Welcome to Emerson, Lake & Palmer

I'd like to welcome all the fans and friends of Emerson, Lake & Palmer to this new all-encompassing website dedicated to history, music and legacy of ELP. This is another "official" band website - but the only one that is actually created and run by one of the band's founding members - and now - its only surviving musician.

While the band's long time official site ( will still have important news about the band's catalog as it becomes available, the goal of this site is to give the fans a living, breathing online center where they can encompass all aspects of ELP from the beginning to its final fanfare.

This site will be a work in progress, which I invite you to participate in. It will be designed to be interactive and allow the ELP community to meet and engage in the band's music, history and the amazing family of fans this band was able to build.

With both Keith and Greg now gone, it is up to myself to carry on the torch of ELP and the great music we created and performed. It is my intention to do this with my band as long as I can. The aim of this site is for the ELP community to come together take in all we accomplished as a musical unit.

As time goes on, we will be introducing several interactive aspects of the site. “ELP Memories” will be a sounding board where fans give post memories of ELP shows they attended; “I Met ELP” will allow fans to post their stories and photos of times when they met the various members of the band over the years; there will be rare ELP clips; photo galleries; essays on the various albums we released; and current news. I will also be posting updates on shows I am performing that will feature the ELP Legacy.

So, please visit this site often and give us your feedback on what you like, dislike or would like to see. It is a ongoing process but we are dedicated to keeping music of Emerson Lake ∓ Palmer alive.

Kind Regards,

Carl Palmer
