Couldn't get everyone into the poll, so I took the more "important" ones.

Vote: Mars. Without doubt.

I pick George Duke. Tommy Mars second, then maybe Don Preston third.

Tommy Mars.

But shit I wanted to vote for George Duke too--and also Bobby Martin, not so much just as a keyboard player, but because he's so fucking great at anything he plays or sings.

So, Van Dyke Parks was in the Mothers mid 1966. What did he do that is so much more worthy of mention than Ian Underwood?

Why don't we just pretend the Van Dyke Parks entry says Ian Underwood, and vote for him there?

Wasn't a problem for me, since I voted for Duke. But Ian was my second choice.

Good old Dom de Wild, he got my vote. I agree Ian should have been on there. But what the hey... polls are polls.

George.

I agree that Ian and Eddie belong in the poll ahead of most of the people listed.

Don Preston!

Even with Ian I still would've voted for the monstrous Dom DeWild. The most creative and far-out keys player FZ ever had.

i always enjoy peter wolf's melodic ideas whenever he got a chance.

when i listen to the 1979 band live recordings, i sometimes wonder what the 9 (yes!) of them are doing up there!
big band doesn't quite match the sound they make, or is it just me..

My favorite big FZ bands (that is, at least 8, even 7 seems too compact for FZ) are always the ones with horn players. Not a fan of the bands where FZ had two keyboardists and like three or four guitarists! I like when things are more distinguished: for example, one or two guitar (the second being rhythm under FZ solos), one keyboard, sax, trumpet, trombone, percussion, bass, drums. 1967-9 Mothers, Wazoo and 1973 bands are my favorites for that matter.

I agree. But could be talked into swapping 2 and 3.

Because that's totally disrespectful.
I gave him a vote.
