Keith Emerson - reflections in progress

I'm still in shock.

I keep searching for information and commentary from people who knew him well, and what they say isn't pretty.

Ultimately, this incredibly gifted man ended up being a victim of that beast so many of us struggle with.

Depression.

Apparently, he had fought it for a long, long time, and was perhaps more sensitive to criticism than anyone knew.

Until it was too late.

This one really hurts. I pray for the repose of his soul.
