Patrick Moraz. That would probably be my top five list of all time!
Kerry Minnear and Dave Greenslade underrated?!

1. Fred Schendel (Glass Hammer)
2. Par Lindh
3. Martin Orford
4. Jurgen Fritz (Triumvirat)
5. Stale Storlokken (Elephant 9)

honourable mention for Mark Kelly who tends to hide his light under a bushel. Incommunicado has some scintillating keyboard playing!

In no particular order:
Vincent Crane (Atomic Rooster, Dexys Midnight Runners)
Rod Argent (Zombies, Argent)
Morgan Fisher (Morgan, Mott the Hoople)
Dave Greenslade (Colosseum, Greenslade)
Gianni and Vittorio Nocenzi (Banco) these brothers might count as two choices?
