In Reply to: Origin? - Welcome to the show that never ends... posted by Gary on April 04, 2003
: : What is the origin of the phrase:" Welcome to the show that never ends." ? Please email any ideas to my email account also please.
: In a previous life I was a recording engineer and, for my sins, worked on all of Emerson, Lake and Palmer's albums (I could tell stories that would frighten livestock). Anyway, I recall, and at that volume its hard not to recall, a line from their show's opening song - "Welcome my friends to the show that never ends". I've not much doubt that Greg Lake nicked this from somehwere else but just maybe he coined it himself.
Including "Pictures At An Exhibition"? It's a very brave man that's prepared to admit this.
