Well, as we get closer to Christmas, I thought it might be a good idea leading up to the day, to highlight some of the classic Christmas rock songs that we play this time of year on 99.1 The Whale.

For today, Wednesday December 20th, let's remember another rock legend we lost just over a year ago - December 7th, 2016 - Greg Lake. Greg passed away from cancer on that day. He was only 69.

Greg performed with Emerson, Lake and Palmer as well as many solo efforts. One of those songs include I believe in Father Christmas. Greg released the song in 1975 while he was still with Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

For today's Classic Rock Christmas Pick, watch this great version of I Believe in Father Christmas featuring Greg Lake and special guest, Ian Anderson.
