I can't decide: George Martin, Billy Preston or Nicky Hopkin imo
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.

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:
Who is the silly person who voted for George?! (Harrison) Was that you, Innerlight?
Speak up! How can it be any Beatle besides Paul?
One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
