It is with great sadness that members of TarkusLive, ELP Tribute,
mark the departure of Keith Emerson.
Condolences to the family and fans. And of course the other founding members of the British group
Emerson, Lake & Palmer: Carl Palmer and Greg Lake.
As well as Lee Jackson (THE NICE).
Keith Emerson: Behold the man, Ecce Homo, who paid the price for all his life
to become what he ultimately became:
All is done.
Farewell Keith Emerson - the master
1944- 2016

Greg Lake’s premiere of his "Songs of a Lifetime" tour in Québec city last night
was a touching moment of musical history.

In top vocal shape, the man proved he is still relevant after over 40 years, and is taking advantage of today’s technology to bring his catalogue to new life. Sometimes revisiting songs from King Crimson and ELP, sometimes paying tribute to the musicians that influenced and impressed him, he weaved the tapestry of his musical life, including anecdotes which let us discover that his storytelling skills are up to par with his musical skills.

Greg is a great entertainer, and the Q&A session was another occasion to discover a warm and open individual. We had the privilege of personally meeting him after the show, and he was very kind and generous despite his busy schedule. We also had the pleasant surprise of meeting Stewart Young, long-time manager for ELP.

In short, hats off to The Greg Lake "Songs of a Lifetime" tour.
