For all soreheads: Cozy Powell´s role was too marginal without doubt. Besides, this topic is about Emerson, Lake and Palmer.Wink

I voted for Greg Lake. He's one of the best voices of progressive rock.

 Keith Emerson is a keyboard virtuoso and a very good composer of prog. My second vote goes for Carl Palmer, very good drummer who composed almost all my favorite pieces on "Works Volume I and II" (Bullfrog) . 
Greg Lake is of course an expert of the bass but I sometimes don't  like his singing (already in "Cat Food" of KC), and especially his compositions after "Brain Salad Surgery" who pointed towards a more pop and less adventurous direction (Watching Over You, I Believe In Father Christmas, Nobody Loves You Like I Do) Unhappy.

Keith Emerson, just before Greg Lake. Emerson's virtuosity versus Lake's vocal abilities make this a difficult choice.

E - Keys - I play 'em all with ease

P -
Drums - listen here she comes

L -
Bass - playing in my face

On a side note I always thought the lyrics were :

'Drums listen as she cums'
'Keys a playin' on my knees'
'Two diamond tigers in the sky'

But that's a whole other thread Wink
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

Can't vote. Can't stand any of em now, they're shadows of their former selves. But when they were in their prime ... all three were great. Back then, I'd go for Lake because of his excellent and underrated bass playing as well as his marvelous voice. Which now sounds like saccharin.

Can't really vote for a favorite member. ELP were one of those bands where each contribution was integral to their formula, like Zep. In my opinion anyway. When Emerson & Lake recruited Powell, they were a different band, but not a bad one. I can't believe I gave the ELPowell album such a scathing review on here. I've been listening to it a lot lately, and my re-appraisal is at least 3 stars.

I guess Emerson was the musical backbone, but the music was brought to life by the other two. I've been on a bit of an ELP trip since seeing them live back in July. I've embraced them at last!
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I'm almost certain this poll has been done before LOL Either way, I'll give Lake the vote.  Just a great musician overall.

Emerson for his original vintage prog inventions and wonderful sounds and playing, but Lake comes close behind, because of his strong melodies, wonderful voice and imaginative lyrics.

Difficult. When they were in their prime, they were probably the best drummer, keyboard player and bass player of their time. Technically they are all equally great. So I'll decide after my own interests. When I listen to music, the thing I listen to first is the rhythm and the drums. So I'll vote for Palmer.

Greg Lake - he´s bassist, guitarist, singer and songwriter.
Emerson plays, what I know, on keyboards only (and  he´s composer too).

Palmer was the most talented and least pretentious, so CP by a long shot.

I'm guessing Maths was not your strong point at schoolWink
 
Growing up I would say Keith Emerson was my hero. However I have to say that ELP would have been nothing without Carl Palmer. This is absolutely extraordinary. Keyboard hi jinks and great nifty bass work but Palmer underpins with a ferocity and control on the kit that is unmatched.
