Lionel Richie Schools Luke Bryan On Piano, Music, Life
A lot of people are really hyped up for Katy Perry’s stint as a judge on American Idol. Now, don’t get me wrong, I think Katy Perry is fine. I’m not that familiar with Luke Bryan’s work because I’ve been out of the South for over a decade. But Lionel Richie, that guy I know. He’s the one I’m waiting to teach these young folks how it’s done.
Along with the Salsa and Cuban music that played a lot in my house growing up, there was also a lot of 70’s soul music like the Commodores. That’s the band that Lionel got his start in. Later, when I was a kid in the 80’s, I saw him dance on the ceiling and have a blind girl sculpt his bust out of clay on TV. What?! That’s amazing. The guy can literally perform miracles.
In this video he tries to teach Luke Bryan how playing the piano is done. I mean, Luke can play the piano but he can’t PLAY the piano like Lionel. Katy looks on in awe.
