The news broke earlier today that legendary progressive rock pioneer Greg Lake had passed away yesterday at the age of 69 from cancer. Lake gained prominence as a founding member of the progressive rock bands King Crimson and ELP, both of which were huge influences on Rush. Geddy Lee posted the following comments on Lake's passing via his geddyimages Instagram page this afternoon:

We've lost yet another great artist and talented bassist...What a devastating year 2016 has been... ELP were one of my faves ..first Keith Emerson and now Greg Lake. RIP boys....and thanks for the music... #GregLake #KeithEmerson #ELP
