Sad loss.
I particularly liked his vocals on 'court of the crimson king'...

Agreed.

Me too, even our resident Grandad (Phil!) is familiar with Greg Lake's vocals.... he patiently listened to 21st Century Schizoid Man at least 8 times in a row once at a Phil-Fest,

Greg Lake , it's a shame, loved his work with King Crimson as Thomas rightly says.
