Emerson, Lake & Palmer Legend GREG LAKE - RIP - December 7, 2016

Artist: 
 
London, UK - Legendary Greg Lake sadly passed away on Wed. Dec. 7th. As a founding member of King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Greg Lake has been a major force in music for over 40 years. He has long been considered a legendary voice and musical powerhouse whose impact changed the landscape of rock and roll. Many simply refer to him as 'The Voice'.
 
Greg was just finishing his autobiography titled 'Lucky Man', which is  scheduled for release in 2017.
 
Says his long time manger and friend Stewart Young, 'Yesterday, December 7th, I lost my best friend to a long and stubborn battle with cancer. Greg Lake will stay in my heart forever, as he has always been. Despite his illness which he knew to be terminal he always took the view about his life, career and family that he was indeed a lucky man... His family would be grateful for privacy during this time of their grief. Many thanks.'

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER “From the Beginning” Greg Lake, Carl Palmer’s Memories Of Keith Emerson

Artist: 

Dallas, TX July 26, 2016 -  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands  hosts Greg Lake and Carl Palmer of Progressive Rock’s first supergroup, Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

If you asked any followers of the white hot London music scene in 1969 to wager on who would emerge as the most innovative bandleader, the smart money would have been on  Jimmy Page’s Led Zeppelin, King Crimson’s Robert Fripp, and the featured soloist fronting a three piece called The Nice, the impressive keyboard player Keith Emerson. So when Emerson surprised everybody by announcing his departure in order to team up with King Crimson bassist, singer, songwriter Greg Lake and Crazy World of Arthur Brown/ Atomic Rooster percussionist Carl Palmer, the stage was set for “the maximum amount of music by the fewest musicians”, as Greg Lake tells us.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer elevated the progressive rock movement by taking the synthesizer out of the science lab and onto FM rock radio, where ultimately millions of listeners would respond in favor. “Lucky Man” from their debut may have been their most famous song, and their fourth album Brain Salad Surgery may have been their best seller, but 1972‘s Trilogy came at the high watermark of progressive rock’s quality and popularity, and has remained a favorite over years of changes in rock music.

The final curtain did indeed come down on “the show that never ends, my friends...” in March of this year with the sudden death of Keith Emerson. The keyboard maestro had been struggling with a repetitive stress injury in his right hand for almost twenty years, according to Carl Palmer. “In July 2010 we played the High Voltage Festival, one of the first Prog Rock festivals and I noticed that the standard we reached really wasn’t where we’d left off Keith understood immediately.. He’s a realist. He knew the game was up.”
