Yes to both of those.

He was a part of King Crimson for their 1969 album "In The Court Of The Crimson King". The group went through a complete line-up change after that, and Lake moved on to form ELP with Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer.

I like his versatility most. He can sing both mellow ballads and exciting rock 'n' roll very well. I particularly like his contributions to ELP albums:

I loved when he sang on Pictures at an Exhibition

"From seeds of confusion, illusion, dark blossoms have grown"

Their lyricist was amazing, I forget his name, but wasnt he the clarinet player from King Crimson?

Definitely Greg Lake :rockon:

Definitely NOT Tom Waits :laughing:

King Crimson lyricist Pete Sinfield did write some songs for ELP. That's all I know about other KC members contributing to ELP. I think Greg Lake wrote most of their lyrics.

Yeah, Pete Sinfield is who I'm thinking of.

Haha, Tom Waits was a joke. Although have you ever seen him perform Chocolate Jesus? There's a video of it on youtube. I always viewed him as a joke, but I think I'm actually starting to become a fan of his!
