We miss you, Greg

Tonight, two years ago, was the last night we had with Gregory still on Earth with us. Let us remember him however we can with the joy of the season in our hearts. I know that he had a really great attitude up until the end: he felt that he had lived a full life with no regrets, so he would not want us to cry about his leaving. Still, I know that we all miss him terribly, especially remembering this anniversary and right before Christmas with this song playing everywhere. So let’s bring it back once again as we lift a glass in toast of our favorite “Father Christmas.” R.I.P. kind sir and thanks for all the music and memories. We love you. ♥

Doug’s Tarkus Plate – Updated!

Remember Doug’s Tarkus license plate had one signature missing? Well, he recently mailed me an updated picture of it, and it now has all three of our boys’ autographs. I’m glad he got them all to sign this unique piece of memorabilia, found on our Memorabilia Page.

Got a piece of Greg Lake or ELP memorabilia or ephemera you’d like us to feature? Let us know! Send us an email and we’ll showcase your treasures.

Oh, and: GL’s New Year Greeting

Happy Holidays from the Ladies

We must try not to be sad and celebrate the Holiday season and the good things that it brings. So without further ado, we shall as in seasons past, post our very first video from way back in the days before YouTube even existed 🙂

This was so hard to make, remember, T? We had to kludge together a VHS tape with an audio track and speed it up or down to make it fit right. I thought it came out pretty well for what we had to work with.

Happy Holidays from Eileen, Kate, and Terry

One year ago…

…today, Mr. Lake was taken from us. Today we remember the dreaded anniversary with a moment of silence and most likely a few tears. Rest in peace, dear man. Thank you for all you brought us: the joys of your music and the laughter of your friendship.

RIP Greg Lake
