There can be only one

How long has it been since that expensive purchase went onto my credit card statement stating that I would indeed get to see the Crims live?
I had nearly forgotten about the upcoming calamity that is the 7-headed Crimson until Frippís diary politely reminded me of what is coming in less than a month. Any expression of anticipation would be a gross understatement.
For all those that attend I hope you have a great time and have a truly unique concert experience.
For Fripp, I saw that your goal is to have fun on this tour. I hope that as you near your 70th year you can finally achieve that goal. Never too late for change.
I do hope once he gets to Wisconsin his diary entry reads "Morning: Hotel Cheddarble. "

Interesting to see Greg Lake making an appearance in NightWorld. Just a week ago my copy of his Songs of a Lifetime CD arrived and I was able to relive the happy memory of seeing Lake perform in Tarrytown, New York. I made the pilgrimage from NYC, climbing the steep riverbank from the Metro North station, and it was worth the trip. He put on a great solo show which included excerpts from most of In the Court... "I Talk to the Wind" got the full treatment and substantial parts of "Epitaph" and "Court" were performed as a medley, in addition to an opening teaser of "Schizoid Man." Even today, Greg Lake is not coasting. He gives his audience everything heís got (even with backing tracks). And his voice, though altered by age, is still truly stirring. I warmly recommend the CD and, if you get the chance to see it, the show.

RE: "Stormy - what has happened to the bi-weekly Crim tickle? Itís been a month since the last one. Iím Jonesing, I tell ya, Jonesing!"
"Mr. Stormy has been flat-out busy on up and coming audio delights. In the meantime thereís a couple of hundred gigs that are awaiting your ears and available for purchase. Have a browse about the library - thereís definitely something there to sate your desires!"
Just got the okay to get the Starless set in a few days. Give us a hoo-hah, sargeant!

In the Fripperblog I notice in the photos that Fripp has resorted to an interesting strategy in travelling with drummers: Both Gavin Harrison and Bill Rieflin are clearly riding in the back of the truck with the gear. I notice Pat Mastellato isnít there, so Iím thinking this wasnít the first time and that Pat was "indisposed" when the drum truck was loading.
Dammit! (Mad at the universe)

"would Fripp like to reprise Heroes, and possibly a couple of Blondie songs, in Londonís Hyde Park for BBC2 on September 14th? Heavily yes!"
So King Crimson hasní played for like 7 years, and he hasnít played with Blondie for like a million. And it just so happens that thereís a conflict? Oh universe I shake my fist at you.
Actually, Iíve always found that Frippís non-Crimson guitaring to be more interesting: Itís almost like he doesnít feel it appropriate for him to really lay out like a "lead guitarist" when in Crimson. So I for one am annoyed not to have the opportunity to at least see video of Fripp playing Fade Away and Radiate with Blondie in Hyde Park (though in 2010 I could have simply taken the 82 or 278 busses from my flat down to Hyde Park).
As for the "missing" diary entries, Iím glad there arenít any spoilers there to muck up the fun a few weeks from now.

I really want to read the updated diary, but Iím afraid there may be set list spoilers... Can anyone confirm or disconfirm?

To paraphrase Stanley Unwin
"Then arrivit a celestibold host of Angelodes, all warbly in the throakus and twangit on the harp there. ďHosanna and deep deep joy!Ē they sang.
ďDeep joy indeel!Ē exclaimit Crimheads. ďItís all kicking off here!Ē"
