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.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
