"Whilst some would criticise the Double Trio for its unwieldiness, implying that too many cooks spoil the broth, Paul Richards of the California Guitar Trio who support the King Crimson during several tours disagrees. “I personally never felt like it was too many players, as I saw many, many shows that the combination of these six players work exceedingly well. The main thing I remember about the audience was how glad they were to see King Crimson after a 10 year
break. After meeting Crimson fans from all over the world, I’d have to say that they are indeed some of the most avid music enthusiasts that I’ve ever seen. Of course there were a small group of complainers asking: why are they doing it this way? Why don’t they have Greg Lake or John Wetton? Why is Robert
sitting in the dark? Why two drummers? I just always felt like saying ‘Fuck that shit and just listen to the music.’"...
As someone who saw the Double Trio probably more than anyone else on the planet what does he know now that he didn't know then? “That this may have been the only chance we had to see/hear Adrian, Robert, Trey, Tony, Pat and Bill all playing together live. One of the many special moments in King Crimson history.”
