Yeah, we've reached that time for many of the sixties stars, but it appears to date, 2016 is being a real Mother of a year.

My mom will be bummed. She was talking about them the other day when I announced that I am naming my first boy Emerson. She noted that this was one of her favorite bands.

Oh wow, one of my previous bands used to get compared to Emerson Lake & Palmer all the time (although I thought we were musically more like Pat Metheny Group).

I am getting older by the minute, watching the greats fall, one by one.

She is, and thank goodness for her taste in music, it's influenced at least 2 of her kids!

Wow, that's spooky.

Only recently downloaded Fanfare For The Common Man to my laptop playlist.

Sounds like he had cancer and saw himself off before the cancer did.

We have to eradicate this awful disease.

RIP

We went to karaoke last night. Someone sang Lucky Man and they ended the night with Karnevil9. (No one with a Mike then but the crowd all sang. )

NOOOOOOOOOOO! Im glad I at least got to see him live. Rick Wakeman (YES) and Keith were my favorites.

Keith live used to stab his Hammond B3 with swords to hold down a key or two while he played....

Amazingly sad and defeated today now.....

Now I read he died of a gunshot wound...self inflicted. This is harder to take than just him passing. Keith was idolized, stylized, inspiring, creative and a genius beyond words.

As a lead guitarist...Ive always played keys as well....but almost gave them up when I first heard him. Keith led me to classically inspired playing and taught me the discipline to work hard means to attain proficiency.

Ive only worn a black arm once in my life for the passing of one musical great....today I don the second....

Sadly at a loss...and the world of music grieves with me..............
