Yes, I wasn't sure to start it as it seems to be buried a bit. Had to check his web site to be sure.
Another sad loss - great vocalist and bass player, only one of ELP left now.

Thank you for your work in ELP and King Crimson. I hope now your work will be reevaluated by people.

A really excellent vocalist, great bass player and, by all accounts, a realy nice guy.

RIP. This year has been terrible for the prog world in terms of those we've lost.

Absolutely gutted hearing this new.  9 months after Keith Emerson passed away.  This has been the worst year for celebrity deaths.
RIP Greg Lake Cry

^^If it could get remixed with a Kendrick Lamar guest rap it might work. Funny enough though, I've heard that song in public more than probably the rest of the ELP catalog combined. The power of Christmas..

Man this sucks, I suppose I should play "Epitaph" at some point today. Take care Carl Palmer...and stay indoors.

What a stellar musician and great man he was. A legend. It's such a shame to have 2/3 of ELP gone in one year. 2016 really is a terrible year.
Categories strain, crack and sometimes break, under their burden - step out of the space provided.
