        What a terrible four months for talent falling by the wayside

        Emerson Lake And Palmer. Always uttered by me in the same breath as Pink Floyd, E.L.O, 10.cc, Moody Blues etc, if in conversation with anyone about the music I rate. Indeed, they are second on my 'About Me' Favourite Music: list in my profile page

        R.I.P Keith!

        ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
        All human ills he can subdue,
        Or with a bauble or medal
        Can win mans heart for you;
        And many a blessing know to stew
        To make a megloamaniac bright;
        Give honour to the dainty Corse,
        The Pixie is a little shite.

          People are getting older. The pace of people dying will pick up and that sucks!

            Yup! The talented replaced in the living by the talent-less.

              This one didn't need to move on. He shot himself.

                ... was 71 years old, he was suffering with a degenerative nerve disease for over 20 years and was unable to play; he was a sick man and chose the day of his passing:

                No money could save him
                So he laid down and he died

                Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

                He had a gift, and left us with some amazing music, I'm thankful and celebrate his life, and mourn his loss.

                  I'm in two minds about Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

                  While I initially liked their version of, "Fanfare for the Common Man," it got a bit much hearing it every night, as the theme for, "Reporting Scotland."

                  Every time I hear it, I still expect Jackie Birdbrain to walk in.

                    Good post. If that was truly how it was, a man in his right mind making a tough choice, then I would have to honor that. I hope that's what it was.

                    Edit: His nerve disease issue was well known, I've read about other pain issues.

                          I saw ELP in 1974 during the Brain Salad Surgery tour; ah, the quadrophonic sound system. What a treat and what a memory; Greg Lake in a white suit standing on a Persian carpet, Carl Palmer and what was probably the first polyphonic drum kit (wow!), and Keith Emerson doing loops on an a Steinway grand piano. The bands back then knew how to put on a show that the audience hoped would last all night and ELP was no exception. RIP Keith, guys like you and ELP have no equivalent in this age of auto-tune, drum machines and shameless commercialism set to the lowest common denominator. I will think of you every time that I pick up my bass.
