Rock legend Keith Emerson dies – Reactions

Keith Emerson, virtuoso keyboardist and founder of prog-rock band Emerson, Lake and Palmer, has died aged 71.

Emerson’s longtime partner, Mari Kawaguchi, alerted police in Santa Monica, California of an emergency at the couple’s home early Friday morning.

Emerson suffered from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head and authorities are investigating a possible suicide.

Emerson will be remembered for his work with the mammoth rock group with whom he recorded six platinum-selling albums in the 1970s.
