13 years of patience condensed in 3 hours of live music...
Well here we are.... I know I'm only 29 but I discovered "In The Court of the Crimson King" thirteen years ago... 21st Century Schizoid Man made me totally crazy but I didn't know what was going to happen with the following songs.... And albums...
I'll be honest, I love pretty much all King Crimson eras but...... I've always been touched directly by the few ones between '69 and '74... I thought I would never see King Crimson live in my life(Worse, I didn't even expect to be able to experience this very repertoire from the band with the right instrumentation AND with new arrangements).
I couldn't make it to the last tour because I wasn't in France...
So I'd like to thank Sir Robert Fripp for giving us that very gift, you and band gave us that night. The Crimson King, yourself and your guitar craft aphorism had so much influence on me, on my musical concepts and on my way to compose my own music. For all that THANK YOU!
I wish I could shake your hand and directly tell you how much we need your music and philosophy.
Anyway, thank you and thank to the whole band for this amazing show, performance, for these new arrangements, these three drums and drummers, for letting me experience Starless(Man... That blue lights progressively turning to that "Hard" red light during the tensed part... It was just perfect!!) and most of my favourite songs.
I'll keep that very concert in mind until my last breath.
Hope to see you again on the road(Maybe next year...?)
(ps: Can't wait to get (at least) a track from that night...)
