Keith was (is) the man. It is hard to believe he is gone. HAving said that I am simply grateful to have seen him talked with him and heard everything he wrote or played. He will always be my favorite musician.

I sometimes wonder whether our present-day death-metalh e a d s have ever heard Crimson, the Nice, or ELP or realize the debt they owe them....BTW, this is incredible music to listen to whilst playing World of Warcraft.

Was that a little bit of Crimson's Epitaph thrown in there around... maybe 15 minutes or so? Great song no matter what, but that caught my ears in particular.
