Sadly for some strange reason I never picked up on King Crimson I know I should have but that`s the way it worked out, a close friend of mine would often play their music especially their debut album.
He was also a massive ELP fan, and so I really don`t know that much about Lake`s inclusion in the short time he was a member of the band.
On ELPs Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends live album from the 73-74 world tour excerpt of Epitaph was peformed by Lake, a great track indeed and they played Battlefield on the Tarkus tour which I think was an original idea from King Crimson etc.
Pete Sinfield also co-wrote some King Crimson songs along with ELP as well, did you know when ELP recorded Brain Salad Surgery they got to meet H.R.Giger in Switzerland and Emerson said had he played and instrument they would welcomed him as a fourth member of the band! Give me Emerson over Wakeman anyday he had much more menace and you didn`t quite know what was coming next with him, Wakeman was a more refined player, PowerKnight wink

Sinfield wrote the lyrics on the first 4 Crimson lp's and was largely responsible for their 'image'....but he did not do the cover of the famous face on the first one. That was a friend of his who died at a very young age.
At the time of the 4th lp Sinfield and Fripp had a falling out and became 'enemies' for a very long time and even had back and forth rants against each other online on several websites after the web was up and running. Sinfield claimed that Fripp did not give him credit and proper money for all the work he had done. Fripp claimed this was due to EG, their record label at the time, and that Sinfield overreacted.
I like Emerson and Wakeman equally on the keyboards though I will agree that Emerson was a better live peformer.
Ck out these two links...you tube of Wakemans 6 Wives and a link to a Sinfield site. cool

I actually prefer Wakemans solo outings than his Yes work, I`m not quite sure why I have almost all his studio work on vinyl and a few on CD.
I`m going to check the Sinfield site when I have a little more time, looks interesting I have his studio album on vinyl his first one I think but it`s been ages since I last played it, PowerKnight wink

drwu23, of your musical tastes I thought you were a UK or possibly a European resident, I`m a little surprised to find a US citizen into a more English based musical genre am I right.
This is very rare and very refreshing, I`m on a couple of musical forum based sites all HR/HM mostly and they tend to be quite gung-ho. Mind you I do love some great American bands it`s been basically the UK and the US flying the flag of the very best in music throughout the times.
There is talent out here but these days you have to find it yourself if it isn`t mainstream fodder not many are really interested in today`s modern climate, what happened to the rock n roll song, breaking your brain and making you stronger! PowerKnight wink

Im currently listening to one of the greatest heavy metal genious in the whole history: Chuck Schuldiner!

Death was a incredible band in the heavy metal scene. Their contribution to the heavy metal scene is the greatest influence for nowadays modern bands. They created a new subgenre to the scene, which is called Death Metal.Unfortunatelly, Chuck died in 2002, but he still lives inside his fans hearts!

Here is what Im listening right now:

Being from a generation where music was synonymous of rock, that's what I've always prefered as music. But also folk, pop, and everything that was produced in the 60's.

My favorite of all? The best rock band ever, of course: The Doors!


Cheers!

Surely, itīs a great band and a great time too! I really like The Doors rock n roll music as well Dolf!

You certainly have a good taste!

Coming from the old school of music I`m afraid I know nothing about Death, I`m not too hot on the newer breed metal type bands. I`ll be honest I find them very stereotype and basically sounds similar to other metal bands, there are few newer bands and artists I like but not many.
The greatest doom metal band of them all...Black Sabbath...and the heaviest mothers of them all, the Ozzy years, want a blast of thee heaviest album of all time, try Sabotage from 1975.
This is full throttle insane metal, it`s not just heavy but one thick slab of very dense thick murky dirty metal soul, be prepared for a full frontal brain assault on the lobes.
This is the impact that would leave you if you survived a black hole...beyond the event horizon and here is the imprint left behind the proof! Must be played at FULL VOLUME, PowerKnight wink

Power Knight, you certainly made an excellent point now! I really like a good number of new bands, but I gotta agree with you in this one, the old ones still rule the scene!

About Death, itīs a 80īs band! Not that new I suppose! Their sound is a mix beetween progressive metal with thrash, altough played in a faster tempo! They created the genre Death Metal and contributed very much into what we call modern metal scene nowadays!

For me, Chuck Schuldiner is one of the greatest musicians in history! Needless to say Im a huge fan of him!

I donīt know if this is your taste of music, but I really suggest checking out some of Death songs! There might be a few that fit your taste!

Needless to say Im huge fan of Black Sabbath as well! They are obvious legends!

Cheers!

Many of the younger generation would disagree but I think you have an option of basic facts here! The first three Sabbath albums was the template for doom metal, but I tend to go with Sabbath from Vol 4 onwards, Sabotage is BRUTAL beyond belief.
My confession when I play this album my alter-ego enters another dimension and it unlocks something very primeval in my grey matter, I feel free and very insane but it`s a very liberating experience believe me!
Ozzy shine`s here forget about the MTV Sharon b******t, here lies Ozzy in a unique soulful mood, Sabbath/Ozzy had soul no other metal doom band had this vital component.
It`s only in recent years Sabotage has gained more credibility it`s always been my Sabbath album, Iommi kills, I can feel my system starting to get very anxious! PowerKnight wink

Power Knight, we share the same toughts and taste regarding Black Sabbathīs music! Vol.4 is my favorite album! The songs are complete in terms of music! Power, melody, harmony and great lyrics! You simple canīt stop appreciating those riffs!

What Iommi brought into this album is beyond anything I have ever seen! Surely another music genius! One of the greatest(considered the greatest by many, and I surely wonīt judge that!) guitar player ever! I should mention, tho, my favorite part of this album, is the bass! Im a guitar player and a bass player, and I gotta say Geezer is my favorite bass player ever, and the reason is Vol.4! I guess you lready know why!! cheesy

Everything seemed to blend so well! They created this atmosphere towards their music! I canīt even explain it correctly! You bet this album never left my playlist! I canīt even pick a favorite song, they are all top class stuff!

This one deserves a good glass of dark beer! Cheers man! cheesy

This is something Sabbath had over other bands, yes what a contrast HAL, Vol 4 was about progression, Geezer Butler...pumping bass man enough said!
I saw Sabbath in 1980 with Dio I then saw Heaven and Hell in 2009 I think it was, met the whole band.
I`m 50 still have a full length head of hair long and don`t ask me how but I still haven`t gone grey! Wearing my Dio sweatshirt loud and proud, met him backstage in 2006 my all time hero...RJD forever...the amount of stuff I have got spans back to 1978 to present. PowerKnight wink

I happen to be a big fan of progressive rock and the best imo is English and European. The Brits really pioneered prog .I have a huge collection from all countries including the US. The only big name US band was Kansas...there were also Happy The Man, Styx, and a few others but Europe and England were the main areas for true prog rock....and still are for neo-prog.
