A Statement From Greg Lake About Keith Emerson

A Statement From Greg Lake About Keith Emerson

To all ELP friends and fans all over the world, I would like to express my deep sadness upon hearing this tragic news. As you know Keith and I spent many of the best years of our lives together and to witness his life coming to an end in the way that it has is painful, both to myself and to all who knew him.

As sad and tragic as Keith’s death is, I would not want this to be the lasting memory people take away with them. What I will always remember about Keith Emerson was his remarkable talent as a musician and composer and his gift and passion to entertain. Music was his life and despite some of the difficulties he encountered I am sure that the music he created will live on forever.

My deepest condolences go to Keith’s family.

May he now be at peace.

Greg Lake

Keyboard Legend Keith Emerson To Release Early 1960’s Recordings on CD and Download!

London, UK – Due for release on the 6th November 2015 is the CD and download editions of long lost THE KEITH EMERSON TRIO recordings made in Keith’s parents’ living room when he was a teenager. These recordings come from one of only four acetates ever made!

These 7 tracks were previously been made available by Record Collection (in early 2015) as a limited edition vinyl release. This is the first time these recordings have been released on CD and download.

Of the CD and download editions, Keith Emerson said: “Well, we all have to start somewhere! I’m happy that Cherry Red is releasing my very earliest beginnings and I hope it will inspire future generations of musicians.”

Keith Emerson first found success with The Nice in the late 1960’s before going on to become a founding member of Emerson, Lake & Palmer in 1970. ELP were critically and commercially successful through much of the 1970’s, becoming one of the best-known progressive rock groups of the era. Emerson is widely regarded as one of the top keyboard players of the progressive rock era.
