One of the founding fathers of progressive rock, British musician Greg Lake died on Wednesday after a long and stubborn battle with cancer.  The news comes nine months after Lake's band-mate Keith Emerson died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Lake was given his first guitar at the age of 12 and formed a close friendship with fellow student Robert Fripp, with whom he created King Crimson in 1969.  A year later he joined with Emerson and Atomic Rooster drummer Carl Palmer to form ELP a band which combined heavy rock riffs with a classical influence.  They scored hit albums with Pictures at an Exhibition, Trilogy and Brain Salad Surgery - all produced by Lake.

In October 1998, 36 years later, he returned to space as Payload Specialist on a space shuttle mission, becoming the oldest person to go into space at the age of 77.
