TMZ is reporting that Keith Emerson’s death is being investigated as a suicide. Damn it!
They reported that he had a degenerative nerve issue that was taking away his ability to play the keyboard and as a result he’d been suffering from depression. They also say his death was caused by a gun shot to the head.
There isn’t a lot to the story, but you can read it here.
If this is true then it makes the whole thing 100000 times worse. Couldn’t he have died in his sleep, surrounded by close friends and family the way he deserved? Damn it!
