    Of course there is.

    Try listening to classic rock bands like Deep Purple, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, ELP, Yes, Small Faces, The Animals, Iron Butterfly, etc...

    The Hammond B-3 is being used in most hippy rock bands nowadays.

    Wally, Take a quick google (YouTube) search under Virgil Fox, live at Fillmore East. and especially watch the clip with Joe's Light Show. That is the heavy organ at it's very best.

    Samples are being used, I'm not aware of real organs being used for modern music since ages.

    Most bands are using "clone wheel" organs which accurately emulate the Hammond B3 (and also the Vox Continental & Farfisa Compact) and don't need a fork lift truck to load on stage every night. :)

    Listen to "I'm Okay" by Styx. The solo (and it's a genuine solo) is played on an actual pipe organ. So awesome.

    You really should go to some shows then. Almost every show I go to the band has a Hammond B-3.

    And I know a lot of bands. Trust me.

    Go to jambands.com. Almost every band listed on that website uses one.
    ;)

    I was just thinking of late, that we hadn't had a 'waloshin' thread for a while.

    Son, you need a hobby. ;)

    Well, less confusing for certain.

    WTF would you even do that? :confused: (See response to the first quote.) :p

    The Doors had some superb songs which featured organ music, the classic "Light My Fire" comes to mind.

    I'm pretty certain that The Stranglers - especially some of their early stuff made impressive use of organ music, for example, the songs, (or tunes) 'No More Heroes', (listen to the instrumental section), 'Waltzinblack', 'No More Heroes' and so on.

    Ray Manzarek of the Doors passed away yesterday (May 20th) of cancer. He was 74. Very depressing :(
