During live versions Keith would also sing the chorus (ooh what a Lucky Man...) but here for the studio version it sounds like Greg is both singing and playing guitar solo using multi tracks.

I love his voice and the songs he wrote. But when I listen to Lucky Man, I do get sad because I miss him. It is still hard to believe he is gone from us. Yes he lives through his music, but that music still reminds me of the man. I miss you Greg Lake as do many others.

And when Greg was created, she looked down and said "Perfect! There shall not be another like him." Greg brought so much joy with his voice, musicianship and presence (😍) but he was taken from us way too soon. He may not be with us mortals, but may he and his music not be forgotten. I for one blast The Gods, The Shame, King Crimson, ELP and his solo music that even my neighbors can hear, but I never received one complaint. Rest In Peace beautiful Greg.

Greg Lake has to be the most underrated singer...simple song? listen to the covers of this song...nobody comes close to the feel of Lake...Youtube does two things, it lets us know talent is overrated and underrated...Lake proves the later.

Its said he was only 12 years old when he wrote this.
The very first Concert I had ever seen 1974 or so Portland Rose Garden ELP it changed my life.
I sat house center of the floor between the first Quad set up of huge stacks of Marshal Amps 50 ' high a explosion of wonderful unforgettable Music that has lasted a life time, no Concert Compared until.
I saw Pink Floyd and then then Led Zeppelin in 76 I thought all Rock and Roll Shows had fire shooting out of the Guitars a Piano man rising from the stage spinning in the air with fire works or playing three key boards at once one with his foot and beating the crap out of one like the Who for affect that was Awesome it blew my mind now looking back at more Concerts than I can remember from Elvis to the Greatful Dead to Willie and Waylon getting on the bus with Willie back stage with Waylon or having a BBQ for BB King partying with these guys What a Strange trip its been Jerry Jeff Walker got arrested for driving North Bound on South Bound I 5 from a jig were he Sang Mr. Bojangles when it came out. Then Elvin Bishope the Beet Farmers Doc played slide Guitar like no other with a full long neck beer that slowly foamed at the crescendo of the song like a music Orgazam what a visual affect parted with Cheap Trick then Jimmy Buffet and I was a nobody from Salem Oregon a young kid with a bunch of great friends that Music changed his life enjoy and let it fill the air just watch out for the dark side and stay clear from the drugs they will eat your very soul so shine on my shinning little Star from a old guy who danced with the devil and got out alive barely with some skin of my teeth be careful some kinds of music can eat you alive

Launched ELP. literly..written by greg. lake, to super stardom. filled arenas by millions. this was genius, no group had electronic MOOG music like Keith emerson did. Listen. at end. all 3 guys were indepent later... sucessful. hard to do.expensive ideas with 64 piece orchestra, on road, when ELP was powerhouse,

He had white horses
And ladies by the score
All dressed in satin
And waiting by the door

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers
They made up his bed
A gold covered mattress
On which he was led

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars
For his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory
The people would sing

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

Nice to hear what happened in the studio. Keith converted it from a ballad to a rock song at the end and I don't know if that was the first time I ever heard a synth (probably was), but with the ending added on the song in the beginning of the 70s was a AMAZING thing.

Possibly I am going to make myself unpopular, but I am going to risk it anyway. Point no. 1 – I love Greg Lake his voice and his songs. He wrote and sung some unbelievably beautiful acoustic songs.
Take a Pebble, Oh Lucky Man, Still You turn me On, From The Beginning, Trilogy – for example.

Point no. 2. I also like some of Keith Emerson’s output. The piano playing on ‘Take a Pebble’ and ‘Trilogy’ being the prime examples.

However my personal point of view is that some of Greg Lake’s beautiful songs have in fact been ruined by Keith’s histrionic electronic keyboard additions towards the end of these songs. I suppose it is just a matter of taste. But it is not to my taste.

Watch the Grammy awards of today and realize what crap there is for music and talent today. There will never be an era like we had in the late 60's and 70's. Super group after super group. Progressive rock.. more talent than the world will ever see again.

Now we have Kanye West? Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber... I can't even name anyone else.. it has degraded beyond comprehension.

I am one of the fortunate ones that had the pleasure of seeing ELP twice. Greg Lake has always been one of my favorite vocalists, Carl Palmer and Keith Emerson musicians par excel-lance.

What a lucky generation we were, to be born just in time. Greg's book just came in the mail the other day. His voice (as on here) is all over it. He never lost his sense of humility no matter how high his star rose.

I think this song would work extremely well in an episode of 'Game of Thrones'. Perhaps we could start an online petition. It would go well with subject matter and be a fitting tribute to ELP.
