commented on Letter to the Editor: Please Don't Come to Spokane
haha sweetie ..."My grandparents have lived here since the 1940s, and I moved here to be with them". Let's be honest: No one *ever* moves to be with their grandparents—except someone who expects them to kick it soon & inherit their house. Good on you, I hope your masquerade works.

Thanks for the solo "Lucky Man" link, hadn't heard that b4. Really does highlight Lake's clarion-clear, gorgeous voice & beautiful acoustic guitar style. I love ELP's first album, incl The Barbarian that takes off from Bartok's piano piece Allegro Barbaro. Lake's stunning playing & singing on the lovely "From The Beginning" from Trilogy is another high point. Tarkus & Trilogy are both loaded with quality songs, and even the slightly outrageous arrangement of Pictures At An Exhibition—with vocals added—mostly works in a trippy, fun way (unlike Rick Wakeman's uninspired arrangement of a fragment of Brahm's 4th Symphony on Yes's otherwise stellar Fragile album). R.I.P. Greg Lake!
