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.

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.

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
