The death of keyboardist Keith Emerson is currently being investigated as a suicide, the Santa Monica Police confirmed to Billboard.
The piano player had been depressed as a result of a nerve problem that affected his right hand and severely impaired his ability to play the keyboard. Still, he was slated to perform next week in Japan.
