Keith Emerson RIP

Recommended Posts

Sad to hear of the death of Keith Emerson at the age of 71. Probably best known as the keyboard player in Emerson, Lake & Palmer, but I first encountered him when he played in the prog rock group The Nice when they played in the Newcastle Jazz festivals in the late sixties early seventies. A superb keyboard player, classically trained which probably explains his adaptations of several classical pieces.

First I've heard of this Bayardm, I saw them at the City Hall in 68-69  with Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Move,  Amen Corner, and Heir Apparent ...Am I getting old?

Only externally, but youthful memories

Another sad loss in the music industry.

His playing and musicianship are shown to be incredible in the empty stadium on "Fanfare for the common man"..[as are his fellow musicians!]

I'm an old-fashioned "whistler",always have been,and this tune is constantly destroyed by my feeble attempts to whistle it,usually when I am in the garden.....

R.I.P. Keith.
