Wiki

Carl Palmer (born Carl Frederick Kendall Palmer, 20 March 1950, Handsworth, Birmingham) is an English drummer and percussionist. He is credited as one of the most respected rock drummers to emerge from the 1960s. In addition, Palmer is a veteran of a number of famous English bands, including the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Atomic Rooster, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Asia. He has also contributed to works by Mike Oldfield.

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown was begun, predictably, perhaps, by a musician by the name of Arthur Brown. The drummer of the Crazy World of Arthur Brown was originally an artist by the name of Drachen Theaker. However, Theaker had the misfortune to suffer from a very serious case of fear of flying. This meant he could not tour with his bandmates when the time arrived for them to tour overseas. Thus, Theaker was the drummer on the band's eponymous album, but afterward, Palmer took his place as the band's drummer, and became a permanent member of the band.

Following his departure from the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Palmer joined up with Vincent Crane to form a new band, Atomic Rooster. Palmer played on just one album before departing.
