Hello Everyone!

I am now very fortunate to be at home with the family enjoying the summer as I am sure all of you are. It's been a great year so far with CPL (Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy) having played thirty concerts. There is another twenty date tour coming up in November followed by Europe. I have been catching up with friends and having a BBQ with the family, all great stuff!

ASIA is next on the list: September / October – USA / UK all very exciting.

I am just back from a weeks touring with CPL in the USA and playing some dates with Procol Harum which went unbelievably well.

Also the "Rhythm of Light" art collection has been received very well by you all. For those who don't know, this is my new art collection. I had a great experience in Rochester, NY with Bob Brenna, my lawyer and long time friend. We had an evening at Bob's house with about fifteen of our real good friends we have gathered over the years. This was to raise money from the RHYTHM of LIGHT art collection for the charity "Camp Good Days and Special Times Flood Relief". This all went exceptionally well and I would like to thank everyone involved. Bruce Pilato, my manager, was on top form organising the event with Bob and his wife Judy and Lori Pilato.

CPL also managed to do a charity concert for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Rochester, NY.

As many of you know, H R Giger died earlier this year which was very sad. I am a big fan of his work. Brain Salad Surgery was my favourite album cover, designed by Giger, from the ELP days. I decided to dedicate a piece of my artwork to the great man, KNIFE EDGE, which was from the first ELP album and a favourite track of Giger's. This is the only artwork in my collection I have had framed in a gothic type frame and it has an accompanying authenticating letter. There will be only 9 pieces produced in this way which is Photographic Fine Art generated by Light and with hand painted brush strokes which I have developed with Scene Four and created just for this edition.

Some other news: one of our daughters – Carissa, who is a Lawyer – is getting married to Sam next year! They informed us this weekend. (I told you we were having some good BBQ's – easy on the salsa !!!!!!!)

Wishing you all a great summer. See you in September.

Carl

From the Miami Herald, Asia, ELP drummer Carl Palmer puts the art in rock

"[...] In a field known for vibrant characters, Carl Palmer may be the most colorful drummer of them all.
A founding member of '70s progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer and '80s rock supergroup Asia, the Birmingham, England-born Palmer will premiere his new art collection, Rhythm of Light, at Miami Beach's Effusion Art Gallery.
The 16 images in the exhibit were created using a photographic process in which Palmer plays his drums in a pitch black, 12-square-foot room, using custom LED florescent drum sticks. As stick hits drum or cymbal, a burst of light forms a pattern, and the visual images are captured on canvas. [...]" Read the entire article here.

From ProgressiveRockCentral.com: The Multiple Sides of Rock Drumming Icon Carl Palmer

"Do Ya Wanna Play, Carl? is a two CD compilation of music by legendary rock drummer that was originally released only in the UK in 2001. The new expanded version contains additional tracks. Do Ya Wanna Play, Carl? spans several decades and various musical genres. Disc 1 focuses on the symphonic side of Carl Palmer, with the extensive 'Concerto for Percussion' by Carl Palmer and Joseph Horowitz. The rest of the disc features a selection of Emerson Lake and Palmer (ELP) cuts from the Works album. Carl Palmer gets to show his admirable skill as a world class drummer in the pieces selected.

Concert Review: Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy @ Poole Lighthouse, 27th February, 2014.

This is to urge all Planet Rock listeners to seize the chance to see Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy next time they tour. I saw them @ Poole Lighthouse last week and they were outstanding — So many highlights: Knife Edge, Jerusalem, 21st Century Schizoid Man, Trilogy, America, Pictures at an Exhibition, Fanfare for the Common Man... to name but a few! I expected a virtuoso performance from Carl Palmer – and he certainly produced one! – though I was not expecting to be kept spellbound by a solo bass rendition of Shine on You Crazy Diamond (yes,really!) from the brilliant Simon Fitzpatrick; or to have sounds conjured from Paul Bielatowicz's guitar that made me completely forget that there were no keyboards on stage.

If your idea of a great night out is to hear genuine virtuosos clearly enjoying themselves, reinterpreting some of the most imaginative classic rock ever written, you really need to check out this incredible power trio.

Carl's update from the Twist of the Wrist UK tour

Hello Everyone. We just started our UK Tour in Hull at The Fruit on Friday, followed by The Rock and Blues Festival at Skegness on Saturday where there was a great crowd of around 1500 people. We are now going back into rehearsals to take a look at two pieces for the tour that we haven't played before and if this works out Simon will be playing the Stick on a piece of music that the BBC banned many years ago called Jerusalem. Well known to all ELP fans and one of my favourite pieces. I also wanted to play the piece of music that was probably the first piece of music ELP played together in our initial rehearsals, which believe it or not was Schizoid Man.

A New Year's Message From Carl Palmer.....

As we embark on a new year, I want to thank all of my fans, associates and friends for their support during 2013. It was a fantastic year, with many great shows by my ELP Legacy band, and the creation of a new ASIA album, Gravitas, due this coming spring. In addition, I embarked in a new phase of my career, with my Twist Of The Wrist Fine Art collection, which, I am happy to say is nearly sold out.

2014 should be even more exciting! Here is some of what you can expect in the coming year.....

In January my band is looking forward to a headlining show at the Progressive Rock Festival in Rio DeJanerio, Brazil, and in February we embark on our extensive UK tour. In March and April we will be among the featured artists on both the MONSTERS OF ROCK and MOODY BLUES / ROGER DALTREY BACK TO THE ISLE OF WIGHT cruises, and we are presently putting together tours of North and South America and Europe for the second half of 2014. In addition, ASIA will return to Japan and the UK in June, and North America later in 2014.

I am very happy to announce three official Carl Palmer products will be released worldwide in March, 2014. Music Video Distributors (MVD) will be issuing our new concert DVD – Decade – The 2011 10th Anniversary Tour featuring my current band with guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick. Also being released at the same time on DVD will be the art film I made with Andrew Cross in the UK, The Solo. And last, but not least, MVD will be re-issuing and updated and expanded version of &ndashl DO YA WANNA PLAY, CARL? – THE CARL PALMER ANTHOLOGY two CD set.

Our partners in Los Angeles, Scene 4 Art, will be releasing my second collection of Fine Art, which is still to be named. Look for that to premiere in the Spring of 2014.

So, there is plenty to look forward to this year, and I hope to see all of you on the road at some point. Thanks again for a great 2013, and my best wishes to you for a happy new year.

Carl Palmer,
January 1, 2014

Carl Palmer attends UK National Drum Fair

"It was another great weekend at the National Drum Fair, in my home town Birmingham, and it was nice to see some new faces. This is the 11th year and the fair continues to attract more stalls and visitors alike.

As always, there were some interesting drum sets of a very high standard on display. And, if you wanted that special part you have been looking for years, you will more than likely find it among the stalls this weekend. That's for sure.

I visited the show on Sunday and was fortunate to see Clark Tracey playing with his trio, which was really fantastic and also Pete Cater gave a great master class on technique. I had a good wander round the stalls and met people I only get to see at the fair.

A good time was had by all and the 'A' team did a great job as always. Yes, I am talking about Garry, Simon and Matt."

John Wetton, Geoff Downes and Carl Palmer are delighted to announce that not only do they have an incredible talent in place to step into Steve Howe's shoes, but also that their first international show with newcomer Sam Coulson will be a high profile performance at Sweden Rock 2013. Sam is a wonderful player, world-renowned amongst guitar virtuosos. Additionally, a new studio album, to be entitled 'Valkyrie', will be recorded for Frontiers Records during 2013 continuing the band's relationship with the label. Read the press release...
