Musicians
    (1967-1970)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Members were: Keith Emerson (keyboardist), Brian Davison (drummer), Lee Jackson (bassist) and David O'List (guitarist)
    Recorded 'The Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack,' 'Ars Longa Vita Brevis,' 'Nice,' 'Five Bridges' and 'Elegy'
    David O'List left after the first album and was never replaced.
    They were only together for three years.
    They burned the American flag while performing onstage.
    Leonard Bernstein disliked their instrumental version of his song 'America.'
    Lee Jackson was never much of a singer.
    Jackson and Davison formed another band, Refugee, that lasted one album before breaking up.
    They were one of the first rock bands to blend classical music with rock.
    They called their version of 'America' 'the first instrumental protest song.'
    Emerson was a flamboyant live performer, sticking knives in the keyboard to hold notes.
    Despite Emerson's antics, the band was never as self-indulgent as his next band, Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
    Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead was one of their roadies.
    They took their name from a song by the Small Faces, 'Here Come the Nice.'
    They reunited for several concerts in 2002.
    Brian Davison died of a brain tumor in 2008.
