Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake & Palmer fame (also of The Nice) died last night. Last I heard we don’t know what happened, but the world has lost yet another gigantic talent.
When it came to keyboard players, for me it was a toss up between Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman, with Tony Banks and probably Jon Lord coming in a close second. His skill level as a performer (show off), arranger, composer, and overall musician can never, ever be overstated. Rest in Peace Keith Emerson.
