  • Emerson, Lake & Palmer

    Just think: The 1970s English progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP) was almost HELP – Hendrix, Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Unfortunately, Jimi Hendrix died before this idea could be explored, just 26 days after their jam session together. Still very much a supergroup, ELP featured The Nice’s Keith Emerson on Hammond organ and Moog synthesizer, King Crimson’s Greg Lake on bass, vocals, and guitar, and Carl Palmer from Atomic Rooster and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown on drums. Together they did the unprecedented thing of combining classical suites with hard rock and found great success in the 1970s, bringing prog-rock to an arena-scale audience and paving the way for bands like Yes. Listening to ELP’s complex time signatures, virtuosic playing, and landmark progressive rock albums on vinyl is as epic as their music.
