Carl Palmer is the only one worth seeing out of the band. Emerson is an incredible player but he is no musician. I mean by that, that he has no soul-he plays in an overblown flashy style which simply grates.I always thought Wakeman was over the top until I saw KE. Theirs was the only gig I ever walked out of because I was bored. First saw Palmer in the King Bees (he was about 14) and he was incredible then-why hew stayed with ELP was always beyond me.Lake has some idea of how to play musically when he uses an acoustic but is swamped by Keiths overkill.They just do not have the songs,I'm afraid.Do not waste your time on them, there are better practitioners of the progressive rock genre. Yes and Gentle Giant to name two.
