We have to acknowledge the passing of another great musician and performer. Greg Lake passed away last Tuesday after a long struggle with cancer. He was 69. Just nine months ago we lost his bandmate Keith Emerson. 2016 has been a cruel year.
Greg Lake…Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and King Crimson…he was a driving force behind two of my favorite prog rock bands. Not only a master multi-instrumentalist, but a superb vocalist.
Since it’s December I’m going to post one of my favorite Christmas songs, this one Greg Lake did as a solo in 1975, “I Believe in Father Christmas.” RIP Greg…if I listen hard enough, I believe I can hear you singing in the heavenly choir.
