Azz and world music he has set a standard by which others are judged This is his memoi. I had a hard time finding this book It is no longer in publication I got the book from eBay Great book Keith Emerson penned an interesting autobiography about himself He talks about the days when he was with The Nice especially the burning of the American flag He moved on to form one of the most successful Progressive Rock Band Emerson Lake and Palmer He talks about his conflicts with Greg Lake sometimes He talks about all their discography and he also talks about his solo projects in the 1980's I also read Greg Lake's autobiography 'Lucky Man' and he talks about their manager in the US Dee Anthony and he mentions how he was part of the mob Keith didn't dwell to deep about Dee Anthony Keith tells it as it is he talks about how he was involved with Hell Angel' He also gets into their wild parties like cocaine use Greg Lake never talks about that Keith had a lot to talk because he ended the book just after the Works tour and the making of the Love Beach album which was a disaster He could of continued when the band toured in the 1990's and he never talks about their Black Moon and Hot Seat album There is a big void during that timeline Hopefully Carl Palmer will publish his autobiography someday

That was intense I am again biased but maybe as most of the readers of an autobiography of the great musician Especially now when there are not many available copies and those on ebay and are uite pricey so only the hardcore fans buy them I'm glad I got oneI did expect stories of sex drugs and rock'n'roll and there are a lot Maybe of the former than the latter What I did not expect is that these stories would be presented in such a marvellous style Keith Emerson mentioned that it was the first thing he had written after school writings; there must be a ghost writer involved but even so it is so unmistakably Emo The expressive and excessive prog god Full sentences with proper grammar are for ordinary people Here we have abrupt changes slipping in and out of the direct speech wordplay the silliest possible puns misplaced modifiers and shortcuts through the narrative right to the exclamation point And of course there are plenty of constructed memories and straightforward mythologyI did expect I would shed some tears reading this after his tragic death and shed I did bounteously What I did not expect is that I would be laughing gasping as blushing so much I don't think I managed to read any page placid facedI wanted this book never to end and it complied making me stop ever so often for wiping tears of sadness or laughter for re reading some parts in disbelief or for an involuntary facepalm at some other partsAll rock'n'roll autobiographies that I have read are prone to sliding into fact checking at some point after the artist had reached success and the creative drive gave way to business routine Recorded this song with these and these musicians this album went platinum then this album Emo had to include a long list of titles and names too But overall the book is a wonderfully presented story of one very talented and not too happy man
