Belew, Gaga, Eno

I first saw Belew with Gaga opening for the LoG here in NYC. Most of the audience loved him, though there were a couple of folks pissed off by the taped drummer (ie, Belew himself).
When I found out that the LoG wasnít going to come on until 1:00AM or 1:30AM, I had to go home back to Brooklyn. On my way out, however, I saw Eno standing in the hallway with a Japanese lady and a black gentleman and Eno was saying that he was going to be on his next album (this may have been Busta Cherry Jones).
Apparently, however, minutes after this conversation Eno asked Belew to lay down some guitar on the Remain in Light sessions (an album I still think reached further than anything weíve seen in the rock genre since).
Peter Sinfield . . .

Wonderful news about Peter Sinfieldís recovery from his recent surgery. I suspect that even Father Christmas himself will share in these glad tidings. Cheers!

Hello this is eggplant. The first time I met A.B. I bought him a budweiser beer. His band GAGA had just opened for TLOG at the Cleveland Agora and Fripp and crew were on-stage doing the dance routine. "This is dance music! If people want to dance, let them dance!" I was chatting it up with him about his playing style (being very similar to R.F.) and asked him if he ever thought of playing with him. Adrian looks at me and then lets out his usual wide open ha,ha,ha,ha...( Iím in this band and weíre doing a song about crime in the streets) type laugh. He didnít really answer the question, but I think everyone knows what happened next.
He was very happy is all I can tell you. W.S.K.
next up is the story of the flying bud. can that hits Robert making him stop playing, to go on to tell the "itís dance music" routine.

Congratulation to Adrian for his birthday and for many unforgettable Musical moments.
I loved his un-expected accoustic Performance of 3 of a perfect pair, during the "Construkction of light" tour
I also love so much his voice at the small Songs "Inner Garden 1 and 2" from the THRAK record. And so many more great moments .....
When I visited a concert of the Belew Power Trio at Aschaffenburg and was about entering the venue, i felt a gentle hand on my right shoulder, which was Adrian, who stood right behind me, and needed to go to the stage. He was so friendly.
I wish him sucess with his new music: FLUX.
Hope he is getting a big Birthday Cake with a Rhino on top of it.

We all know that Fripp ruined Hallís album by putting all ínem Frippertronics on it! That sketch on The Best Show on WFMU - Tomís arch nemesis also being enemies with Fripp - was like worlds colliding for me. To top it off, Larksí Tongues Pt. 1 was featured on the subsequent "Frankie Teardrop" sound collage. I encourage anyone with a sense of humor to check out the Dec 17 archive for The Best Show on Wfmu on the wfmu website. Fripp chat starts around 1:37 (stick through the Gene Simmons jokes that get in the way of the Fripp feud thread)
Also, someone on the US College Board must be a fan of Frippís, as his Hendrix story was the subject of a grammar question on the most recent PSAT college prep exam. Millions of high school students had to correct a phrase dealing with Robert and Jimi shaking each otherís left hands.
Iím a little surprised at how Fripp and King Crimson has remained in the cultural consciousness to any degree, considering the nearly complete lack of radio and mainstream media coverage over the decades.

>why have Crimson never employed a proper multi-keyboard virtuoso, as is de rigueur with most prog acts?
KC do things a little differently from most prog acts. :)
My thoughts: in the early days, the Mellotron gave the music an immediate, distinctive symphonic feel which a more conventional Hammond organ / electric piano / synth instrumentation wouldnít have achieved. Also, having a multi-instrumentalist like Ian McDonald in the ranks meant there were no gaps in the sound.
In the Discipline quartet, the combination of Adrianís sonic fireworks and the intricate rhythmic interplay of the two guitars made keyboards redundant. That looks set to continue with the new 7-piece line-up, although Iím sure a keyboard will rear its head occasionally.
