Greg Lake, who co-founded the popular progressive rock band Emerson, Lake and Palmer … died Wednesday.
Greg’s agent said he died after “a long and stubborn battle with cancer.” Greg is the second member from the ’70s band to die in 2016 — founding member and keyboardist Keith Emerson died back in March.
ELP burst onto the scene in 1970 at the Isle of Wight Festival … where Jimi Hendrix and The Who also famously headlined. The band broke up off and on and reunited for a tour as recently as 2010.
Greg also had a successful solo career that included the 1975 classic, “I Believe in Father Christmas.”
He was 69.
