Greg Lake – 10 Nov 1947 – 7 Dec 2016

As I said on March 11 this year., “There’s hardly a week goes by these days without a part creator of my music library leaving us”; well here we go again… this time it’s Greg Lake who, yesterday, lost his fight with cancer.

I’m pretty sure most people reading this realise that Greg found fame in King Crimson and went on to form ELP with Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer.

For anyone who’s never heard Greg’s voice or guitar playing, I recommend starting with “Lucky Man“, “C’est La Vie“, “Take a Pebble” or my favourite of all “From the Beginning” although I guess, at this time of year, I should also include “I Believe in Father Christmas“.

Again, gone but not forgotten, thanks Greg.
