Janis Ian posted on her Facebook Page on Dec. 9th about her collaboration with Greg Lake when he was with The Shame, and has also posted about further collaboration between the two of them on a song which was never published. She has posted the song as well; see the Facebook post and link to the song here. Thanks to Mari Kawaguchi (the late Keith Emerson’s partner) for bringing it to our attention)

A big “Happy Birthday” shout-out to our own Lady of the Lake, Terry, today! Hope your day is a great one, T!
Even though this will be a sad, sad holiday season due to our Hero’s passing this year, we do know that he would not want us to be dwelling on it nor feeling bad about it. As he stated in an interview with the UK’s Sunday Express, he was not afraid to die, nor did he have any regrets; he said he had lived a full life, and done everything he had wanted to. So, with that said, we will, as in every year, post our featured video of his beloved “I Believe in Father Christmas,” and encourage everyone to pull family and friends close, tell them you love them, and cherish the fleeting time you have with them on this planet, as tomorrow is not guaranteed.
We are heartbroken to share this announcement from Stewart Young this morning:
Yesterday, December 7th, I lost my best friend to a long and stubborn battle with cancer. Greg Lake will stay in my heart forever, as he has always been. His family would be grateful for privacy during this time of their grief.

Greg’s Interviews page has finally been updated by a *cough* rather hopelessly behind web admin.July 16th, 2016 – 11:08 am
“In the Studio” with Redbeard featured Greg Lake in its weekly newsletter with a live rendition of “Affairs of the Heart,” from 1992. And, great news – he will be returning during the week of July 25 for another interview with Carl Palmer!
To lighten the mood a little from last weekend’s tragic loss, we present to you a new Close Encounter sent to us by Lisa Anne, entitled “Lisa’s Lapse,” on our Close Encounters page. This is a charming tale of meeting Greg at a concert back in 1973 when artists freely mingled with the crowd, although Lisa got in a little trouble in the end. Thank you, Lisa, for sharing your story with us!
Greg has released his statement on Keith’s passing, but so many people tried to access it at once yesterday that his website exceeded its bandwidth and it is basically shut down, including the discussion forum. I’ve contacted the server manager for help with this, but in the meantime, here is the statement in its entirety. (That’s what’s meant by “going viral”)
Shocked and saddened to learn that Mr. Keith Emerson has passed away at the age of 71. I just don’t know what can be said, other than, rest in peace, sir. You will be sorely missed. Thank you for all the music and for being a part of one of the greatest bands on earth.
