A former member of The Nice and one of the founding members of Emerson Lake & Palmer, Keith Emerson was widely regarded as one of the top keyboard players of the progressive rock era. He tragically committed suicide in March 2016.
Paying tribute to his friend and former ELP bandmate, Greg Lake released a statement saying "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."
