Carl Palmer has once again proved why he was the drummer in Emerson, Lake & Palmer and not the singer and guitarist.

As a tribute to the late Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, he posted a video of him playing acoustic guitar while singing their first single, “Lucky Man,” off their 1970 self-titled debut album.

While some of his fans were complimentary of the performance, others weren’t so enthusiastic.

 

  • “Carl, stick to the drums!”
  • “Hey Carl…well done…for a drummer.”
  • “DON’T QUIT YOUR NIGHT JOB…”

In May, Palmer posted a video of himself attempting to play the guitar and sing Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind” as a birthday present to his better half, Katie. He says she is a Dylan fan and “likes this song in particular.”

One could only hope she did.

Palmer will honor the 50th anniversary of ELP next year on a tour that will have him and his band, Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy, performing with Emerson and Lake on film
