FlinterFile: Emerson, Lake & Palmer- Lucky Man


In 1970, Emerson, Lake & Palmer rounded up an old song. The song was started with Greg Lake, who visited a friend when he was 12 years old. He discovered an old guitar, on which he tried to play a tune. He asked for a guitar that Christmas, which he got. He could then write the complete song, which went in the archive. When recording his first album with Emerson, Lake & Palmer, they did not have enough songs for the album. Lake suggested to record this song, but Emerson did not like it and left. So Palmer and Lake recorded the song together and when Emerson came back, he was amazed by the song they had put together. He wanted to play on the song now and played with the Mooc synthesizer, a solo which went down in history as a legendary solo. The song made it to number 48 in the US. Enjoy
