About Carl Palmer
Drummer Carl Palmer is considered to be one of the most prolific rock drummers ever, and he
has played in countless rock bands, including Asia, Atomic Rooster, ELP, and more. This brilliant performer first started
exploring his interest in music at a young age. Born into a musical family, Palmer was immersed in music, and when he was
11 years old, he received his first drum set. For several years, Palmer honed his talents under the direction of instructor
Tommy Cunliffe. By age 14, Palmer had scored his first gig with a band, and he went on to play with the Mecca Dance Band for
a short while.
A few years later, Carl Palmer began playing with Chris Farlowe and the Thunderbirds, and later with
the English psychedelic rock band, the Crazy World of Arthur Brown. After his time with the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Palmer
went on to form the band Atomic Rooster. It was with Atomic Rooster where the rest of the world really saw Carl Palmer's incredible
talent. After releasing their self-titled debut album, it reached the number 49 position on the chart in the U.K., and fans
couldn't get enough of Palmer's dazzling skills.
In 1970, Carl Palmer's career took another turn when he was recruited
by members of a band looking for a new drummer. After their first jam session together, the band was blown away and he was
immediately offered the gig. The band later became known as Emerson, Lake & Palmer, or "ELP." Along with Carl Palmer,
this supergroup combined the talents of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, and they went on to become one of the most successful
rock bands of the 1970s. With millions of records sold worldwide, Carl Palmer was thrust to fame during his time with ELP.
After ELP disbanded, Carl Palmer joined another supergroup, Asia, which ushered in a new world of success for Palmer.
