"Roger Williams, or Mr. Piano as he was often known, had a lucrative career that spanned decades. He knew 10,000 songs by heart; he had 21 gold and platinum records. He was also a Steinway Artist and he was extremely proud of it. He was the first (and so far) is the only artist to receive the Steinway Lifetime Achievement Award, and he was featured at Carnegie Hall for Steinway’s 150th Anniversary. Roger Williams is still the only artist to have a series of pianos named after him by Steinway. He toured with his Limited Edition Gold Piano. Reader’s Digest puts it this way, 'Roger Williams is undeniably one of the greatest pianist of the Twentieth Century. His illustrious career in music is unparalleled.'"
