Box on Billy's piano

Hello,I noticed that Billy has always a box with buttons on the left hand side of his piano's keyboard during concerts. Anyone who knows what's the use of this device?Thanks for your answers!Take care!Emmanuel

    the box is what controls the piano as it spins around to face different sides of crowd

    Thanks for your answer, so fast! :)I'm not sure we're talking about the same box, as the box I'm talking about is on the piano, even when the piano doesn't spin around (for example: we can see the box in Live at BBC Television in 1978, where the piano doesn't move).To me, it looks like a control for Billy's speaker, or maybe a control for effects on the microphone. But as far as I know, I never saw such a box on other pianos.Anyways, thx again!

    They are used for his monitors on stage. The rotating and the key changes are controlled backstage.

    Thanks a lot!
  • Little late but Billy actually controls the rotations with a pedal beside his sustain pedal under the piano.
