    From Sound To Silence

    https://www.dgmlive.com/news/kc-from-sound-to-silence

    If this is truly the end of one of my favorite bands ever, then this is a sad day. Thanks for the memories and I hope somehow some way the fireworks continue. Maybe Adrian can step in?

    Saw them a few years ago in Edinburgh. It was fine, but it's been apparent for some years now that there are no real creative juices left in the Fripp.

    Time for [email protected] et al to move on.

      But instead we have Fripp & Toyah?

        Ha! Actually read something earlier that said the 2022 plan is for Robert to go out with David Singleton and do some Soundscapes shows with Q&A. I enjoy Soundscapes but that's probably not going to be enough to get us motivated to get out and see it unless it's really close to home.

          I'd been hoping to see the Mighty Krim one more time....
          As someone said of Jerry Garcia's passing: don't be sad that it's over, be glad that it happened.

          I watched Meltdown again recently, magnificent! The concerts I attended in 2018 and at the Royal Albert Hall in 2019 must stand as highlights for me, of all the concerts, whatever the music, that I've attended since 1973. An awesome ensemble!

          As a consequence of those concerts, I have to conclude that Robert Fripp and Krim have succeeded artistically, and sustained that level of accomplishment, in the field of progressive music to an extent unmatched by any other ensemble of similar vintage...save Frank Zappa perhaps.

          Fortunately I have just about everything they've released, all the big deluxe boxsets as well as the CD/DVD sets so I'm not going to be running out of Krim anytime soon. It's to Fripp's considerable credit that he's demonstrated that it is possible for creative musicians to be in/regain control of their own artistic destiny and output if the will is there to claim it. Again, I'm reminded of Frank Zappa in this regard.

          And now to listen to some Krim. Live in Vienna I think...
          Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
          Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

            King Crimson over? The end of truly great legacy in music then. Their music may have been a little too experimental for my tastes, but they were damn good at what they did over the years. Not to mention what an inspiring debut they had in 1969, forcing prog acts to up their game massively.

              King Crimson was/is more of an institution than a band. I can’t believe it is over as long as Robert Fripp’s heart is beating.

                It's been over for years. All the "recent" activity was just Fripp bulking out his pension fund...

                  Those of us who got to see the recent concerts were very happy to help Fripp bulk his pension fund. It's not like we didn't get something priceless in return.

                    Very true!

                        Agree. That Krim since 2013 or so was at best a King-Crimson-light. Fripp turned the Beast into a house-cat to get more recognition and applause from the mainstream-culture. I always will will love King Crimson, but to me that project ran out in 2008.

                          Absolutely!

                          And whats wrong with a man working and making a living. Nothing. We need MORE of those these days.

                            Nothing. Just don't pretend it is some great artistic imperative. Surprisingly, in the last fifteen years or so, Yes have had more artistic drive than the once mighty Krim. Go figure...
