RIP Greg Lake, November 10, 1947 – December 7, 2016

Keith Emerson died earlier this year.

Greg Lake died on December 7th after “a stubborn battle with cancer“.

One of my favorite musicians, he was a genius song-writer. His music and work with both King Crimson and Emerson, Lake, & Palmer was really amazing. He deserves way more accolades than he gets in the music world.

RIP, Greg Lake.

    I believe you meant “died last night” or another word. I would hate to think Carl Palmer died too.

    (Quick check -- nope *whew*)

    For those who weren’t fans and don’t know, Emerson (who died in March) did not have the same cause of death as Lake. I can’t say any more and be impassive.

    Thanks for catching that, Intransitive. Also, that’s why I didn’t say how Keith died. That makes me livid. Fucking pathetic trolls…

    For everyone… I did a bunch of posts on my Facebook page about Keith Emerson after he died. I never blogged about it, though, because of why he died.

    So I’ll be doing a memorial post for both Keith and Greg in the near future.

    Hopefully Carl Palmer will be around for a long time so I don’t have to do a full ELP memorial post…
