This guys playing is like 'marmite' .... you either love it or hate it, I love it personally :D

One thing is for sure ... his playing style helped to sell more Hammond X-66's to South American countries than to any other region of the world 8)

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That give me a good grounding. Cheers.

Hi Jon,

I'm pleased that you enjoyed this video Jon, the Hammond X-66 had a most unique and distinctive sound that made it easily recognizable over all other Hammond models, well maybe with the exception of the X-77, this was probably best demonstrated by two Dutch organists known as 'The Hammond Brothers'. I have been trying to locate further tracks of them together ... I did have a number of albums of theirs but as usual, with time, they have been mislaid or discarded :roll:

Sri Mike, not a style of playing that I have ever liked. But as you said, a bit like Marmite which I also do not enjoy :D

Regards,

Ron
