Carl Frederik Kendall Palmer was born on March 20, 1950, in Birmingham, England. His upbringing was far from smooth, his real father passed away when Carl was only two years old. Raised by his stepfather in a very music-minded family, Carl Palmer received his first drum on his 10th birthday and thus began a 60-year career that has seen Carl appear on a staggering 50-million-selling albums.

Now, BMG is proud to bring together Carl‘s impressive career across a box set featuring music and visuals from the Carl Palmer BandEmerson, Lake & PalmerAsia, and various other Carl Palmer-affiliated bands and artists, among them CraigChris FarloweAtomic Rooster and Mike Oldfield. The Blu-ray disc “The Rhythm Of Life” is an audio-visual documentary, narrated by Carl Palmer with live and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage featuring ELPAsiaCrazy World Of Arthur BrownCarl Palmer Band and ELP Legacy. Also included is a 200-page autobiography which is wonderfully illustrated with photos from Carl‘s personal archive.

Carl Palmer  is currently on tour in the USA with the acclaimed “Return Of Emerson Lake & Palmer” show, which combines rare footage of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake from ELP‘s 1992 Royal Albert Hall shows with Palmer and his Legacy band live on stage all playing together.

As Carl Palmer approaches his 74th birthday, he shows no sign of resting on his laurels. Aside from all his ELP-related work, Carl continues to make innovative art through his Carl Palmer “Art Of Giving” foundation, raising large sums of money for charity in the process.
