I'm going to say Paul (and I think that's what most people think) although I really love many of lennon's piano (or other keyboard instrument) lines

I was gonna vote for Billy Preston, but then I thought about all the songs where I love what George Martin does on the keyboard/piano, so I chose him. As for the best Beatle keyboardist, I picked Paul.
It's still fun to watch John in this though. a-hard-days-night-john-1

Although Billy Preston was an incredible keyboard player, George Martin was a classically-trained pianist of an extremely high calibre, so I'd give the first pick to him. Paul for the second one.

Well, GM's abilities were obvious, and Nicky Hopkins' contributions to many Stones/Who/Jeff Beck/etc. records were absolutely crucial. But I'm giving this one to Billy Preston on the basis of "Spacerace" alone:


SO funky!


Who is the silly person who voted for George?! (Harrison) Was that you, Innerlight?

Speak up!  How can it be any Beatle besides Paul?
