: I always am hearing about this guy, he is in every keyborad mag and seems to be worshipped by everyone. Is he some analog keyboard guy? Does he play keys in a glam rock band or something? I would trade him for Bernard Sumner anyday.

Keith is the "E" in Emmerson, Lake & Palmer A.K.A. ELP. They were (and are actually still somewhat together - mostly for touring) a 70's three-piece band (keyboards, bass and Drums) that primarily revolved around Keith. He is awsome and plays varied styles ranging from classical to killer B3 and synths. Keith was one of the early synth pioneers and as you are aware is still looked up to by the industry at large. Want to know more, buy a couple of ELP CD's from the 70's. I'd start with Barbarian, then Tarkus, and perhaps Brain Salad Surgery.
