What a drums!! February 20, 2012
Written by TheWinkler
My grandfather should be 105 by now but he died at 97. He was an excellent musician that could have been professional, but his family forced him to be an architect.
He founded the first Jazz orchestra in Barcelona in 1927, called Tribu Universitaria and played sax (imported from the US as there were no saxes in Europe then) and violin, among other instruments.
When he come home, I always played him some of my favourite prog music, he quite liked some of it, other bored him to death. Dispite his violin expertise, he never enjoyed David Cross playing i.e.
But I still remember the first time I played In the Court of the Crimson King to him. After only 20 seconds of playing his face litghtened and he exclamed in his Spanish jazzy language: Qué "drums"!!!! (What a drum player!!!!).
Thank you Alex, for bringing this back to my mind. Dispite what Mr. Fripp says, I think that Michaels playing in 21st, ITCOCK and Epitaph, can’t get any better.

I wish I could’ve been there (but I only arrived on Earth a full month and three days later, so, no good for that...).
Although I had the studio albums and "The Night Watch", and had heard most of "The Great Read more

As last year, it’s great to have this as a FLAC collection. But not tagged? That’s disappointing. It seems that DGM downloads are pretty hit-and-miss when it comes to tagging, and it’s a pain to deal with on a collection Read more

Glad that there’s a 2nd installment of Mr. Monday’s oddities. I assumed there would be a #2, so I did not bother listening to a lot of them when 1st out, but now they are all here for Read more

I do not care what anyone else says - this is my favorite KC line up of all time. The VCS3 makes it all that better and all that more Read more

Nice little tapping and rapping of the skins. I always liked the idea of two drummers in a band. One lays down the groundwork while the other can Read more

A very tasty batterie outing, and somewhat sad in that this formation passed away too soon.

Back around 1976 or ’77, as a 15-/16-year-old, I started listening to Crimson. Unfortunately Crimson had broken up a couple years earlier, and the various surviving “progressive rock” bands were stepping all over their dicks in their rush to Read more

Much life has been breathed into this ol’ boot; and a must-have it is, too. A few clams here and there (it was only the sixth (?) gig of this team after Read more
