Greg Lake Dead - Emerson, Lake, & Palmer Singer Dies at 69 From Cancer

Greg Lake – one of the founders of the famous bands Emerson, Lake and Palmer – has passed away at the age of 69 on Tuesday (December 8).

His manager said he had “a long and stubborn battle with cancer,” via the BBC.

“It is with great sadness that I must now say goodbye to my friend and fellow bandmate, Greg Lake,” Carl Palmer wrote in a statement. “Greg’s soaring voice and skill as a musician will be remembered by all who knew his music and recordings he made with ELP and King Crimson. I have fond memories of those great years we had in the 1970s and many memorable shows we performed together. Having lost Keith this year as well has made this particularly hard for all of us. As Greg sang at the end of Pictures at an Exhibition, ‘death is life.’ His music can now live forever in the hearts of all who loved him.”

The band was responsible for hits such as “Lucky Man,” “The Barbarian,” “From the Beginning,” “Hoedown,” and more. Keith Emerson passed away back in March.
