Quote:Emerson, Lake & Palmer keyboardist Keith Emerson has died at the age of 71.

The news was confirmed by on the band’s Facebook page and their official website.

A statement reads: "We regret to announce that Keith Emerson died last night at his home in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, aged 71. We ask that the family’s privacy and grief be respected."

Santa Monica police confirmed Emerson died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Bandmate Carl Palmer adds: "I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my good friend and brother-in-music, Keith Emerson.

"Keith was a gentle soul whose love for music and passion for his performance as a keyboard player will remain unmatched for many years to come. He was a pioneer and an innovator whose musical genius touched all of us in the worlds of rock, classical and jazz.

"I will always remember his warm smile, good sense of humour, compelling showmanship, and dedication to his musical craft.

"I am very lucky to have known him and to have made the music we did, together. Rest in peace, Keith."

The keyboardist was born on November 2, 1944, and played with the Keith Emerson Trio, John Brown's Bodies, The T-Bones, The V.I.P.’s and PP Arnold’s backing band The Nice, before co-founding supergroup ELP in 1970 with singer and guitarist Greg Lake and drummer and percussionist Carl Palmer.

They released the studio albums Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Tarkus, Trilogy, Brain Salad Surgery, Works Volume 1 and 2, and Love Beach between their formation and 1978, along with live record Pictures At An Exhibition.

They split in 1979, coming back together in 1991, releasing Black Moon in 1992 and In The Hot Seat in 1994.

Emerson also carved out a successful solo career and worked on a variety of film soundtracks.

He was due to tour Japan next month.

Yet another one bites the dust.  Sad

Ja die Welt hat wieder einen ganz großen innovativen Künstler verloren.
Vermutlich hat er sich selbst erschossen, weil sich seine Nervenerkrankung, die dazu führte, dass er zum Schluss nur noch mit acht Fingern spielen konnte,  zu verschlimmern drohte  :'(
