Redirected from Emerson Lake and Palmer
The three members are:
They formed in 1970 and broke up in 1979. They produced a series of albums, starting with the highly acclaimed Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Their works include some concept albums. Their sound was heavily dominated by the organ and Moog synthesizer[?] of flamboyant keyboard player Emerson. They were heavily influenced by classical music in addition to jazz and hard rock. Many of their pieces are arrangements of, or contain quotations from, classical music, and they can be said to fit into the sub-genre of symphonic rock.
In 1986, Emerson and Lake formed another "ELP" band with heavy metal[?] drummer Cozy Powell[?]. In 1987, Emerson and Palmer joined with Robert Berry to form the band 3[?]. The original band then reformed in 1991. They are last known to have played together in 1998.
