The Organist at the Piano

In St. John's Church, where Warren Hastings led the expansion of British East India Company from (around 1770), there is a famous Scottish organ that is only played by one organist in all of Kolkata. Johnny Purty is the guy. We chatted with him and he told some great stories about visitors to the church. Sitting down at the piano to play the first chords of "You're as Cold as Ice", he talked about a member of the band Foreigner making a visit and playing their music. It's not all hymns in this church!
