Thanks Jim,

Not being English perhaps the expression 'upside-down' is not really the correct one, I meant this



Should I have said 'from behind', 'flipped over' or something else? or I can add the picture so people will get what I meant, I have this one and i think that also some of his knife-stabbing.

In any case it's a good suggestion to include a reference to Emerson's spinning piano, I'l do an edit in the piano entry, I have pictures already Tongue

And I'm of course open to remarks, corrections or criticisms, during my research I found contradictory information regarding certain subjects and at some point I had to choose for the version which seemed most logical or reliable, but there can certainly be mistakes and if anyone finds one I'm happy to edit.

Emersom definitely played the organ upside down. Or at least with him underneath it from behind. Whiich is what he says  here. (from the floor)

Holy smokes, well done.  I loved the keyboard section which I was at least somewhat familiar with.  Once I realized that you went into the other instruments, I realized 'I've got to get back to work'.  Let's just say that I know what I'm reading tonight after the family goes to bed.

Thanks to all for the appreciation.
I had been toying with the idea in my head for quite some time and mentally collecting the information I knew, but before I started writing I thought that it would be quite a short article with just a few basic comments on each instrument. When I started searching for the pictures and a few more details to complement what I already knew I learnt many things I did not know and the thing got longer and longer, it was great fun working on it Tongue
Let's say that from the moment I started writing and collecting pictures until I posted it a few weeks and some sleepless nights have passed LOL
