Rock and Roll Heaven: Keith Emerson (1944 -2016)

Emerson, Lake and Palmer keyboardist Keith Emerson was found dead March 10, 2016, in his Santa Monica home. His bandmate Carl Palmer, took to social media to memorialize him:

"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 world 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 have made the music we did together. Rest in peace, Keith."

Here's one of the band's many hits, Lucky Man.
