Greg Lake: King Crimson and ELP star dies aged 69 – BBC News

Greg Lake, who fronted both King Crimson and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, has died aged 69.

One of the founding fathers of progressive rock, the British musician is known for songs including In the Court of the Crimson King and I Believe in Father Christmas.

He died on Wednesday after “a long and stubborn battle with cancer”, said his manager.

Oh, man, 2016, can you please stop now? I was a huge fan of ELP back in the 70s, and saw them once at Madison Square Garden. I also loved – and still love – King Crimson, but Lake only was with the band for the first two albums.

  1. We hear you, I wasn’t a big Emerson Lake and Palmer fan but many people/friends who I knew were big fans, the days just keep getting shorter
