This hit my Facebook yesterday, caught a lot of traction, and by yesterday evening I sent an invite out to a bunch of friends.

I'm guessing most of the King Crimson fans here already know that Fripp retired the band back in 2022. What's going on here is Tony Levin (bass) and Adrian Belew (vocals and rhythm guitar) are being joined by Steve Vai on lead guitar and Danny Carey on drums. I'm also getting the sense that this is going to be an 'adaptation' of the songs.... which leads me to believe that Danny Carey and Steve Vai will be 'showing up' in ways that just playing the originals wouldn't have allowed as much.

Just throwing this one up here because it looks extra special.


“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. I use the word "love" here not merely in the personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace - not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth.” - James Baldwin
