Famed Jazz Guitarist Charles Johnson Pays Tribute to the late Keith Emerson by Tweeting Photo of Greg Lake.Posted: March 13, 2016
Another classic rock icon is gone.
Keith Emerson (keyboardist extraordinaire of the power trio Emerson, Lake & Palmer) committed suicide at the age of 71 on 10 March 2016 in Santa Monica California. According to Rolling Stone, Emerson blew his brains out with a hand gun.
Jazz guitarist and fellow ELP bandmate Charles Johnson (who lives within biking distance of the late Emerson) expressed his sincere condolences in a Tweet:
Charles is a pretentious, pathetic petulant poser, and Little Green Footballs deserve their own Theme Song. So, with the powers bestowed upon me and without further ado, I hereby designate the following song to be representative of the aforementioned blog and its rumpswab of an owner, for any reason whatsoever, now and forevermore. Amen.
