Palmer, who was voted by ROLLING STONE as one of the 10 Greatest Drummers of All Time, is also a founding member of ASIA. Since he began in the business in the 1960s Carl Palmer has sold over 50 million records! He has worked with Atomic Rooster; The Crazy World of Arthur Brown; Emerson Lake & Palmer and ASIA.
Since 2001, Carl has fronted a 3 piece power trio: guitar, bass & drums doing the classically driven rock hits of ELP with NO KEYBOARDS. (Imagine ELP with Steve Vai or Joe Satriani in the band instead of Keith Emerson). Carl Palmer has totally reinvented the music of ELP with this trio, which tours regularly around the world, including 9 hugely successful North & South American tours. CURRENTLY BOOKING FALL 2016.

“The harder, more modern-edged band, with the veteran Palmer’s relentless drumming at the fore, offered furious takes on some of ELP’s most progressive instrumental numbers.” - The Denver Post
“Palmer has recruited two expert musicians to ensure that this trio will never disappoint. The world’s elite drummer must surround himself with the best sidemen and he certainly has. A legend has to live up to his legacy and Palmer did on this night.” - Review Fix
“Progressive rock does not get any better than this...” -Rust Belt Chronicles.
