Keith Emerson of ELP dead at 71

Recommended Posts

Ouch. I absolutely love Tarkus and Karn Evil 9 (listened 44 and 27 times according to last.fm). Also From the Beginning because it was in City of Doom. Now I feel like checking out more songs.

Welcome back my friend, to the show that never ends...
Every time I check this forum there's always another obituary. This time it's somebody whose music I liked, so I'm commenting on it. Rest in piece...

Brain Salad Surgery was my favourite. I also was lucky to see them in Katowice personally (album "Live in Poland"). Sad and hard to believe he's gone.

Keith put a bullet in his head because he was suffering some degenerative nerve issue and couldn't play like he used to. Apparently some recent bad reviews and stressing out about a new tour really got to him.

A sad time for music. Some artists, like David Bowie, reinvent themselves. Keith reinvented music itself. Like Chris Squire who died last year, he was a musical pioneer and there are sounds in life we'll never hear again.
