    Rod Miller - my second favorite musical Rod, second only to Rod Stewart.

    I think he is a friend of one of my family friends.

    So far, I've seen all three out of the four pianists at Disneyland. Johnny, Eric, and Alan. I'm pretty sure that Eric and Alan could recognize me now. I was with them for quite a while on Saturday and the Saturday before that. Up next, Rod.

    Have you ever seen Scott Shields? The guy is like a toothpick. But he has a rubber arm. So that's OK by me!

    To get back on subject. I miss Rod. I hope he is recovering well and makes it back to the place he loves most.

    That's too bad about the nerve being on his right leg. If it had only been on his left, his piano playing wouldn't have suffered as much. The "soft pedal" isn't used much. But the sustain pedal is so incredibly useful. As a piano player myselft, I'm addicted to it.

    I'm glad to hear he'll be back, though. He's such a skilled musician, and so much fun to watch and hear.

    Re: Rod Miller ?

    I was wondering how Rod's progress was getting along.
    Who is the young guy that studied under him and played with him?
    I saw him a couple of weeks ago on Saturday. I love the both of them.

    tmom: that would be Alan. They don't play together any more, but they did record an album, which I believe is available in the music shop on main street.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I wish he'd give piano lessons. He has one of my dream jobs...

    Piano lessons from him would be...the ultimate.

    Update on Rod: The arms are just fine and dandy, it's the leg that's holding him back. It is still slowly getting better, but he can't sit down and play flat-out for more than "a couple of hours" (*) before he has to stop playing and rest, stretch it out, whatever it needs...

    (* = Disclaimer: I know the range numbers he told me, but I'm treating it with a little confidence. Therefore, I am deliberately NOT releasing any exact figures in any public forums, so you'll just have to accept that as a very rough and ambiguous number.)

    Of course, anyone who knows his usual playing style and speed can see that it's a real aerobic workout, even when it looks like he's just sitting there on a stool. Rod's just so darned good that he makes it look easy.

    Oh, Murphy: If you want lessons from Rod it is possible, but you have to convince him you'll work your tuchis off (3 hours a day practice bare minimum) and you are really serious about becoming a pro-level pianist.

    The last person who managed to do that was Alan, and it took a whole lot of convincing. But as you can see, hard work and persistence pays off.

    I remember taking my tape recorder to the park in the late 70's, early 80's and taped him playing a bunch of his music. It was awesome. I still have the tape to this day and should get it burned to a cd to preserve this fantastic moment for me. I also went to his house with a friend to listen to him playing his piano at home. He is a great guy.
