In it, Carl Palmer aptly notes, "Keith was a gentle soul whose love for music and passion for his performance as a keyboard player will remain unmatched for many years to come," Carl Palmer says of ELP bandmate.

While I (Steph) never saw ELP live, I did have the opportunity to see Keith Emerson and his band perform live when he headlined NEARFest 2006. He and the whole band gave a great performance. Not to make this about me - it ain't - but you can read my review of NF here.
