Guy puts a Jerry Lee Lewis hurting on a piano in an airport terminal.

“Rock on brother. Make them keys beg for mercy.”
Great balls of fire!
Comment from the link...
“there are many more videos under the search phrase “Play me I’m yours” on that ‘other’ website.”
Bravo, youngen, Bravo!
excellent, you could tell he loved to play.
It might be a public piano but he absolutely owned it.
That was pretty good ole son now have a seat and I’ll show you how it’s done.
How on earth could people just stand around as if this isn’t happening? Unconscious.....
I liked how that stone-faced guy in the foreground finally turned around and looked, and then smiled.
What’s the song he is playing?
For some reason that video put me in mind of this all-time classic:
D@MN,just D@MN! That is some serious skill.
Wow. Just fantastic!!!
Beat me daddy, eight to the bar!
Any “Wallender” fans out there? Here is the theme song by Emily Barker and Red Clay Halo.
Is it “Roll Over Beethoven” ?
No kidding...never saw that many deaf people in an airport at one time before...
Harry “The Hipster” Gibson...
Meade Lux Lewis...
It is very much in the style of Johan Blohm. Below is a clip of Blohm's boogie. - Tom
It is in fact “Roll over Beethoven”
Boogie Woogie Piano
Johan Blohm from The Refreshments
I can’t find the same LiveLeak video on GoogTube so I hope someone can post it.

There did seem to be a number of people who stopped to listen, take pictures and such. To be fair some of them might not have realized that he wasnt a paid entertainer, just a fellow traveler. There were a good many who walked by but they might have had flights to catch, didnt have the time to stop and listen. On my last trip, after a 12 hour flight and needing to make a connecting flight on the other side of the terminal, which I almost missed thanks to TSA, I would not have stopped even if the guy was playing with his feet, had a monkey on his head and the piano was literally on fire, although I would have been tempted and probably would have managed a jetlagged smile of some sort.
Awesome...just plain awesome. I’m tired of guitar pyrotechnics...I love seeing a piano virtuoso..
A very fitting .gif!
This guy is fantastic....I love piano wizardry, no matter what the musical genre...I even used to really dig seeing those old Marx Brothers movies when Chico would tickle the ivories...just love it!
He must have had lessons.
I don’t think so.
What a tough crowd, could barely get a smile out of most of those folks on camera, loved the applause at the end though.
Wow. That piano was smokin’! Amazing!
Wonder which airport this was....where most passed right by, not even paying attention to this.
Roll over Beethoven.
I dont think so.

“Play me, I’m yours!” — Love it!
Yes, very sick of guitar.
No one even knows how to play a true bass! Another guitar fake!
Nope. Good, but not the same.
His is playing “Roll over Beethoven” for those that are interested.
“Henri Herbert, keyboard player with the Jim Jones Revue, gives an impromptu performance on the concourse of St Pancras International station, London.”
It is a gift to be able to play like this. This seems to be a foreign airport, so I think it is cultural that most of the people are not seeming to appreciate this music, which is very American in its roots.
At first I thought it might be just a video with audio taken from a professional recording laid on top. But it’s obvious you couldn’t fake banging those keys like that.
Holy Mother of God. If I was in an airport terminal and that guy sat down and played the piano like that, I’d listen all day long and pray the plane never came. That is some seriously mad skills.
I’d love to see this guy walk into a Nordstrom store and play this. They’d probably kick him out for doing so.
This is the type of music they normally played there until they laid off the piano players. Now the pianos sits alone and quiet.
