If this isn’t the most violent keyboard solo ever, I don’t know what is.
ELP’s Keith Emerson delivers the type of full-bodied solo that helped redefine the role of keyboards in rock.
Captured in Belgium in 1971, Emerson first throws the keyboard around and then drops it onto his body for a little simulated sex.
Then he stabs it a knife, plays a few wailing riffs, stabs it with more knives and jumps on it. Finally, Emerson throws a knife at his piano for good measure.
Don’t try this at home!
