A 52 Week Autobiography Through Music – Week 30 – King Crimson
King Crimson is another band who's music is not so easy to pin down. The band has gone through several incarnations with Robert Fripp being the only member to be present in every form leading most to see him as the "leader' and musical director. However there have been some strong members in the band who did their own part to shape the sound of Crimson's music, notably the Lyricists and vocalists, Greg Lake, John Wetton, Adrien Belew and Most recently Jakko Jakszyk.
Here is a quote from Robert Fripp that I think is great and sums up nicely the way this band ebbs and flows.
"King Crimson is, as always, more a way of doing things. When there is nothing to be done, nothing is done: Crimson disappears. When there is music to be played, Crimson reappears. If all of life were this simple". Robert Fripp.
