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.
Happy 70th Birthday to Mr. Lake in Music Heaven

Janis Ian on Greg Lake – song she worked on with him has been posted
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)
Happy Holidays from the Ladies
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.
Greg Lake has passed away
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.
