An official from Los Angeles coroner’s office says the keyboardist from progressive rock group Emerson, Lake and Palmer – Keith Emerson, took his own life.
Rock fans who loved their music are shocked:
Los Angeles coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter said Tuesday the determination was made after an autopsy showed Emerson shot himself in the head. He says there were also signs the 71-year-old man had a heart condition.
Emerson’s body was found early Friday by his longtime partner.
Authorities suspected Emerson shot himself but the determination did not become official until after the autopsy.
