Carl Palmer

Carl Palmer of Atomic Rooster

69.Carl and Vincent arrived back in the UK to form Atomic Rooster after departing from The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown at the end of a U.S. tour. Even as a young 19 year old, Carl was already an experienced drummer having played with The Thunderbirds and Crazy World. A Jazz influenced drummer Carl had an all-action style, his drum solos worth the ticket price alone. Carl has two co-writes on the 1st LP and after its recording, toured with Rooster, first with Nick on bass and then John on guitar, this being the "progressive" facet of Rooster music.
By June '70, Carl had left to join Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, to form Emerson, Lake and Palmer, playing his last Rooster gig on May 31st.
