I've been disappointed to see a bit of a pissing match between Adrian Belew and King Crimson over performing "my songs"....  I don't have a lot of info but what I've read so far makes it look like Adrian is being a turd over the way the 8-man Crimson line-up was formed and is being paid which is why he was not invited to join this group.  In addition, he made some demands of King Crimson not to perform songs he claims to have written from the 80s which seems unreasonable, especially considering that HE plays tons of these tunes with his Power Trio.  I always thought of Fripp as being pretty pompous and self-righteous but his position on this issue seems quite reasonable and grounded in fairness.

 

Oh well... I'll try to follow as this develops and will post if I see more spit hitting the spam...

 

Rock ON!

I think Belew was the reason for KC's success in the 80s.  A lot of those songs were his to begin with.  I'm not sure where they would be today without the Discipline/Beat/Three of a Perfect Pair era.

Although not officially King Crimson, 1/4 of the line-up (Tony Levin and Pat Maselotto) plus Markus Reuter on "touch" guitar as the Stick Men played the wonderful little club just north of Detroit to close out their summer tour. There were maybe 100 people in the place and I was right up front...wow!  Great show and music!  The band hung around and I met both Tony & Pat, claimed one of the drum sticks that Pat used and got a photo with Tony.  It was a really great evening of true prog rock.  They tore up 3 different King Crimson tunes; Larks' Tongues part II, Satori in Tangiers and Level 5.  A really awesome night that I'll get to relive somewhat with my upcoming Crimson shows in November.... Rock ON!
