In this exclusive interview edit, Carl Palmer chats about progressive rock music (2:00)
Carl Palmer releases a CD/DVD on 29 June (via BMG) celebrating the lives of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake. “Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy Live” features a CD of a concert recorded in New York in 2014. The accompanying DVD was recorded a few months after Emerson’s untimely death in 2016 and became a tribute to the former ELP keyboard player. Greg Lake passed away later that year.
To coincide with this release Get Ready to ROCK!’s David Randall chatted to Carl about his career and latest band incarnation. The hour special includes tracks from ELP and Asia and some of Carl Palmer’s side-projects.
David says: “We saw Carl performing last November at the HRH Prog event and hoped to catch up at some point for a chat. Carl immediately answered one of our main queries: the lack of keyboard in the current band line-up. But we also discussed other aspects including his work in Asia and subsequently.”
“The Eclectic Mix: Carl Palmer Special” is broadcast on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio on Sunday 17 June at 18:00 GMT. Repeated Monday 18 June 16:00 GMT and Thursday 21 June, 22:00
