Goodbye Keith Emerson

It has been somewhat fashionable to kick the stuffing out of Emerson, Lake & Palmer these days, but I have to admit that I still count myself as a fan. With the news of the death of Keith Emerson a true keyboard maestro has passed from the scene. I saw them twice, once in Springfield, and once in Hartford, and they really did put on a terrific show. Emerson was indeed the musical driving force behind ELP, and has left behind some really spectacular work. One of my favorites, from Brain Salad Surgery, is below. RIP, Keith Emerson.
