One year ago…

December 7th, 2017 – 7:52 am

…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

Happy 70th Birthday to Mr. Lake in Music Heaven

November 10th, 2017 – 9:12 am
Tagged as: Birthdays

Today we remember Mr. Greg Lake on what would have been his 70th birthday. It’s also the first time since 2001 that we haven’t had a virtual birthday card on this site that we’ve collected signatures from fans to send to him. So it’s with much sadness that we say, Happy Birthday up there in Music Heaven, Mr. Lake – I know you’re jamming with Keith and all the other greats that have passed on before you. R.I.P. good and kind sir. We sure do miss you.

R.I.P., Mr. Tony Ortiz

November 1st, 2017 – 10:59 pm

We’re extremely saddened to learn of Tony Ortiz’ passing. We know that he had been suffering from the devastating effects of his condition for the last few years and just wanted to pay tribute to ELP’s Number One Fan and Archivist. Tony, you contributed much to this site, and were the one who got Greg to sign our Ladies of the Lake tee shirt all those years ago. We owe you a debt of gratitude and wish you Godspeed on your final journey. You kept the ELP flame burning bright and never wavered in your dedication, all the way to the end. There’ll never be another like you. Rest in peace.

~ Eileen, Kate, and Terry

Happy Holidays from the Ladies

December 14th, 2016 – 9:07 am

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.

Many thanks,
Stewart Young
