In the lavish, fully illustrated book, Emerson’s family, friends, colleagues, and fans talk to author Chris Welch about his life, work, and legacy.

Illustrated throughout with previously unseen photos, the book tells the remarkable tale of Keith’s musical evolution, his personal relationships, and the creation of his astounding musical legacy. It includes new interviews with Keith’s children, ex-wife, close personal friends, Mari Kawaguchi, Carl Palmer, Rick Wakeman, Lee Jackson, Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter, Alan White, Dave Kilminster, Marc Bonilla, Rachel Flowers, Darius Brubeck, and Geoff Downes among others.

“Keith Emerson” celebrates the life and legacy of the man who first played the Hammond organ like a lead guitarist, introduced the European classical music tradition to rock fans with The Nice and helped create the template for prog rock with the very first Moog synthesizers with ELP.
