check this clip of The Nice out, approx 3:30 or so


after stabbing and rocking his organ ( errr.... ) it dies on him

looks like he sticks his hand in there & wiggles the power tubes?

Ha ha - my '66 Bassman used to cut out like that when cranked up to stage volume, turned out to be a sketchy mains fuse cap.

Keith Emerson was an interesting character, to say the least - showmanship and excess all rolled into one. Remember him with ELP at Maple Leaf Gardens about '77 quaffing down a rather large french champagne straight from the bottle parked on his organ. Once the bottle was emptied, he proceeded to rock the Hammond to/fro until he had the whole thing leaning on him while he wailed on it (passage from Tarkus perhaps?).

RIP Keith - a true original and legend in the annals of rock.
