Rock ‘n’ roll is certainly taking it on the chin in 2016 as we bring you news of another rock legend passing away.  Keith Emerson from Emerson, Lake & Palmer died last evening in Santa Monica according to long-time band mate Carl Palmer. He was 71 years old.   Palmer went on to describe his former band mate as “a gentle soul whose love for music and passion for his performance as a keyboard player will remain unmatched for many years to come.  He was a pioneer and an innovator whose musical genius touched all of us in the worlds of rock, classical and jazz.”

We’ll be paying tribute to Keith on today’s Legends of Rock at 3PM.  Hope you’ll take a minute to help send off another rock ‘n’ roll icon…
