Re; Keith Emerson

A lovely tribute by Sid over at Classic Rock. A sad passing indeed of one of rock music’s & not only rock music of course, greatest composers & keyboard maestros. What a sensational player & charismatic individual Emerson was. The most incredible player of his instrument, that I have ever noticed in my years on planet earth. God Bless! RIP.
R.I.P. Keith Emerson

We are all trying to absorb the awful news. He should always be recognized as a great composer in equal billing with his abilities as a performer.
I was thrilled to hear ELP play 21st Century Schizoid Man in Boston several years back. He and Greg also opened a show with Talk with the Wind which was rendered beautifully. Along with Larks Tongues in Aspic (I-IV) and Close to the Edge, Tarkus defined a genre. He will be missed.
God Bless Keith Emerson. Condolences to his family.

Just wanted to add a sad farewell to the great Keith Emerson. Many are heartbroken this evening.
Rieflin & Guitar Craft?
:: Posted by DevlinC on March 11, 2016
I wasn’t aware Rieflin was involved in Guitar Craft in the 80s. There’s no mention of it in his Wikipedia or his discography. He seems to appear quite by random in the Crimson patheon in 1999 with the two albums on First World Music. What was his involvement in GC?
Bill has a long association with GC both as a player and as a tutor.

Congratulations to Vreeken Mark & Singleton David and band for a job well done.
Solicitation for a smooth sabbatical for Rieflin Bill.
In the Google dialect of Haitian, ’y plisman’ means ’and folding’. Could it be that the Vicar is actually Nigel Tufnel?
See you in September.

... and hearty handshake to you good folks at DGM who are responsible for the latest download, and pretty much everything else you’ve made available. I’m enjoying this Toronto show; while there is a tad bit of distortion in the highs, overall it sounds gigantic on my home theater setup.
I seem to recall Mr. Fripp stating, back in the day, that any given lineup of King Crimson seems to struggle a bit with material from previous lineups. (Am I remembering that correctly?) However it sounds like the current lineup has overcome that bugaboo. The arrangements of the older songs are fantastic, and the new material fits in nicely; familiar yet fresh.
Oh, and I’ll repeat my yearly request for a download of the Plumpton show from 1969. I have the rest of the Epitaph set and would very much like to hear this one.

You’re surprised at the inner circle of DGM being offended at your slagging of an RF associate who’s worked with him longer (in chronological terms) than Pat, Jakko & Gavin, for instance? Good work DannyX!

"Orpheum and T.O...? The boner I got during Sailors Tail were equal... "
Me too! Maybe we should get together and compare "notes"

And thank you, Sid, for the clarification that my suspicions were well founded.

"I suppose countless Guitar Craft-related activities since the late ’80s and albums such as Ten Seconds (released on the old DGM record label in 1996), Birth Of A Giant and The Repercussions Of Angelic Behaviour albums both released in 1999, and of course the Slow Music album in 2005 and the numerous Slow Music gigs directed by Bill in 2006 and a live downloads along the way, don’t count as much as a connection? "
As I stated in my initial post, "other than his previous work with RF". Perhaps I should have said, "as direct a connection to Crimson-proper as the rest of the band", although I suspect that would have been misinterpreted as well, as some people seemed determined to take offense at what was an innocuous observation.
Thanks for the clarification, Danny. I just wanted to be sure that "countless Guitar Craft-related activities since the late ’80s and
albums such as Ten Seconds (released on the old DGM record label in
1996), Birth Of A Giant and The Repercussions Of Angelic Behaviour
albums both released in 1999, and of course the Slow Music album in 2005
and the numerous Slow Music gigs directed by Bill in 2006..." have no bearing in the matter as far as your concerned.
