Emerson, Lake & Palmer Caricature


Emerson, Lake & Palmer Caricature, illustrated here in 1971 with Keith Emerson (keyboards) age 27, Greg Lake (guitars) age 24 and Carl Palmer (drums) age 21.

ELP were an English progressive rock supergroup formed in London in April 1970. They were one of the most popular and commercially successful progressive rock bands in the 1970s, with a musical sound including adaptations of classical music with jazz and symphonic rock elements, dominated by Emerson’s flamboyant use of the Hammond organ, Moog synthesizer, and piano.

Keith Emerson and Greg Lake met in December 1969 when Emerson’s band, The Nice, and Lake’s band, King Crimson, were billed together for a series of concerts at the Fillmore West in San Francisco. Emerson was looking to form a new band, and Lake wished to leave King Crimson.
After the auditions of several drummers, Carl Palmer of Atomic Rooster and previously, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown was chosen to form the trio.

The band came to prominence following their performance at the Isle of Wight Festival in August 1970 and released several popular progressive albums: Emerson, Lake & Palmer (1970) and Tarkus (1971), both of which reached the UK top five. The band’s success continued with Pictures at an Exhibition (1971), Trilogy (1972), and Brain Salad Surgery (1973). After a three-year break, Emerson, Lake & Palmer released Works Volume 1 (1977) and Works Volume 2 (1977). After Love Beach (1978), the group disbanded in 1979.

Greatest hits: “Fanfare For The Common Man”, “Nutrocker”, “Karn Evil 9”, “Still You Turn Me On”, “Toccata”, “Trilogy”, “Hoedown”, “From The Beginning”, “Tarkus”, “The Barbarian” and “Lucky Man”.

Emerson died on March 11, 2016 in Santa Monica, California, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, he was 71.
Greg Lake died in London on December 7, 2016, at the age of 69, after suffering from cancer.
