Sorry Bill, all I got was the dominoes again!     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Same here Bill - Dominoes

Dominoes here also, Bill ... is this the vid you were recommending?

Greg was a singular talent throughout his career, and his singing of "Epitaph" and "Karn Evil 9" are some of my all-time favorites.

Re: Greg Lake Talks ABout His J200

Yes, that's the one, thanks. Guess I watched too many domino vids and didn't capture the correct url for Greg. There's also a short concert version of Greg and his band (not ELP) doing "Pictures At An Exhibition", which he wrote words for.

"Pictures..." is from an original work by Russian composer Modest Mussorksky in 1874. It's what is known as a "tone poem" - meaning the music shows you the "Pictures" you are looking at. For instance, the selection "The Great Gate Of Kiev" is recognizable by the "majesty" of the music. To get an appreciation of Greg's version and lyrics, the orchestral version as composed by Mussorgsky serves as a great introduction to those so inclined to listen.

This (unless it's more dominoes) is the Greg Lake version:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pYVzZG9B2c

Pretty cool .....  I like how it changes from his acoustic to the strat

Greg Lake's Christmas song is one of my faves
