Keith Emerson

Throughout his career with the Nice, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and as a solo artist, Keith Emerson proved himself perhaps the greatest, most technically accomplished keyboardist in rock history. For all his reputation as an innovator and master of classically influenced rock, Emerson began his career playing R&B; the Nice got their first big break backing soul singer P.P. Arnold in 1967. Independently of Arnold, the Nice carved out a niche in the fledgling prog rock movement, with Emerson's classical flourishes and flamboyant showmanship (flinging knives at his keyboard, etc.) leading the way. After the Nice's dissolution, Emerson fleshed out his musical ideas to their fullest with Emerson, Lake & Palmer, which debuted in 1970 and had a series of highly successful albums throughout the decade.

Emerson made his solo debut in 1976 with the single "Honky Tonk Train Blues," which hit the U.K. Top 30, but did not pursue a solo career in earnest until after ELP's 1980 breakup. Emerson first scored the films The Inferno (1980) and Nighthawks (1981), but did not return until 1985, when he released Honky. The year 1986 found Emerson participating in a revamped ELP -- this time with drummer Cozy Powell -- but still finding time to record the solo LP Murderock. In 1987, Emerson released Harmageddon/China Free Fall, and the following year, he undertook a project with Carl Palmer and songwriter Robert Berry. Emerson, Lake & Palmer reunited in 1992 to record new material and tour, but when this venture proved less successful than hoped, Emerson announced his retirement from the music business in 1994.

That retirement was short-lived, though, as Emerson went on to release the occasional collection of new material or appear on-stage. He even reunited with Nice bandmates Brian Davison and Lee Jackson for a show in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2002 (Vivacitas). He penned an autobiography, Pictures of an Exhibitionist, in 2004, and received the compilation treatment from Castle Records in 2005 with the two-disc Hammer It Out: The Anthology. In 2010, Emerson released a live set entitled Moscow, featuring his road band with vocalist Marc Bonilla; its program consisted of everything from ELP tracks and soundtrack selections to tunes by the Nice. Bonilla and Terje Mikkelsen received guest billing on a 2012 studio album titled The Three Fates Project. Two years later, Emerson released Live from Manticore Hall, including material from a series of 2010 live dates with Greg Lake where the pair revisited several ELP classics. Keith Emerson died on March 10, 2016 at his home in Santa Monica, California at the age of 71. The victim of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, he had been plagued by ongoing pain and nerve issues in his arm for several years. ~ Steve Huey

I am 15 years old and striving to achieve even half the greatness that Keith Emerson did. :)

I am and have always been a huge ELP fan, ever since the first time I heard Brain Salad Surgery in the 70's. This is the first I have heard anything from At the Movies, but it sounds great!

Yep--Marc Holfield hit the nail on the head. NO ONE plays like this. I've been a pianist for over forty years, and followed all the best. With all the substandard music on our radio dial, his material towers miles above. So sad for the listeners who haven't heard him. If you can ever get a chance to hear him play "Hammer it Out", listen full board-- that's the name of my (this) particular Pandora station...Yo u GO Keith!!!!

He makes all other keyboardists seem ordinary. A true God-given talent like no other.

Without question the best. A real genius. Underated with all his greatness. What a showman!
There were rumors that ELP were going to team with Jimi Hendrix at one time!
