Greg Lake took the time recently to answer many of his fans fan questions on his Web site. There  is lots of great information to read about in the extensive Q&A. Great news Emerson and Lake plan to return to America touring again at some point. Glad to hear this as their Ridgefield, Ct. show was magical.

If the High Voltage Festival ELP reunion concert in England on July 25, 2010 goes well then we will see an Emerson, Lake and Palmer US tour also! Welcome Back My Friends! Having seen Keith Emerson Band live, Carl Palmer Band live, Asia live one Emerson and Lake live, ELP live would be the piece de resisitance.

I love the song Epitath from King Crimson’s In The Court of the Crimson King. Its a lovely haunting epic that encircles my heart and soul often. I was pleased to read Greg Lake’s interpretation of it. Allow me to share it with you.

Greg Lake wrote:

Epitaph is basically a song about looking with confusion upon a world gone mad. King Crimson had a strange ability to write about the future in an extremely prophetic way and the messages this song contains are even more relative today than they were when the song was originally written.

The walls on which the prophets wrote are cracking at the seams, upon the instruments of death, the sunlight brightly gleams. When every man is torn apart with nightmares and with dreams, will no one lay the laurel wreath when silence drowns the screams. Confusion will be my Epitaph.
