Emerson, Lake & Palmer singer, bassist and guitarist Greg Lake died yesterday (Dec. 7) after what the band’s Facebook page describes as “a long and stubborn battle with cancer.”

Lake, who came to fame as the singer on King Crimson‘s first two albums, formed ELP in 1970 with drummer Carl Palmer and keyboardist Keith Emerson of the Nice. The group went on to become one of the most popular progressive rock bands of the ’70s on the strength of their jazz and classical music-influenced compositions.

This is the second loss Emerson, Lake and Palmer has suffered in less than a year. Emerson died this March after battling depression and a degenerative nerve issue.

We will have more on this breaking story shortly.

2016 just has to end.

Greg also had a short turn in Asia in 1983-1984.

God bless Greg and his loved ones. Another great loss in the rock-n-roll world. I find that the loss of these rock patriarchs is particularly sad as, at my age (of 62), they have been an intimate part of my life for many, many decades. You are sadly missed Greg Lake. Thank you for all the joy and pleasure you have brought us.
