2005. “Learn­ing Piano” with Pete Sears. DVD.

I release a three hour piano instruc­tion DVD for the “Icons of Rock” series. We shot it at “Hyde Street Stu­dios” on their white Yama­ha 6ft grand piano. It was the same stu­dio that I record­ed “Red Octo­pus” with Jef­fer­son Star­ship in 1975 when it was “Wal­ly Hei­der Stu­dios”. “Red Octo­pus” and its sin­gle “Mir­a­cles” both stayed in the num­ber one posi­tion on the Bill­board Charts for sev­er­al weeks in a row. I played piano and bass on “Mir­a­cles” while David Freiberg played B3 organ. I had the flu while we were record­ing this learn­ing piano DVD, so my voice get’s a bit croaky near the end (we shot it in one ten hour ses­sion), but the DVD was­n’t designed to enter­tain, and it has turned out to be effec­tive for peo­ple want­i­ng to get start­ed on the piano. From a rock musi­cians perspective.
