|Emerson, Lake, and Palmer||
My simple view is the three of them are very talented musicians. They are good at what they do. They may not please everyone but let’s give them credit for the music they provided and still provide as solo musicians and as players in other bands. They (EPL) would be the first to admit, and have done so - that Love Beach was not their best moment. It's not an easy business to be in for sure.
Aside from all the politics, hype, criticism about any band for that matter.....it's just music and it's a lot of fun and hard work in most cases. If one plays music and makes a "living at it" you are very fortunate in my view.
Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer, are just travelling through life like we all are. They are great musicians - extremely talented. It is "low-brow" indeed to "pick apart" every little thing they did, or are doing, along their musical journey. .
They did contribute a lot to the evolution of Rock Music.
So.......although I do respect an informed opinion, I must reject your overall assessment of the band; as being counterproductive in the extreme. Your post is detailed enough but in my view, undeservingly slanted in the negative regarding the musical talent in those three chaps. It's all good brother.
