I am fan of ELP. I always thought they great musicians. Keith Emerson was known for some crazy onstage antics. He would pull out knives (he had two) and stab at his organ, to sustain a note. When he was done he would through them into his Leslie cabinet. The blades would dull pretty quick and if they weren't sharpen they would bounce off the cabinet. There was one time Keith threw the knife and it ricocheted off the cabinet and the knife went directly into his roadie's leg. Ouch! That's gotta hurt.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Knife Edge / Rondo / Drum Solo - Live 1970 - Remastered


In the early days of Genesis they would go to see ELP in concert. They saw Kieth do onstage did what I just described. In fact they actually named the The Knife after the knife in Kieth's knife act. Believe it or not the person who gave those two knives to Keith Emerson was Lemmy Kilmister. So whenever I hear The Knife I feel Lemmy somehow lives on in spirit in that song, because it was his knife originally.

So if you are going to get serious about the best Genesis a la ELP song it would have to be The Knife.

Genesis - The Knife
Can you verify this. Trespass was released before ELP’s debut album. Doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Lemmy was a roadie for the Nice and as I’m sure you know Emerson was in The Nice. Are you thinking of the Nice or ELP?

You just don't wanna admit my review was spot on.

But for realz, I think Trespass is brilliant. Anthony Phillips just brings so much to the proceedings.

The working title for The Knife was "Nice" so had to be them. Keith carry part of his act over from the Nice to ELP, and I guess after seeing concert footage of ELP I mixed up who Genesis saw. The other part is true where Lemmy gave Keith the two knives.

I think I know what it is even before clicking on the video. That came back to haunt him. He said when he would meet people they would say "oh you're the guy who spun around in the air with the piano." And then he would be left feeling salty cause they didn't say anything about his playing.

Neap (yeah I went there) there's no pleasing you, is there? You and I started overloading the other thread with Genesis stuff, so I start one where we can talk about Genesis and it's a "farce thread"? Seriously, just learn not to be such a moany ****er all the time and try to enjoy discussions about the bands you like, instead of crucifying me cos I hate Abacab. You're beyond pathetic, honestly. Get out of your bubble and join the conversation.

Btw, ELP suck.

That's cool. No need for the blown gasket, Charlie!
It's not without its charm; I just don't see it as a Genesis song, but you're entitled to your opinion. After all, Ant likes "Illegal Alien".
