    ELP’s music did a lot to get me through a really rough year in my life. I’ll be forever grateful to them for that. I saw them live twice in the 90s and was blown away by both shows.

    First Keith Emerson, now Greg Lake. Has anybody checked in on Carl Palmer to see if he’s okay?

    It also occurred to me that the entire band that made the Emerson, Lake & Powell album in 1986 is now dead.

    Unsurprisingly very good remembrance from Sid Smith:

    I had to watch “The Giant Spider Invasion” after learning of Greg Lake’s passing.

    “Ooh, what a lucky man he was”

    “I Talk to the Wind” by King Crimson, the band Greg was in before ELP, was used as a riff in “Teenage Caveman”……..That starred the recently departed Robert Vaughn.

    Grim coincidences. :cry:

    One of the first albums I ever bought was “Trilogy” with “From the Beginning”. I bought every album after that. One of the best Christmas songs was written by Greg Lake “I Believe in Father Christmas”. It was released as a single, I think, but was also on the “Works Vol. 2” LP. You don’t hear it much, but it’s worth downloading. Too many gone this year. :-(
