This is one of the saddest pieces I know so it's most appropriate here. Rest in peace, sir.

Damn. In The Court is still the best prog album to me.
Logged

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

That's a great LP. 

Hard to believe we lost 2/3 of ELP in 2016.

Any opinions posted by me regarding the music of The Beach Boys, and their members, is in no way a show of disrespect towards any member of The Beach Boys, past or present.

I don't see the point in punishing Brian's musical output solely because Mike wants to wow the President Elect with how long he can weeze "wheeeeeeen" into a microphone.- rab2591

I never would have guessed when I saw Ringo on his 2001 tour that a post-intermission power trio performance of "Karn Evil 9" by the trio of Greg Lake, Howard Jones, and Sheila E. would be one of the highlights of the night.

Loved his voice and guitar! Lucky Man is an all time classic!

2016 continues to be a shitty year. 2/3 of ELP gone.! Sucks!

RIP Greg Lake!

Tarkus was their best, "Stones of Years" one of my favorites from it.
What a powerful voice he had.

Here's one of mine from Brain Salad Surgery:

I saw him in '72 with ELP at a pollwinners' concert, with Tarkus in tow:

And rightly so, because it's fantastic.

In an alternate version, the following limerick-palindrome could be a memorial tribute to Greg Lake. The 1'st & 5'th line were originally in essence coined by Mr. K, as part of a regular palindrome last year. Now, I've framed them to form a new limerick-palindrome, almost rhyming with the one shown furthest below. But alas the 3'rd line in this mix becomes way too long for a limerick (I guess that "M" would signify: use EMerson or Don't):

>Sex-e-palindromes unite GODs EXes!
An integral EVIL perplexes.
Ex-ELP-rep.: live-large-t^'nin!
AS "EXes": DO-GET-IN !
Use M. or D.; nil APEXes.<

So instead I'll go for a more general wording (with a zen-bhuddistic punchline, though that might be a contradiction in terms) which could apply to most - if not all of us [By Mr.K/SkRm]:

>Sex-e-palindromes unite GODs EXes

An integral EVIL --- flexes !

Ex-elf: live-LargE-T^'NIN!

AS "EXes": DO-GET-IN !

Use M.O.Rd; nil APEXes<
