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: Quť "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, canít get any better.

I was at this show, and the fans were loud. One guy shouted "Asbury Park" too much. One guy got Frippís attention by shouting "King Crimson making history!" The best was when someone said, "Hey Billy, you forgot your Read more

Some of the ideas one can hear there seem to be further developed in collaboration with Trey Gunn. We can hear them on earlier-published-there Proto Punk track (rf19921211-0101). It is good that such tunes are not Read more
