Roger O’Donnell is an English keyboardist best known for his work with The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, The Thompson Twins and Berlin. I’ve had the pleasure to see Roger play live in recent years, he’s definitely one of the main reasons why we fall in love with certain songs he wrote. Here are a few selections Roger was kind enough to share with us:
Efterklang – Mirador with the Danish National Chamber Orchestra. A go to band for me when nothing else is worth listening to.
Herbie Hancock – Vein Melter, Herbie “the keeper of the keys” pure Fender Rhodes magic from my mentor.
Tortoise – High Class Slim Came Floatin’ In, musical over achievers yes but they are prepared to push it to the edge, inspirational.
Tonto’s Expanding Headband – Cybernaut, all Moog.. What more do you need?

I’ve recently started bookmarking all of my favorite guest music posts from you guys, for those days when there is nothing else I want to listen to and I need a dose of inspiration.
Herbie got me in such a creative mood. Keep up with these great posts guys!
