Another Legend Lost - Keith Emerson, you will be sorely missed. RIP

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

Each time one of my favorite musicians passes a piece of my rythym dies along with them. I never forget their tunes or tone or lyric but a stumble is added into the memory which is like a scratch on a vinyl LP. They're not supposed to be heard yet become an integral part of your collection. Many albums have scratches which can be digitally removed but some tell a story of what led to its existence in my collection. Emerson, Lake & Palmer holds a unique position for progressive style and I wanted to share an often heard introduction which lets you know they're about to begin. A tradition long lived for ELP concert goers. ENJOY!

That was certainly a walk down memory lane - when we had three channels and only black and white and big stars were on the little screen. Thanks for the memories! EL&P were such a part of my high school years. Hope you're well.

Keith Emerson may be gone . . . . but he is not forgotten.

Good luck and success.

Hi Kevin.  Yes, he will be missed.  Though, many of my co-workers are too young to remember him.

I saw ELP live in Chicago in 1977 and can remember the concert like it was yesterday. What a show, the encore was "Lucky Man".

Vinyl itself holds precious memories for me.  And yes so many of the artists I grew up loving are gone now.

Kevin- I came across your post and was thinking of the recent loss of Prince, whom I liked but really liked ELP.
