...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

ADRIAN BELEW SAYS HE WASN’T ASKED TO BE PART OF REUNITED KING CRIMSON


E.G. Records
Just days after Robert Fripp announced that he was putting together a new version of King Crimson, guitarist Adrian Belew revealed that he won’t be part of it.
Belew — whose long career includes gigs with David BowieTalking Heads and Nine Inch Nails — said on his Facebook page that he is no longer a member of King Crimson. He set up the post in the form of a Q&A:
questions and answers.
q: are you in the new King Crimson planned for next september 2014?
a: no. after 32 years I am no longer in King Crimson.
q: were you asked to be in the new King Crimson?
a: no, I was not. robert informed me in an email that he was starting a 7-piece version of the band. he said I would not be right for what the band is doing.
Additionally, the question “So, how do you feel?” was answered with an upbeat ”Happy with what I have to be happy with … which is quite a lot.” Specifically, Belew said that he’s moving forward with the type of projects that have kept him busy over the past couple of decades, including a tour of South America with his Power Trio and a European tour next spring with the Crimson Project, which performs King Crimson music. “Life is great,” he wrote.
