Such loss

Greg Lake passed away this week, after Keith Emerson's having died this spring. Just leaves Carl Palmer. They were huge. Do you remember just how big they were? I loved their music, I loved Greg Lake's voice; they hold an immortal place in my memory, in my heart, of my teen-aged years. I despise this business of getting older, of seeing heroes pass, and this year it seems as though it has been especially brutal. So much talent, so many big ideas suddenly stopped.

He wrote "Lucky Man' when he was 12 years old. Imagine that.

A photo a day over at Chicken Blog, too.
