There are lots of keyboard parts on Shades – piano, strings, you name it - lots of layers building throughout the song.  Everybody was a keyboardist when it came time to color it, and everybody had great ideas. I loaded my keyboard with all kinds of sounds to choose from, and we all took turns calling out ideas, and I played them all.  It took a long time to record the keyboard parts, but it was a lot of fun.  - Johnny
