Allthememberscame from well established groups: Greg Lake from King Crimson, Carl Palmer from Atomic Rooster, and KeithEmersonfrom TheNice.

ELP released ten albums during the seventies, the best of which are probably Tarkus and Brain SaladSurgery.Nearthe end of the seventies the band had big ego issues, and the music considerably worsened. The groupconstantly pushedtheirabilities to the limits, and even with the technological limitations of the ear, managed to break newground and setnewparametres in the emerging progressive music scene in Britain. After a long break, the band regrouped in the1990s, andtheirlast studio album, In The Hot Seat was released in 1994. « hide
