Default Greg Lake passed 7 Dec.

I was bummed to just now hear that Greg Lake passed away after a long battle with cancer on 7 Dec. He was an integral part of two prog-rock behemoths, King Crimson and (obviously) Emerson, Lake and Palmer. With Keith Emerson's passing earlier this year, that means 2/3 of one of the most talented, ambitious, audacious, and successful bands of the '70's is now gone. RIP, Greg; your majestic voice and fantastic musicianship will be missed.

Here's one of my favorite Christmas songs, which is actually a cry against the over-commercialization of Christmas:

And some Prog-Metal while Heavy Metal was still in its infancy. I can imagine some hippies in 1969 sh&^ting their bell bottoms in fear after hearing this for the first time. Lake's distorted, rage-filled vocals are decades ahead of their time:

Oh, what a lucky man he was.

R.I.P., Mr. Lake.

So sad! I was going to mention that Schizoid Man is used in a TV cologne ad. But, I just found out it's a Kanye West song that samples it. I'm getting too old...
