Dead at 71.  One of the great keyboardists of rock.

First time I heard a Moog.

Heard them live in San Antonio in 1971.

Not sure how many times I tripped to this one:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If2akTqCML4

The old school is heading to the grave yard in ever increasing numbers  :(

I think I must be near the point where more than half of my music is by dead guys.

This Emerson wasn't one of them though.

I have one greatest hits album of E.L.P. Only like 2 tracks on it ("Lucky Man" and "Fanfare for the Common Man"). So for me it not so much of a great loss.

One of the local stations here in Detroit (Classic Rock type) has been playing ELP non-stop in his honor.

But man Bruce, I haven't heard this song in a long, long time. Wow! Did that bring back some memories.

“Our Father who art in nature, who has given the gift of survival to the coyote, the common brown rat, the English sparrow, the house fly and the moth, must have a great and overwhelming love for no-goods and blots-on-the-town and bums, and Mack and the boys. Virtues and graces and laziness and zest. Our Father who art in nature.”
― John Steinbeck
