Keith Emerson is a God on the keyboard, piano,and synthesizer. He even plays two at the same time at live performances and in songs like Trilogy.
Greg Lake uses bass and is amazing in creating good synchronizations and bass-lines. Also his voice is very clear and can change pitch very smoothly.
Carl Palmer can create complicated drum beats and keep them in rhythm.
The band is very talented yet not many people know about them today, probably because they didn't have guitar (they were amazing without it) so stupid preps weren't all over them and screaming about them.
They are Gods so I recommend listening to Knife-Edge cause if you're the average person you will like it.
ELP fan: That's synthesizer not guitar.
prep: It doesn't sound like the background music of rap songs.
ELP fan: Yeah, the person playing the synthesizer has talent. And the singer can pronounce Cadillac right.
ELP is a british progressive rock group formed in 1970 by Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer. To this day they have sold over 30 million albums. Their biggest success was the album Brain Salad Surgery in 1973. A very different sound when compared to other prog. rock bands from their time. Also known for their outstanding and crazy live shows.
Prog Fan: Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Every aspiring drummer should listen to Carl Palmer's awexome drum solo on Tank.
Fanfare for the Common Man, Lucky Man, Knife Edge, Tank, Karn Evil 9.
