ROCK | Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy

Back in the 1970's, when music was religion, Emerson, Lake, and Palmer were the God, Jesus, and Joseph of progressive rock. Ok, maybe Carl Palmer was the Holy Ghost. Either way, Palmer is considered to be one of the all-time greatest drummers; even Rolling Stone magazine ranks him among the top 10. Coming up with The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Palmer co-founded both ELP and Asia, the 80's progressive pop supergroup. Among his current projects is Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy, an instrumental power-trio that not only pays tribute but also blurs the lines with classically trained players Paul Bielatowicz (guitar) and Simon Fitzpatrick (bass). Sure enough, it rocks.

All ticket proceeds from this show will benefit the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children.

Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy performs on Saturday, July 12, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water Street. 8 p.m. $20-$25. 325-5600;;
