Keane member's 800 strong keyboard hoard

Piano player stashes them in his barn!
Three members of Keane.
Speaking in a newspaper interview this week, a member of the band Keane has made a light-hearted comment about having an 800-strong keyboard hoard.

The group's Tim Rice-Oxley has told the Telegraph that “about 800” of the musical instruments are stashed in his barn!

Keane are behind a number of hit singles such as Is It Any Wonder, Somewhere Only We Know and Bed shaped. Alongside Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes, Jesse Quin and Tom Chaplin are also members.

The band will be playing shows in Manchester and Leeds next month.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Tom Chaplin, the crooner for the group, has also said that while he's a fan of Chris Martin's band, in his opinion Rice-Oxley has the edge over Coldplay when it comes to penning songs.

Piano player Rice-Oxley has also given an insight into the British group's newest LP - set to appear next month - in the interview.

He described it as containing "personal, emotional songs with an epic feel built around piano and Tom [Chaplin's] soaring voice".
