I don't have enough for a Top Ten list, but I'm surprised there hasn't been any mention of John Tout of Renaissance. Actually even his predecessor in the band (John Hawken) might be worthy of a mention.

Think he can be forgotten because he is not really in a band noted for it's keyboard intricacies, but the sounds he creates are amazing. Duchess, what a tune, and incredible keyboard sound.
