A Life-Changing Experience
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Sep 25, 2013
Jakko Jakszyk has posted the following status update on Facebook:

On the evening of July 15 1971 I sat in row 3 at Watford town hall and watched King Crimson.
It blew my head off.
Robert Fripp and Mel Collins in particular.
It somehow felt that my life had changed as a result.

That seemingly romantic teenage notion came straight back to me 3 weeks ago on the evening of September 4th.
The phone rang. 
It was Robert Fripp.

Did I have time for chat?
 Of course.

He was reforming King Crimson.
7 members.
3 drummers
.
He told me who they would all be. 
Except one.

Would I like to be the 'the primary vocalist and second guitarist?

Jeez
.
Like I said.
 Somehow my life had indeed changed."




King Crimson Mania!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Sep 25, 2013
Well, not quite but news of King Crimson’s return to the frontline has caused quite a considerable amount of excitement on the interwebs in the last 24 hours.

As well as the usual suspects in the world of social media, numerous music sites covered the announcement including Prog and Uncut.

In the Uncut piece Fripp is quoted as saying "“The first performance will take place in either North or South America. There will be rehearsals primarily in England, and the final batch of rehearsals will most likely be in America in August or September 2014. There is a plan to include the UK in the tour dates, but it depends on a number of circumstances. Right now the primary geographical focus is the United States."

The weight of so many fingers clicking onto DGMLive caused the site to temporarily go into meltdown last. Fortunately, Eric Anderson, DGMLive’s tech guru was able to resurrect the site despite being on the hoof.  Stay tuned for more details.

The first performance will take place in either North or South America," Fripp told Uncut. "There will be rehearsals primarily in England, and the final batch of rehearsals will most likely be in America in August or September 2014. There is a plan to include the UK in the tour dates, but it depends on a number of circumstances. Right now the primary geographical focus is the United States."

New King Crimson Line-Up Confirmed
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Sep 24, 2013
The 8th incarnation of King Crimson will be Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin, Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Mel Collins, Jakko Jakszyk and Robert Fripp.

Writing on his (not yet published) dairy for September 24th Fripp notes "The Point Of Crim-Seeing was of a conventional Back Line – Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin, Tony Levin and Pat Matstelotto - reconfigured as the Front Line, with Mel Collins, Jakko Jakszyk and myself as Back Line."

Robert goes on "All the Crims have expressed great excitement at the return to Go! mode. Given the considerable commitments of all members, it will take a year before Crimson is able to perform."
 
Bill Rieflin mentioned to me that he told Jacknife Lee (REM and Robbie Williams’ producer) of the triple drumming, and Jacknife’s reply: Of course. We know what two drummers sound like! I’m hoping we’ll find out, and have a pile of fun doing so."

In his (not yet published) diary for September 7th Fripp begins "dear brother crims, we have one year to prepare for action of the savage variety, and be in Go! mode for september 2014… but essentially, King Crimson is in motion."

Robert expects that they’ll be rehearsing, in full and small group formations over that period.


King Crimson Is GO!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Sep 24, 2013
Robert Fripp’s latest diary update contains the news that King Crimson is back on active duty. Fripp writes:

"This is a very different reformation to what has gone before: seven players, four English and three American, with three drummers.

The Seven-Headed Beast of Crim is in Go! mode."

You can read the whole diary entry here. So far the only publicly confirmed member is Bill Rieflin (ex-Ministry, REM) who Fripp has previously played with on The Repercussions of Angelic Behaviour (alongside Trey Gunn). However, it’s possible to surmise from Fripp’s Sept 5th diary entry, that Tony Levin is also in Crim Go! mode as well.

More details to come...

A Glazed Expression
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Sep 21, 2013
This just in from Greg James. "I walked into this stained glass shop today to meet my sister-in-law and couldn't help but notice a familiar face looking at me...



Apparently the owner is a fan and cooked up this piece. I told him if he made one of the Discipline cover, he'd have a sale as that was my point of entry. He called me" just a youngster" and let me take a photo of his Schizoid stained glass. I told him I was going to email it to RF but he suggested that I send it to Greg Lake instead "cuz it was his album". I, of course, said that it was a group effort, but he was happy for me to send you the pic.

A fun encounter that I thought I'd share."
