Keith Emerson Has Passed Away

It has come to my attention that Keith Emerson passed away yesterday in Santa Monica, CA. We all know who he is and his influence in the world of synthesizers. Below are just a handful of videos including Bob Moog introducing Keith Emerson and his mighty Moog modular, Keith going over the system back in 1993, the introduction of Keith's 50th Anniversary Moog Modular reissued by Moog Music, Fanfare for the Common Man featuring the mighty Yamaha GX1, and finally the classic Lucky Man.

Few musicians will have the impact Keith Emerson has in our world of synthesizers. He will be sorely missed.

Update: tributes from Moog Music and The Bob Moog Foundation:
