KEITH EMERSON - Birthday

KEITH EMERSON – BIRTHDAY

Keith Emerson is born 2 November 1944, Todmorden, Lancashire, England. Organist Emerson was briefly associated with several British club R&B attractions prior to joining soul singer P.P. Arnold's backing group in 1967.

Known as the Nice, this unit later embarked on an independent career and quickly established itself as a leading progressive rock act.

Emerson's keyboard dexterity and showmanship

—he used knives to sustain notes during lengthy improvisations—was undoubtedly their focal point, a feature continued on his subsequent venture, the ‘supergroup’ Emerson, Lake And Palmer.

Although deemed pretentious by critics, the trio became highly successful and maintained a rigorous recording schedule throughout the early '70s.


Emerson's solo single, "Honky Tonk Train Blues," recorded during a hiatus in the parent group's career, reached the UK Top 30 in 1976, but the artist did not pursue such ambitions full-time until ELP was dissolved in 1980.

The artist scored the films THE INFERNO and NIGHTHAWKS, and completed a series of musicianly collections, but this facet of his work conflicted with other projects, notably Emerson, Lake And Powell

and 3, with Carl Palmer and Robert Berry.

In 1992, Emerson, Lake And Palmer reformed, recording an album and prepared to the road once again.

The Nice is reunited in 2002, for gig in Glazgow.

The nucleus of the Keith Emerson band was formed in 2002, after a chance meeting with guitarist Dave Kilminster at a Qango gig. With Pete Riley on drums and Phil Williams on bass, they began playing with a reunion of Emerson's The Nice in 2002 and have continued to perform to great acclaim in global tours including the United States, Japan, and Europe.

Fans have sparked to the energy and enthusiasm radiated by the band as they play Emerson classics from the Nice, his solo career and Emerson Lake and Palmer. Audiences have wholeheartedly embraced new compositions premiered in 2005. New interpretations of classic rock covers played to standing ovations in 2005.

Since 2002, the band has consisted of guitarist and vocalist Dave Kilminster, bass player Phil Williams and Drummer Pete Riley. With the 2006 American tour, Kilminster is on hiatus, fulfilling another touring commitment, and joining on guitar and vocals is long term Emerson friend and collaborator Marc Bonilla.
