On the very first day of the New Year, Gerald McCauley met up with Soundcheck host John Schaefer. As one of the authors of Down the Rhodes: The Fender Rhodes Story (along with Benjamin Bove), Gerald has a lot to say about the history of this powerful and revolutionary instrument!

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book The Fender Rhodes Story is a historical tribute to the electric piano that changed the sound of music. Invented by Harold Rhodes as a rehabilitation tool for soldiers in World War II, the Fender Rhodes piano both revolutionized and empowered musicians to explore a new, electric frontier of music. Through interviews with a remarkable cast of music notables, the book takes an insider's look into how this electric piano played – and continues to play – an integral role in the creation of a wealth of music, from the 1960s through today.
