The passing of Greg Lake ... :-(

Post by HookedOnSonics » Thu Dec 08, 2016 3:53 pm

Greg Lake, a singer and multi-instrumentalist who helped propel prog rock into the mainstream as a member of Emerson, Lake and Palmer and King Crimson, died Tuesday. His manager told the BBC he had recently had "a long and stubborn battle with cancer"; the news comes nine months after the death of his bandmate, Keith Emerson. He was 69.

Greatly saddened by this news. I only learned of Greg's death from Rick Wakeman's tweet this morning. Greg was a great guy and a huge talent.

2016 has been a horrible year - so many losses of musical legends who I thought would go on forever.

I hope 2017 will be kinder.
