Music bows its head - December 2016

Greg Lake was a stunningly powerful presence on stage the first time I saw him live at London's Marquee singing with King Crimson in 1969. He had a beautiful voice and was a riveting player on both bass and six string acoustic. We only met once, but he greeted me warmly and it was wonderful to congratulate him for all he'd achieved over the years. He had a huge impact on music. He certainly was an influence on Genesis.

It's so close on the heels of the passing of Keith Emerson. My thoughts go out to Carl Palmer, friends and family. He will be deeply missed by us all. The world of music bows its head to acknowledge the passing of one of the greats.
