Emerson Lake And Palmer Bio

Emerson, Lake & Palmer (sometimes abbreviated as ELP) were an English rock supergroup. In the 1970s, the band was extremely popular, selling over 40 million albums and headlining huge concerts. The band consisted of Keith Emerson (keyboards), Greg Lake (guitar, bass guitar, vocals) and Carl Palmer (drums, percussion).

On several occasions in 1969, The Nice (with Keith Emerson on keyboards) and King Crimson (with Greg Lake on bass and vocals) shared the same venue, first on August 10, 1969 at the 9th Jazz and Blues Pop Festival in Plumpton, England and on October 17, 1969 at Fairfield Halls in Croydon, England. The one where they actually met however, was Bill Grahams Fillmore West in San Fransisco.

After playing at a few of the same concerts, Emerson and Lake tried working together and found their styles to be not only compatible but also complementary. They wanted to be a keyboard/bass/drum band, and so searched out a drummer.
