I know it dates me, but I remember as a teenager seeing Nice playing the Newcastle City Hall in the late 60's when Keith played America by Leonard Bernstein on the famous organ, there was dust blowing out the pipes like it was a steam locomotive .
It was a great venue back in the day with the likes of Lindisfarne calling it their home from home.

Glad I'm not the only one to remember the Nice.

Having older brothers that were music crazy at this time, the Nice were played a lot on the old record player with "expert" teenage boys analyzing every aspect of their music!

Sad situation, RIP Keith Emerson

I remember the fold-out LP sleeve on my copy of Brain Salad Surgery. I used to like the old album artwork we used to get when we had proper records.

Brain Salad was a perpendicularly rememberable sleeve.
