Profile
Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP) was a popular English progressive rock group formed by members of The Nice (Keith Emerson), King Crimson (Greg Lake), and Atomic Rooster (Carl Palmer) in 1970. The band was notable for their classical and jazz influenced compositions, virtuoso musicianship, and over-the-top live performances, as well as having a sense of humor. They broke up in 1979, regrouped from 1991 to 1998 for live shows and studio recordings, then again in 2010 until Emerson's death in 2016. ELP is widely regarded as one of the quintessential progressive rock bands, largely defining the standard for the keyboard-led trio format.
