a forum has many different opinions on it, just because I may not agree with you (and express it in my own way) doesnít mean I equate you with criminal and stupid behaviours. Itís also certainly not "punishment to the community" to post an "šngry" post every once in a while.

An expression of frustration and disappointment for not being able to experience ones favourite band in the way Iíd hoped to, is merely that, my expression. I was frustrated and quite pissed off when I realized that there would be no footage available of the recent tour, the build up here on DGM live seemed to suggest it, OK, so I had my say about it, I was "forthright" to put it mildly, but so what? If Sid didnít like it, he didnít have to post it, or any of the other "angry" voices who also posted similar opinions.

But kudos to DGM for allowing free expression... That is what a forum is for...the whole gamut of human expression is what makes it so interesting.

Be a bit boring if we all just said and felt the same donít you think?

Happy birthday, Greg Lake

So a highlight of Greg Lakeís time with Crimson, as evidenced by the fact that someone has shouted out a request for it all five times Iíve seen the band since 2000, is of course, "Cat Food." Vocally, itís about as aggressive as "...Schizoid Man" or "Pictures of a City." Much as I love "Elephant Talk" and "Dinosaur," itís also probably the bandís most memorable single (at least of the bandís  animal themed ones).

Thanks for the update PPminty... I donít get out much. Just Hammersmith then... So rock and roll. Feels heavy. Images of Motorhead, buzzcocks, etc. from an American who of course has never been there. Just those LPs and CDs

I want I want I want King Crimson to


come play in my country, no,

come play in my city, no,

come play in my home, and


play a certain song, no,

play a certain song not at all suited to the current lineup, no,

play a set list I provide.


And although they never ever do this, I have several suggestions as to former-member guest-performers, including some that are no longer with us.


In my estimation, King Crimson should charge me very little for the privilege of meeting these King Crimson needs of mine, because I am a big fan. I will yell "Whereís Bruford?" at a quiet moment to prove this point. Remember, turning a profit for a tour or a release is CORPORATE, and thatís bad!


If any/all of this request cannot be met, I will actually become angry at the band and will punish the community with forum posts that poorly written and more poorly thought out, compelling the well-meaning to respond.


Next week, I will post on how I should be able to photograph, tape, video record, plaster-cast, acquire multiple autographs that I can put on eBay, steal wallets and take DNA samples.

Mr Bakalluma,

I agree that "Live at Hammersmith Odeon" does have a certain historical ring to it...

But, sadly, the famous Hammersmith venue (which many of us still fondly remember as simply the "HAMMY-O") is not called the Odeon anymore, and hasnít been that since the early 1990s.

Itís now known as the HAMMERSMITH [insert name of latest big corporate sponsor here] APOLLO

UK Tour venues.

Thereís really only two venues in Glasgow that would be considered suitable.
The Royal Concert Hall or, my preference, The Armadillo (or The Clyde Auditorium to give its proper name).
Perfect sight lines and impressive acoustics.

Mel C to Mel C

Mel Collins -> Phil Thornally -> Melanie C

Mel Collins played on Phil Thornallyís "Swamp" album.

Phil Thornally co-wrote songs on Melanie Cís "Northern Star" and "Reason" albums.

Is that one ídegree of separationí or two?

Did they do the slower acoustic version? I have yet to see either, but thatís the way they play it on Live in Warsaw.

lying for money
:: Posted by Tom239 on November 10, 2014

Mr. Frippís words (in translation) "Do you think John Lennon lied for money? Dylan? Hendrix?" are questions, not assertions. I read them as an invitation to consider the broader issue of what artistic honesty means, and to recognize its value.

Note that Mr. Fripp asked whether those musicians lied for money in particular. Commerce is not inherently bad but there are things it doesnít mix so well with. Itís not inherently wrong to play music for money or have sex for money; itís just tragic when the quality of the experience falls way short of what we know is possible.

Music is not prose and is not true or false in the same way that a matter-of-fact statement is. Yet we know what is meant when someone says of a musician, "he could not play a note that was not true."

I think ZoltŠn KodŠly summed up the relation of truth to art well when he said, "The roots of science and art are the same. Each, in its own way, reflects the world. The basic conditions: sharp powers of observation, precise expression of the life observed, and raising it to a higher synthesis. And the foundation of scientific life and artistic greatness is also the same: just man, _vir justus_."

Cage trickery pickery
:: Posted by DanAnderson on November 09, 2014

Hey JBeerLTIA,
If I remember correctly, doesnít the triple CD "Heavy ConstrucKtion" have a 40 minute bit of live concert video on it, a concert from Rome? That video has the tune Cage on it. Also the "Eyes Wide Open" Live from Shepherdís Bush segment has Cage on it as well. Enjoy!
