  • RIP Greg Lake

    Inspired me to write a lot of music, and to reach beyond what was easy.

          ELP was the reason I got into music. Always thought Greg added that "something" that balanced the band. He will be missed.

            Although this has nothing to do with his death, that's a really good point and I hadn't thought about it in those terms. You had Keith the madman, Carl the spectacular but rock steady, and Greg gluing it together.

              I first 'discovered' Greg with King Crimson and his work with them, ELP and solo has always been first class. Thanks for the voice, bass and guitar contributions that my ears tickle.

              From the Beginning was one of the first songs I could actually pull off and impress with.
