I like Ben Folds. He kinda inspires me to learn to play piano.

I doubt people have fought holy wars and killed millions of people in the name of the Beatles, either. So, yeah, Jesus probably was bigger than them.

I love Elton, as well as Billy Joel. There is a good chance he will drive a car through my property, but I still love the man.

Zakk Wylde is mine. If you dont believe me, listen to his band Pride & Glory. I dont know what good piano playing is, but hey, its Zakk Wylde.

I definitely think the pianist makes the piece.
When it comes to my favorites...elton john is pretty good but not the best. I've seen much better. He's overrated, I've played some of his stuff and its not super difficult.
I find it interesting that, on classical pieces, it could sound one way when one person plays it, but someone else can interpret it entirely different. It's really cool. It sounds like almost two different pieces, and unless the composer is still alive, there's no way in knowing how he/she really wanted it to sound. (Especially with really old stuff.) So it's up to interpretation.
I think that there's no "best" pianist, because when it comes to looking at music, anyone who knows how to play piano can sit down and practice a little and play it. It's really your opinion about who interprets it the best...because as most pianists get to an advanced level, they can play whatever. It's about HOW they play it.
