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.

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.

    • A festive operation aimed at tackling crime and disorder in Sunderland city centre has been hailed a success after crime rates plummeted by 16%.
      Business leaders on Wearside joined Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Kim McGuinness in praising the impact of Operation Kraken after the initiative led to a significant drop in recorded crime.
      Spearheaded by Sergeant Maria Ord and the city centre neighbourhood team, the annual festive crackdown was again run in partnership with the Bridges and Sunderland Business Improvement District (BID), along with Sunderland City Council.
      From November 25 through until Christmas Eve, the initiative saw uniformed and plain-clothed officers target all city centre criminality, specifically adult anti-social behaviour and retail-related offences.
      Now, after the 2019 Kraken operation showed a 16% decrease in city centre crime compared to the previous year, Sgt Ord hopes to build on those successes in the coming months.
      "We are delighted with how Operation Kraken went," Sgt Ord said. "The initiative was about maintaining a hassle-free and safe environment which allowed families to enjoy everything this city has to offer during the lead-up to Christmas.
