Paul and Berry Gordy Play Restored Motown Piano

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

The 1877 Steinway grand piano used on so many classic Motown recordings has been restored to playing--and recording--quality, thanks to Paul McCartney, who along with Motown founder Berry Gordy, played the piano at a fundraising gala in New York City.  Paul had told Motown Museum officials last summer than he wanted to help with the restoration when he learned the instrument could no longer be played. It took Steinway techs months to restore the 9-foot piano to its former glory. McCartney & Gordy played the Motown/Beatles classic, "Money (That's What I Want)", as well as "Hey Jude" and "Lady Madonna".
