    I was just listening to them on XM a couple of hours ago. Another special talent gone. RIP Keith.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    They certainly made a huge mark on the music scene.

    (as an aside, every time I see your screen name I think of Wendy O. Williams (Plasmatics) for some reason)

    This was the only song of theirs I really could stomach -- conventional structure etc. Emerson freak-out at about 3:25 on put their stamp on it though.

    Oh no, I just read the news. I really loved their music, especially because Keith Emerson was such a fantastic keyboardist. Apparent suicide, and his girlfriend found him. It's sad.

    Fly Free Keith!

    After discovering the Hammond and Moog in his teenage years, Emerson grew into one of the greatest keyboardists of his generation, first as a member of the Nice before founding the prog supergroup Emerson, Lake and Palmer. ELP formed in 1970 after Emerson, guitarist Greg Lake (formerly of King Crimson) and drummer Carl Palmer, a veteran of the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, joined together for a project that would better showcase their musicianship.

    In addition to his time with ELP, Emerson also enjoyed a long musical career that featured both solo albums and film scores, including Dario Argento's 1980 horror film Inferno and the 1981 Sylvester Stallone thriller Nighthawks.
