Chris playing keytar

#1 Post by Dog »

I do like it when Chris plays keytar, as per the new Funko Pop design. But how many times has he performed with one? Here are my memories:

Domino dancing TV performances, while wearing shorts

Large chunks of the Performance show including It’s a sin, What have I done to deserve this? and How can you expect to be taken seriously?

Monkey business TV performances

Surely I’m missing some?

I haven't read the post, just the title but I'm assuming this is about the Pop Vinyl and questioning why he has a keytar.
Yes it's not the main way of performing, but it's not too out of character.
You know me, I like pictures. Here are 3 performances off the top of my head where he uses a keytar.

I imagine having the figurine hold a keytar is the only practical way of doing it.

I agree, the keytar makes complete sense in the context of the Funko Pop.

I do like it when Chris actually plays music onstage. I wonder if on any of these keytar occasions the thing was actually connected to the sound system and so was able to produce sound when the keys were pressed.

Ah, yes, you’re right. That’s another instance then.

Let us not forget the time he was performing Domino Dancing for a TV show (German?) and dropped the keytar! The clip’s on YouTube somewhere.

Just done a hunt and not found it yet but did find this - I didn’t know they’d ever performed I’m not scared on TV.

Do you think they're miming to the seven inch edit from that ultra rare 3 x 7" Introspective set here? Would love a digital release of those edits one day soon...

Yes, it seems that way.

i seriously doubt it. he's even said numerous times that it doesn't matter how often he plays a song, he can never remember the parts. hence why he started using sheet music back in 2002(the same time he started to play live), then later computer monitors to display the written music.
