Greg Lake (from Emerson Lake & Palmer) -one of my early heros and the single most person who really inspired me to play guitar every day, was in San Fransisco at the Regency Ballroom - a fun historic venue.
Its been a while - I used to see Greg lake regularly back in the day - you might even say I was addicted to ELP and Greg's way of creating music...
WOW what a great show - Greg started the show with the intense 21st century scitzoidman - and closed the show with "Welcome back my frineds", and played everythign in between. His voice was smooth and poweful and sounded fantastic as did his backing tracks and guitar tones. I had a great balcony seat right over stage right. He played and taled with the audiance for 3 hours - breaking the show with Q&A which was very informativ and intimate.
More.... and a bit about the show:
Greg Lake's autobiography Lucky Man is out and he has taken the show on the road. Writing the book, Lucky Man, gave birth to the show, but the show is not the book. Fans have sparked to the intimate, autobiographical Songs of a Lifetime experience as each audience takes a different journey with Greg Lake every night to standing ovations. Lucky Man is the autobiography you have been waiting for. Read by the author, here are the tales of his extraordinary life of song and music and the people who inspired Greg.
