Emerson, Lake & Palmer were formed in 1970 by the brilliant keyboard virtuoso Keith Emerson, gifted singer / composer / guitarist Greg Lake and dynamic drummer / percussionist Carl Palmer. Torchbearers of the progressive rock sound, ELP jointly created the super-group concept and are among the most important bands in the history of rock music. ELP were one the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970s, their first 7 albums reaching U.K. Top 10 and U.S. Top 20. Despite the tragic deaths of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake in 2016, their amazing and inspirational music very much lives on.
