I saw another news item about Keith Emerson - very sad. Apparently he shot himself.

I saw 'The Nice' in Kingston (I think it was at the swimming pool that they used to board over) fantastic! I remember Keith had a couple of sheath knives that he used to wedge between the keys. It must have cost him a fortune.

Sadly decent videos of The Nice are a bit thin on the ground but here they're playing Rondo -

RIP Keith.

Sorry it's a bit late, but I only joined the Forum last Autumn, and I've never been down this far before!
I first saw ELP at the London Pavilion in late 1971. I have the DVD of the 1997 Montreux Festival show - frightening to think that's 20 years ago come summer - and Keith was still doing the knife thing in the encore then (along with playing upside down and so on).
In the early 70s the "keyboard kings" were Rick Wakeman, Jon Lord and Keith. I was a big Deep Purple fan, and never really into Yes. In truth, I wasn't that keen on quite a bit of ELPs output, but as a keyboard performer Keith was head and shoulders above the other two.
