Let's not forget the ARP2600 that Edgar Winter turned into a keytar in 1973 with Frankenstein. A synth not intended for that use.

Also another butchered synth: Jan Hammer had his Minimoog cut in half (eek!) so he could wear the keyboard separate from the control panel.

The fact is that keytars allow the audience to see the hands playing the keyboards. It has been said that watching someone play keyboards is about as interesting as watching someone do ironing... we need all the attention we can get.

I wish that Roland would reintroduce the AX1 -- with a sparkle finish and on-board MIDI wireless. I miss my old AX-1B...
