1. The Wetton era of Crimson was so amazing

He was an unbelievably talented songwriter. Folks should check out his solo output. Then of course there's Fripp and Bruford. KC was in a league of their own.

2. One of the best bands that too many people have not had the pleasure to listen to.

All the band members throughout the years are high class musicians, and they don't sound like anyone else.

Robert Fripp, the founder and lead guitar has a collection of solo albums that are incredible, original, he create the "Frippetonics" which is a beautiful almost infinite sustain with a very soothing sound.

Anyone who has not listened to King Crimson, do so, you will not be disappointed. Start with their old stuff because one of their greatness is that this band has evolved through the years.

Here is another title from red, a beautiful track that becomes very progressive at the end.

3. Saw Them In Chicago

I'm pretty sure it was the "Beat" tour. Might have been 3 of a Perfect Pair.
They opened with "Wheels/Neal, Jack & Me".
After a 10 minute midshow bre,ak they reopened with Elephant Talk.
Pretty sure the encore was Lark's Tongue.
Awesomely tight the entire show!

4. I saw them in Boston during Elephant Talk, and two years ago in New York

The first time I tried to see them was in Boston during "Lark's Tongues in Aspic", we bought the tickets something like 2 or 3 months in advance. The day of the concert I completely forgot about it and went to the movies instead, the movie was so bad that I fell sleep. When I got to my apartment a friend, who I had bought the tickets with calls me on the phone and says "are you crazy?", and I go "what?", "yes, are you crazy?", so I ask what happened? King Crimson...damn, I missed it, I kept the tickets for a long time.

They are one of my very favourite bands, Genesis (the old Genesis with Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett) being my favourite, although "The Beatles rank up there as well...I should say they all line up on first place as my favourites...same with Jethro Tull, Yes, Pink Floyd, etc., etc.

I just love music, I like classical music a lot as well, and Jazz, etc.

5. Saw Tull

We had a high-school with an enormous fieldhouse in the city where I grew up.
Big enough that Ian & the guys played in our town!
Terrific show, too.
