#KeithEmerson, founding member and keyboardist of #Emerson, Lake and #Palmer and a prog rock legend, died Friday. He was 71. His bandmate Carl Palmer wrote in a statement: “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. He was a pioneer and an innovator whose musical genius touched all of us in the worlds of rock, classical and jazz. I will always remember his warm smile, good sense of humor, compelling showmanship and dedication to his musical craft. I am very lucky to have known him and to have made the music we did together.” Photograph by Michael Putland
