holy shit that letter from that diary entry is amazing


That letter was stunning in its hubris - as though a fan can dictate what a band does. Thankfully, the band continues to do things however they want.

Will the tour happen? We simply don’t know at this point, still too soon. I am sure they will wait to cancel until the last second, hoping to pull the shows off. If they don’t happen, imagine band will have to do some things to recoup losses.....but we shall see.

Remainder of 2015 nightly downloads are up - Canada and Japan shows, ends up being just about 20 new live recordings. Another easy money to tickle the curiosity of those interested in improv by the current band.

Oddly - with the remaining 2015 live recordings going up (minus Paris dates), all the European ones have free options, but for the japan shows, you have to purchase the full bundle. Guessing because these tracks were the source tracks for radical action release?

Oh my... Bill Rieflin has passed away...

The Double Quartet is no more. I can't help but realize his wife's passing last year is no doubt what did him in. So very sad. KC 2013-2015 <3


Edit: woah... maybe why they just uploaded 2015 tracks?? Also, reading it was cancer that allegedly did him in. Awful.

Yeaaahhh it’s official per rollingstone and Fripps Facebook. His contributions in 2014-2015 on drums / keys and then in 2017-2018 playing keys only were something where I only fully grasped his role in the radical action and meltdown video packages. Thank god we have the music and fitting they just released the rest of the single song a night stuff from 2015 right before this happened. Listen to the tunes and celebrate the guy! Will be nice to see him highlighted in the KC doc when that comes out this year!

Sad to hear of Bill's passing.  I preferred him on the kit compared to Stacey.  He was less bombastic and just stayed in the pocket.  I felt it was a great balance between Gavin's bombastic nature and Pat's eccentricities.

A lovely bit sharing fripps thoughts and some info on how hard bill worked in KC to persevere and play shows - his willpower and strength is admirable. Also includes Fripps wife’s heartfelt remembrance.....Bill seems like he was a great friend in addition to an excellent musician. Godspeed.

Sad thought of the day is: the four drummer scenario will never come to fruition. Unless Belew wants to really step up.

When they announced the move to the double quartet, I remember my mind going a million directions wondering how they would go to 4 drummers, with 2 of them also playing keys and how utterly insane and on board with it I was. Alas, it will likely never happen, but hey who ever thought king crimson would come back as a 7 man lineup in 2014 and still be moving forward with most of that lineup in 2020?

If bills death triggered them to hang it up, I wouldn’t blame them. Fripp very clearly was quite dear friends with bill and his involvement in present KC was clearly important to all members. If they did the 2020 tour and the documentary and called it a day, I wouldn’t blame them. Everything from 2014-present is a bonus anyway given no one thought the band would come back after 2008. Plus the spoils they’ve done of how much they’ve released from the current lineup.....

Looking forward to the doc extra knowing that there will inevitably be some Bill fun in it, hopefully that full hour rehearsal space recording they did on video will be on it!
