Keytar: Back from the 80’s

Everywhere I look the keytar is popping up in bands. This crazy 1980’s instrument has been revived. I hope nothing else from the 80’s comes back like leg warmers. YUCK! Anyway I love the keytar and love seeing it in todays music. Bands like Family Force 5, Worth Dying For (my new favorite band), DCB*, and Mute Math are showcasing this thing. Boy I wish I had one.

Anybody else? like it? Want one?

  1. Dude I had one and I am kicking myself for getting rid of it. I played it for about half our set when I was in a band in high school.

    It rocked!

    Of course back then, I played it cause Petra used one 🙂

  2. I believe it takes a certain amount of integrity to rock the keytar – not just anyone can do it.

    Joel, I think you could pull it off.

    btw – worth dying for = great stuff.

  3. Our keyboard player, Rod, has one that he uses every few weeks. He even bought a wireless pak for it.

    It’s kind of funny to watch him. He’s so used to standing in one place that he tends to roam the entire stage!

  4. Hey this is Worth Dying For – Thanks for representing the keytar! We are also bringing back the 80’s sunglasses!
