Kerry very much so. I have a love-hate relationship with both bands. But Kerry is the better player and also the better composer (considering he composed most of GG's stuff. Plus, considering he has one of the most beautiful voices in prog...)

It's honestly a tie for me.

Definitely Kerry.

No one said that this was suppose to be a keyboardist poll, so I vote for Kerry's gorgeous voice! Tongue

...although Tony is surprisingly good as well! I wonder why he didn't continue with this beautiful voice.




Edit: Bummer, it did actually say that in the question... Embarrassed

Maybe they should get together and do a prog album.  The contrast in styles might actually work.
Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...

You're right in that Tony never did the virtuoso stuff but I think he could pull it off. I saw Wakeman once and was left wide eyed and desperate to see Tony do the same. Just show off a bit !!

Tony for me all day here though

Great singing by Tony in the "Shepherd" video, indeed! I vote Banks.

I'll go with Kerry... his percussive / funky playing is something pretty unique... I think Tony Banks sounds a little robotic while Kerry's flow sounds so natural
