Ah...I am more with you now. Or more awake at any rate.  Yes, I am certainly familiar with Fanfare for The Common Man - I just hadn't realised Emerson, Lake and Palmer were the ones behind it.

Sadder still...apparently he shot himself. The coroner has officially ruled his death a suicide.

Yes.  I believe he had terrible arthritis, or some such, a dreadful thing for a pianist.
