Carl Palmer

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - GAMBLING -

Among the pan­theon of drum­mers of the 1970s, right next to Keith Moon, John Bon­ham and Char­lie Watts, stands Carl Palmer, who helped cre­ate the tem­plate for pro­gres­sive rock with a style apart from the blues-based sound that de­fined the era. As a mem­ber of Emer­son, Lake and Palmer, he pro­vided mus­cle and un­com­mon sen­si­tiv­ity to the am­bi­tious mu­sic writ­ten by revered key­boardist Keith Emer­son (who took his cues from Aaron Co­p­land for ELP’s “Fan­fare for the Com­mon Man”), and be­came fa­mous for ex­tended, high-ve­loc­ity drum so­los (see his seven-minute ram­ble on “Tank”) long be­fore they were the sub­ject of par­ody. As the author­i­ties at Drum­ ob­served: “This was play­ing … of a kind with which jazz lis­ten­ers were fa­mil­iar, and clas­si­cal au­di­ences could un­der­stand, but it com­pletely daz­zled rock au­di­ences.” Emer­son died in March, and Palmer will per­form two shows in South Florida on a trib­ute tour called Re­mem­ber­ing Keith and the Mu­sic of Emer­son, Lake & Palmer. He will be joined by guitarist Steve Hack­ett of Ge­n­e­sis and Vanilla Fudge key­boardist Mark Stein. When: 8 p.m. Fri­day, June 24 Where: Olympia The­ater, 174 E.
