Some of the many KEITH EMERSON stories and tributes below. Personally, I'm running out of words to come up with for each time we have to morn the passing of another legend. R.I.P Keith.
 
"We regret to announce that Keith Emerson died during the night of 10th/11th March 2016 at his home in Santa Monica, California, aged 71.
Greg Lake and Carl Palmer have made personal statements (see www.keithemerson.com). These statements can also be read on the ELP Facebook page where messages of condolences can be left: Facebook.com/EmersonLakePalmer

To all ELP friends and fans all over the world, I would like to express my deep sadness upon hearing this tragic news. As you know Keith and I spent many of the best years of our lives together and to witness his life coming to an end in the way that it has is painful, both to myself and to all who knew him.

As sad and tragic as Keith’s death is, I would not want this to be the lasting memory people take away with them. What I will always remember about Keith Emerson was his remarkable talent as a musician and composer and his gift and passion to entertain. Music was his life and despite some of the difficulties he encountered I am sure that the music he created will live on forever.

My deepest condolences go to Keith’s family.

May he now be at peace.

Greg Lake
