American singer, musician, and songwriter from Williamsburg Virginia. Quite possibly the greatest piano player in the history of time, Hornsby and his band 'the Range' had several top 5 hits in the late 80's including "Mandolin Rain", "the Valley Road", and Hornsby's signature song, "the Way It Is". Hornsby made over 100 on stage appearances with the Greatful Dead. He has also played piano on several songs by different artists, including Don Henley's "End of the Innocence".
Man, I would let David Beckham kick me square in the nuts to play the piano like Bruce Hornsby.

A pejorative term for a white person who does something that is outdone or done better by a black person. Based upon the 80s piano rocker Bruce Hornsby, who scored a hit with the song "The Way It Is" which was later sampled and practically re-created by 2Pac years later.
