  3. From king crimson's website, DGMlive.com The Return of King Crimson Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Nov 19, 2007 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 , 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. *ooops, I forgot the link..here, http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_po...3629&FID=19 I can't believe I just caught wind of this...

I loved Stevie's last 'About Time' cd....best I've heard from him since his 70s Traffic days. Will certainly check out his new one...I hope it's not a let down as GTLO hears....

    The Who Thread

    I'm not exactly sure if it was the 'Bump' band...but I saw Ian play at Waterloo Records in Austin and he had Mark Andes on Bass....He was the bassist for Spirit, back in the day. Looked about 30 ! Must've been the good acid ! Hotplant had posted she was a friend of his I believe.....

    did your mom ever find your stash?

    Ya know what's funny ? I lived in Hawaii during the early 70s...and the pot growing on Maui was just starting to take hold. We called it Mowie Zowie....not Mowie Wowie like the mainlanders called it. And the term, KIND BUD...was KINE BUD in Hawaii...from the phrase, Da Kine, which meant The Best, among other meanings.... So terms became common place over mispronunciations. Shaka brah !

    I purposely didn't put an emoticom after my statement about that..... I wanted to see what you'd say. Robert and Alison I'm sure are pleased now.
  19. I'm thinking you were responding to my post Jahfin....but icantquityoubabe had one between mine and yours and I read his post and what he quoted over twice..and couldn't find something in there you'd be posting about.

  21. Since he wasn't going to go I think he should have given a beaucoups of cash to the Ahmet Fund...and then just given away the ticket to someone who couldn't afford it, but really, really wanted to go. That way...there'd been no possibility of someone just buying it for 'other' reasons than just for the music....cause you gotta admit, there'd have to be some there just to be seen.... It was nice gesture of him though....

    did your mom ever find your stash?

    I never bought nickle bags !! Standard in my earliest days were $10 and sometime were 3-finger !!! BONUS !!!! That's when pounds were $80-$100. And I'm not talking brown Mexican..but sweet Guadalajaran Gold and Michocan....and Oaxacan.

    I don't think Robert and Alison will like to hear that. I have no problem falling asleep initially. But I wake up too early then can't fall back to sleep. So I lay there and half-way doze..then just go ahead and get up when it gets light. I often wonder if I'm getting much R.E.M. sleep. I think I need to buy more of their cd's. Great band though, really.
