I've just learned that Greg Lake is the latest celeb to be welcomed through the pearly gates by St Peter: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment_and_arts
It has just been mentioned on Drivetime.
What a year it has been. All these famous people I've grown up watching on TV and / or hearing on radio now gone forever, also my dear father back in May.
My three words on December 31st will be GOOD RIDDANCE 2016!

Sad news indeed. The Court Of The Crimson King, from 1969, was probably the first and best prog rock album.
