CARL PALMER STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF GREG LAKE
It is with great sadness that I must now say goodbye to my friend and fellow band-mate, Greg Lake.
Greg’s soaring voice and skill as a musician will be remembered by all who knew his music and recordings he made with ELP and King Crimson. I have fond memories of those great years we had in the 1970s and many memorable shows we performed together.
December 8, 2016
Yesterday, December 7th, I lost my best friend to a long and stubborn battle with cancer. Greg Lake will stay in my heart for ever, as he has always been. His family would be grateful for privacy during this time of their grief. Many thanks, Stewart Young
