Greg Lake, a singer and multi-instrumentalist who helped propel prog rock into the mainstream as a member of Emerson, Lake and Palmer and King Crimson, died Tuesday. His manager told the BBC he had recently had "a long and stubborn battle with cancer"; the news comes nine months after the death of his bandmate, Keith Emerson.

GREG LAKE PASSES FROM CANCER AT 69 - MY COVER OF ELP'S "FROM THE BEGINNING" - RIP MR LAKE
Here we go again, sheeeesh. Very saddened once again to hear news like this. Instead of words this time, I thought I'd wheel out my 2007 cover of ELP's "From The Beginning." A guy named Rick Jones on the vocals and acoustic guitar and yours truly on electric guitars and all other instruments, production. My way of saying rest in peace Mr Lake, thanks for all the great music.....The Horror!!
