I hope he's now found peace. Sad.
For me it was the "Emerson, Lake and Palmer" album
RIP Mr. Emerson, and thanks for the memories.
Man, the happenings of these last couple months makes one look closer at one's own mortality.
Rough news indeed. Thoughts go to Keith's friends and family.
As a young prog nerd, I was well aware of ELP by the time California Jam came around in 1974, but seeing them on television was something else entirely. I was definitely not ready for flying piano. I'm so glad I had the chance to witness ELP at the height of their powers at the Omni in Atlanta.
There is some astounding and beautiful music on the Works volumes.
Keith and Rick Wakeman got me interested in MOOGs, of which mine are sadly long gone.
RIP Keith, and thanks for the memories and the music.
RIP very sad. I remember the first time I saw them, ELP, in the 70s. His synthesizer took up an enormous part of the stage. It was the biggest set of electronics on a stage I have seen. Saw them in California later on. His keyboards and their music always have been some of my favorites. I guess he was facing the thought of not being able to play like he was accustomed any more. Just horrible news lately of these excellent musicians passing away.
Such utterly sad news. All we can do is celebrate the wonderful music of the man and ELP. RIP Keith. Thanks for your inspiring music.
RIP Mr. Emerson. Karn Evil 9 changed the way in which I viewed rock music.
2016 looks like it's gonna be hard on musicians.
Dang, a rough way to go. Think of the person who discovered him.
Boring music lessons at my (German) school in the late 1970s ...
ELP made them thrilling (Pictures at an Exhibition).
Thank you Keith for such great music and breaking the walls between Classics and Rock music.
Since then I know, that Beethoven was a rocker who was born too early for a Moog or electric guitars ...
Ruhe in Frieden ... (RIP)
Yeah buddy, it's not easy no matter what the perspective. A thread from awhile back:
A gentle person. One who lived a life of kindness but a life with demons that he couldn't escape. Sad indeed.
Saw on FB this morning that his death has, in fact, been ruled a suicide. Really sad.
I started this thread, but I am only now seeing the news on the cause of death… so tragic. Poor guy.
I was a big fan of The Nice. In fact, listening to "For Example" the first time on the radio was an ear-opening experience. It's still a cornerstone in my musical mindset (14:50):
I loved The Nice in High school and saw them in a small club on Yonge Street .
Must of been in the late 60's
It's not the fiddle-faddle so much as the twiddly bits.
I couldn't resist typing that sentence, but it doesn't represent my feelings about music.
A condensed version of Pictures that is not the usual version and is stunning...
A much better description than mine.
(Keith was a lovely person to talk to BTW and, unsurprisingly, really knew his s*** when it came to his Moog. He seemed to know what every patch combination would do.)
I don't have to like the music to like the person. I mean, Ritchie Blackmore was a bit of a t**t but his music was awesome.
