Thanks for the memories and the hearing loss.

NO! Another great of my miss spent youth. Brain Salad Surgery and Tarkus were two seminal albums. Nothing lasts forever and thank you for the music.

Great stuff. ELP was a favorite of mine and a part of the soundtrack of my life.

Gone to the big concert in the sky…Rock On!!!

RIP and thanks.

Keyboard phenomenon and great showman as well as a composer of talent. ELP were a major force and a source background music clips that TV stations relied on for dramatic effect for years.

Stadium rockers of over the top dimensions and some fabulous tunes that covered a whole range of emotions.

If you are a real old git (like me) you will also have fond memories of pre ELP days in smaller smoke filled clubs and being pinned against the wall by the volume of The Nice with Keith hammering out "America" on the Hammond organ while jamming a knife into the keyboard to hold down notes for sustain and feedback!

Great days!

Thanks for all the great tunes Keith!

ELP was the first concert I ever attended way back in the 70s. I still have the ticket stub along with all the others in a box stashed away somewhere. Great, great music.

It's sad to see so many talented musicians passing this year. R.I.P.

May you find peace. Really enjoyed "KarnEval #9"

Just by way of appreciation, it's well worth digging around on You Tube to hear some of the orchestral arrangements of ELP numbers, most fit like a glove!

Like "Fanfare For The Common Man" or "Hoedown"(based on "Bonaparte's Retreat"),and "Jerusalem".
