Seventies progressive Rocker, Greg Lake famously wrote he believed in Father Christmas. This was at a time the old misery guts was going through his infamous trial- which centred around complaints against the bearded one, sneaking into kiddies bedrooms.
The whole world turned their back on Santa Claus, as he faced the allegations of kiddie fiddling, however Lake was resolute in his support.
Lake penned the catchy festive tune, which swayed the jury of easily led imbeciles. One juror at the time, Lieutenant Kije said " I had seen the tune on 'Top Of The Pops', which meant Father Christmas was innocent, otherwise why would they play it. I also recognise the riff in his song as my own tuned penned years ago in Russia. Anyone using my work has got to be honest. I am a very vain and lovely man!"
Once acquitted Santa Claus, gave Greg partial shares in his empire. In recent years Santa has become very old and now refuses to take any mail, just like Ringo Starr does. Greg has stepped in and brought the rest of the company, so children will receive gifts as usual.
Greg added "I dont blame Santa for telling the kids to 'eff off' really, Christmas is so commericial, the kids were asking for ludicrous things. This year children will getting more traditional gifts, such as nuts, satsumas, wooden hoops and chlorea. Merry Christmas to one and all!"
Greg Lake used to be a member of 'Emerson, Lake and Parmeasan Cheese'
