In the early 1970s, an era of grand gestures in rock, no band could match the scale of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Boasting an impressive pedigree in previous bands, Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer were huge from the off, the ultimate progressive rock group. Their eponymous 1970 debut album mixed new band compositions with reinterpretations of classical pieces, an approach that reached its apogee with the 1973 concept album 'Brain Salad Surgery'. The band live were a spectacle like no other, with their giant quadrophonic PA and a shirtless Emerson hurling knives into his Hammond organ - but when punk happened ELP abruptly fell out of fashion, splitting in 1978. Subsequent reformations culminated in a final gig at London's High Voltage festival in celebration of the band's 40th anniversary. 'The Show That Never Ends ... Encore', first published in 2000 and now fully revised and updated, chronicles the epic ELP saga. Drawing on interviews with band members and associates, and a host of archive sources, it is a gripping account of ego, band politics, period detail and sweeping musical ambition. Foruli Classics - classic music and popular culture books reborn.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer were, without question, one of the greatest rock bands of the 1970s. Selling millions of albums across the globe, and with all three members winning awards for their dazzling musical ability, ELP were no ordinary group. Superlative in every aspect, with a pioneering attitude, they were adored by their legions of fans, none more so than in the USA, where they toured widely in the first half of the decade. Considered one of the genre-founding bands of progressive rock, ELP were the embodiment of the dinosaurs that punk sought to kill. However, just like their peers - Yes, Genesis and Pink Floyd - they survived punk's onslaught, continuing to make albums until the mid-90s and touring right until their final concert, a headlining performance at London's High Voltage Festival in 2011. This book charts their rise, from the origins of each member in The Nice, King Crimson and Atomic Rooster respectively, via every track on all nine of their studio albums recorded between 1970 and 1994. Key recorded live performances - such as 1971's Pictures at an Exhibition - are also included. In addition, there are overviews on all three member's solo projects, together with the albums and singles they made before forming ELP. With informed insight and information, this is the ultimate guide to the band's music - a must-own companion to Emerson, Lake & Palmer's recorded legacy.

Greg Lake first won acclaim as lead vocalist, bass guitarist and producer when, together with Robert Fripp, he formed King Crimson. Their first album, the landmark In the Court of the Crimson King, co-produced by Greg, featured the iconic song '21st Century Schizoid Man'. King Crimson pioneered progressive rock and paved the way for many famous bands that followed, from Yes and Genesis to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. In 1970 Greg met fellow legend Keith Emerson during a North American tour; the two shared common bonds: European musical influences and a desire to reinterpret classical works while creating a new musical genre. After being introduced to drummer Carl Palmer, they formed the first progressive rock supergroup Emerson, Lake and Palmer. To date ELP has sold over 50 million records. Lake produced Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Tarkus, Pictures at an Exhibition, Trilogy, Brain Salad Surgery, Works Vol. 1 and 2, and two different live albums. All went platinum and featured a series of hit singles, most written and all sung by Lake. The three created a unique live theatrical performance which featured Emerson attacking his keyboards with knives, Palmer playing a 2.5 ton stainless steel kit and Lake performing on a £6,000 Persian rug which had its own roadie. One of their very first performances was at the historic Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 and they went on to headline California Jam, one of the biggest concerts of the 1970s, attended by 350,000 people. Probably the voice of his generation, Greg fronted the greatest rock supergroup of the 1970s but never held with the 'progressive' tag that attached itself to both the music and the excess. Lucky Man not only charts the highs and lows of a career in rock music but also reflects on the death of Keith Emerson last year, living with terminal cancer and the end of life. Greg can best be summed up by his now-famous line: 'Material wealth is a very fleeting pleasure ... when you can buy anything you want and do anything you want, you soon discover that you actually don't want any of it.'

Now in this insightful and irreverent memoir, Emerson tells uproarious tales of life on the road, tales of the high lifestyle that goes with being a rock star, and of course, tales of the outrageous, barrier-shattering music he produced.

Through critical analysis of the music itself, this book contextualizes key concepts of authorship relating to gender, race, technology, originality, uniqueness, and genius and raises important questions about the cultural constructions of authenticity, value, class, nationality, and genre. Using a range of case studies as examples, it visits areas as diverse as studio production, composition, DJing, collaboration, performance and audience. This book is an essential introduction to the critical issues and debates surrounding authorship in popular music. It is an ideal resource for students, researchers, and scholars in popular musicology and cultural studies.
