For many in the musical world Carl Palmer is a name that needs no introduction. Like the idols that inspired Palmer to pick up the drums, Palmer too, would be among the legends like Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, and so many other drum gods! Born in Birmingham England, Carl Palmer was destined to become a musician whether by choice or not. Both grandparents were classically trained musicians as well as his parents with his mother being a concert Violinist like his grandmother and his father was a dancer, guitar player, and drummer. Fascinated with the drums Palmer would begin his training and study of the instrument at the young age of six and would continue to pursue the instrument well into his professional youth. By the time that Palmer had turned fourteen he would be in his first group known as The Mecca Dance Band and then at fifteen would join a motown styled rock group known as The Craig. These early years in the music scene would invariably craft his professionalism so that in just three to four years time, Palmer would be working with Mick Jagger to produce the band the Thunderbirds and then his greatest achievement in his early years, landing the drummer position for Arthur Brown's project The Crazy World of Arthur Brown were his success was met with strained friendships and artistic flare ups in creative direction. The time would be a huge learning point for Palmer as it also taught the young drummer virtuoso showmanship and theatrical implication for his future endeavors later down the line. From the wild time with Arthur Brown, Palmer's next band was one made up of former Arthur Brown keyboardist Vincent Crane would create the wonderfully charming Atomic Rooster. The group would also become a success in the progressive musical rock scene but would only last for a short while as another, more creatively exciting opportunity would be right around the corner for Palmer. While working on Atomic Rooster Palmer would get a phone call from Keith Emerson asking him to audition for his new group with King Crimson's front man Greg Lake. Reluctant at first, Palmer wanted to continue his young group that he had just put together but when the first rehearsal went in an almost magically amazing way, Palmer folded up shop and joined what would forever be known as Emerson, Lake, and Palmer.
The newly formed group immediately gained recognition and was hailed in the media as a "Super Group" for all three members had not only created the scene of the late sixties early seventies 'Prog Rock' movement, but also had been a part in groups individually that wowed audiences and music fans alike. The group would go on to change the music scene for true rock fans and music lovers but invariably pop music would push the group's music aside and as the band broke up in the 1980's, Palmer would join his next supergroup "Asia" which again would go on to become legends in the next evolution of Prog Rock.
Carl Palmer's music has influenced generations of musicians the world over. From Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, to Asia, and beyond Carl Palmer's music has spanned four decades and some his most amazing are still listened to today! Songs like "Lucky Man" and "Take a Pebble" are still hailed as some of the most innovating songs in rock history!
