(1944 - 2016)

British keyboardist and composer Keith Emerson was born in the UK in Todmorden, Yorkshire, on 2 November 1944, and raised in the seaside resort of Worthing, West Sussex. With the foundation of the classical piano training he received as a child, Emerson created a personal style that combines classical music, jazz and rock. Renowned as one of the premier progressive rock keyboardists, Emerson performed extensively on the Hammond organ starting in the late 1960s, and in 1969 became one of the first musicians to perform live on the Moog synthesizer, which he incorporated into his concerts with The Nice and, later, Emerson Lake & Palmer, the supergroup he co-founded in 1970.
