Greg Lake – The World Bids Goodbye to the Golden Voice of ELP

Greg Lake

 Greg Lake – November 10th  1947 – December 7th, 2016

The world said Goodbye to Greg Lake, another music icon of the 60’s. Though not as common a household name as Steve Perry or  Geddy Lee of Rush, Lake had one of the sweetest voice in progressive rcok and was probably one of the biggest vocal influences of the genre.

Lake’s clear, soaring vocals were a trademark of ELP’s music, although King Crimson fans may best remember him for his potent singing on that band’s ear-bending “21st Century Schizoid Man,” which was praised by both Jimi Hendrix and The Who’s Pete Townshend.
