I must have been 9 or 10 years old when I first heard Epitaph on the radio. Of course back then I did not understood one word of English, but the song stayed with me because of its haunting mood. I didn’t transition into “serious music listener” till I heard (and bought) Brain Salad Surgery by Emerson. Lake and Palmer. I did not know it at the time, but I had become a Prog Rock fan for life.
So when I found out that Greg Lake left this plane of life, I felt a bit of my of my childhood die with it. I am still amazed how much music back them was so important to the person I became.
I know a lot of people are playing songs from ELP and Asia, but I just want to celebrate him with the song that maybe initiated me into the ranks of the weirdo kids that listened to even weirder albums.
