Carl Palmer, former drummer with the likes of Atomic Rooster, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, ASIA and Emerson, Lake & Palmer brings his own band to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts on Thursday 27 February.
Known for being a ‘drummer’s drummer’, a consummate professional, a brilliant technician and a dynamic showman, he has thrilled listeners and audiences alike for nearly four decades with some of music’s most memorable bands. Along the way his dazzling speed and mastery of the drums, combined with his infectious stage personality, have secured for him a respected place in history as one of Rock and Roll’s greatest drummers.
In 2006, Carl regrouped for the long awaited reunion of the original ASIA line-up, with Steve Howe, Geoff Downes and John Wetton. The band has done five world tours and recorded two new studio albums PHOENIX, released on Frontiers and EMI Records in 2008, and Omega, released in the Spring of 2010.
Says Palmer: "I have the best of both worlds now. I have an active schedule with The Carl Palmer Band, and I continue to tour and record the original line up of ASIA. It is very satisfying and gratifying to know the fans are still out there and willing to support and enjoy the music I create. I hope to keep doing this for many more years to come."
