(Classic Rock) Keith Emerson has revealed he's considering retirement as he turns 70. Hopes for an ELP reunion are all-but gone after Greg Lake and Carl Palmer both dismissed the suggestion.

But the keyboardist's comments might be the final word. Speaking ahead of a Moogfest appearance alongside synth pioneer Robert Moog, Emerson tells the Citizen-Times: "I've reached my 70th year. This might be the last year that I'll actually perform in public."

ELP last played together at Classic Rock's High Voltage Festival in 2010. Drummer Palmer recently said of the show: "it wasn't the greatest we've done but the crowd seemed to like it. I think it was good that we said goodbye." more on this story
