King Crimson and Emerson, Lake and Palmer's Greg Lake passes away aged 69

Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake and Palmer and King Crimson has today passed away at the age of 69.

An iconic figure in the 70s prog scene, Lake is responsible for some of the genre's most significant records and will be sorely missed.

Lake's manager Stewart Young wrote on Facebook: "Yesterday, December 7th, I lost my best friend to a long and stubborn battle with cancer. Greg Lake will stay in my heart forever, as he has always been."

Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett also paid tribute on Twitter: "Music bows its head to acknowledge the passing of a great musician and singer, Greg Lake."

"Another sad loss with the passing of Greg Lake," added Rick Wakeman, keyboardist in pro rock band Yes.

Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
