English musician Keith Emerson died in Santa Monica, California, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after he had become “depressed, nervous and anxious” because nerve damage in his hands had hampered his playing. Emerson found his first commercial success with the Nice, in the late 1960s and was a founding member of Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP), one of the early progressive rock supergroups.
