RIP Keith Emerson

Keyboard virtuoso and one third of Emerson Lake & Palmer. Theirs was never my sort of music but in the early 70s, ELP were one of biggest bands in the world. I don’t own a copy of Trilogy, Tarkus or Brian Salad Surgery because Prog Rock is like a language I can neither speak nor understand. But Keith Emerson, in his pomp, playing banks of Moog synthesisers was apparently a fantastic live performer. And had I been in the huge arena when he opened the show with this, I may well have become a convert.
