The problem with Emerson Lake

March 18th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Hunting for ELP information over the years has always been a slog. In the early 80’s I used to scour newspapers, magazines and libraries for any scraps of information I could find on ELP.

Being a generation too young I missed the early 70’s and did all this in the early 80’s after the band had split and the (always negative) British Music press were banging on about how punk changed the world (yea for about 2 weeks possibly and then they all disappeared into obscurity again), how brilliant Spandau Ballet’s clothes were and how exotic and expensive Duran’s Durans videos were.

There were a few ‘hardliners’ that I came across  who were dedicated to the cause and we shared whatever information we could get.

It is now an incredible irony that in this 2010  tour we are searching for information on Emerson Lake. The problem is that search engines (despite what Google and Bing have you believe) are still pretty crap. They really aren’t that clever at all such that I found myself searching for Emerson Lake and find a lot of information about watery lakes in the US. (surely a good enough reason for everyone to adopt the Scottish version of Lake and use Loch and we would all understand what we mean;-)).

I decided that I would try and clarify where the Emerson Lakes are for a bit of nonsensical and irrelevant fun. So here is what I found. If you have anything else to add please let me know

Emerson Lake, Allegan County, Michigan
Emerson Lake Fishing in Mason County, Michigan
Emerson Lake Fishing in Collin County, Texas
Emerson Lake San Bernardino County, California
Emerson Lake in Watonwan County, MN
Emerson Lake Inn – a restaurant in Walhalla, MI
Emerson Lake – Clark County, Wisconsin

What if they played an outdoor gig at each venue?
Emerson Lake do a tour of Emerson Lakes playing Emerson Lake compositions.
Ha Let see how the search engines deal with that!

    Not sure if this is true, but I once heard that there is a body of water called Emerson Lake in Palmer, Massachusetts
