2008 King Crimson News

http://www.dgmlive.com/news.htm?entry=1210

I know this isn't metal news, but there are quite a bit of people on this board interested in King Crimson, so its worth sharing.

Ending weeks of speculation in various online communities, Robert Fripp has revealed in his latest online diary that drummer Gavin Harrison (of Porcupine Tree) will be joining King Crimson.

The band will be playing a series of live dates in Chicago’s Park West – most recently the venue to RF and the LoCG appearance in the windy city. Fripp notes “Park West is a fave venue, and one I have been working for 27 years. The LCG were here in 1989 & 1990…This is also the venue where, according to our current plans for King Crimson’s return to active-service in 2008, preparatory to the 40th. Anniversary Celebration of 2009, The Beast Of Crim will be playing a 4-night residency in August 2008 with KC’s third double-drumming formation.

The first formation: Jamie Muir & Bill Bruford (1972-73);
the second formation: Pat Mastelotto & Bill Bruford (1994-97);
the third formation: Pat Mastelotto & Gavin Harrison.

A fourth double-drumming formation, of 1981-84 (Adrian & Billy B), doesn’t quite count as Adrian’s primary focus was in the front line.”

Harrison is one of the most respected drummers of his generation, adding a prodigious technique to the work of Porcupine Tree as well collaborating with Jakko Jakszyk on The Bruised Romantic Glee Club, and most recently, Drop – an album with bassist and singer, 05Ric and also featuring contributions from Fripp. Some may recall Drop was featured as a DGMLive giveaway (see my review on the blog), perhaps hinting at Harrison's proposed involvement. Only DGMLive regular, Chocolatefireguard, spotted the listing on King Crimson's myspace site: the top four musicians have been there for a couple of months now.

More details will be announced regarding rehearsal schedules and ticket availability as soon as we get them.
Cool news. I want Crimson NOW.

Does this mean that Gavin Harrison is leaving PT? If so, this news sucks.

Yeah, hopefully he can handle double duty. The dude's a genius behind the kit.

Meh, maybe on the basis of their output. But Robert Fripp > Steven Wilson regardless.

KC are living proof that good musicians do not always create good music. (Steve Vai is another good example.) I have yet to hear a song by KC that I liked. At all.

So you haven't heard anything off of the perfect In the Court of the Crimson King or Red records?
