Keith Emerson, membru fondator Emerson, Lake and Palmer s-a sinucis

Keith Emerson, claparul si membru fondator al formatiei Emerson, Lake and Palmer s-a sinucis pentru ca ii era teama sa nu isi dezamageasca fanii.

Cel putin asa sustine prietena sa, Mari Kawaguchi. Artistul a avut o serie de probleme care i-au afecat mobilitatea mainii drepte, lucru ce si-a lasat amprenta pe stilul sau de cantat.

Emerson urma sa aiba o serie de concerte in Japonia, fiind foarte ingrijorat cu privire la faptul ca ar putea sa-si dezamageasca fanii, mai ales dupa ce mai multi fani au avut comentarii de genul 'I wish he would stop playing'.

Artistul avea 71 de ani. Iata ce a spus Mari Kawaguchi cu privire la incident:

"His right hand and arm had given him problems for years. He had an operation a few years ago to take out a bad muscle but the pain and nerve issues in his right hand were getting worse.

He had concerts coming up in Japan and even though they hired a back-up keyboard player to support him, Keith was worried.

He read all the criticism online and was a sensitive soul. Last year he played concerts and people posted mean comments such as, 'I wish he would stop playing.'

He was tormented with worry that he wouldn't be good enough. He was planning to retire after Japan.

He didn't want to let down his fans. He was a perfectionist and the thought he wouldn't play perfectly made him depressed, nervous and anxious."
