Carl Palmer celebrates his birthday today, born March 20, 1950 in Birmingham, England.

According to allmusic.com, Palmer is one of the most respected rock drummers to emerge from the 1960s.

Of course, he's best known for his work with Emerson, Lake and Palmer, but he's been around: he's worked with The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Atomic Rooster, and Asia.

In fact, he re-united with the original lineup of Asia in 2006 and the band released their most recent album, "XXX" last year.

"Face on the Bridge" was their first released single from the album.
