New “Close Encounter”

March 20th, 2016 – 8:34 pm

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!

March 13th, 2016 – 10:45 am

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”)

March 11th, 2016 – 5:42 pm

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.
