King Crimson?


You got to have some chops to play with Fripp...

RIP Bill R

I guess the one time I saw The Human Lightbulb 💡 and Rapid Eye Movement at the Vote For Change concert at the Some Phone Company Center Bill R not Bill B would have been behind the kit although it could have been Bill A or Kid A for all anyone would have known


REM/Bruce at MCI, Bill R on drums...

Something I read somewhere this morning made me think that Bill R. played bass and keys with King Crimson. But unclear.

Ok thanks

So it was Bill R


The entire concert was shown live I think on Sundance...I have a very hard to find promo only DVD of it somewhere


My recollections are few but
John Mellencamp started it off and was fantastic..
Pearl Jam was great as always
Dave Matthews Band has the longest set..maybe 75 minutes..and though I usually think I hate them they were great
Stipe looked like a gay human lightbulb..when he sang Patti Smith parts with Bruce on Because the night it was fantastic
My only time seeing Jackson Browne with/and Bonnie Raitt...also James Taylor I think...spellbinding with just a guitar
Bruce’s Mary’s Place with long rap or speech in middle was amazing

One of my best ticket purchases...

I bought a ticket on the way into that show from a dude who turned out to be a local high end corporate ticket-scalper. Paid $50 I think and had a great seat. I was supposed to go to John Vanderslice/Mountain Goats (who headlined that night?) that night at Black Cat ... because I was friends with John V's mom. I bailed on that show for this one.

I bought tickets when they went on sale on internet cause I was at some friends wedding in Wisconsin...I still remember it was at the lame “business center” at some lame hotel...maybe one of my first times buying tickets on internet?

Got nosebleeds way up behind stage..expensive awful seats...nevertheless as I said one of my best purchases

I can’t do in person ticket scalping buying or selling..simply never works out for me..I am totally incompetent at it

BILL RIEFLIN, DRUMMER FOR MINISTRY, R.E.M., AND KING CRIMSON DEAD AT 59
The drummer was also known for his work with KMFDM and Swans.

didn't even know he had writing credits on some of my favorite ministry songs from a MITTW
the drum parts are critical

I always liked that Honyedrippers version
Phil's is the best
Cat Power has a good one
I just read Iggy and the Heptones did one too (not together)

Was in heavy rotation as sidehatch sing the kids to bed songs (and I always did the honeydrippers version)

Hopefully Phillips had the songwriting credits...would have meant a huge chuck of change

Like anything by Plant post Led Zep I try to like it but no

That's pretty much the only Plant song post  In Through the Out Door that I like

I did dig some of the Firm's stuff (page of course)

Page and Paul Rogers


Radioactive is awesome


Diminishing returns after that

I think Page just got burnt out...he had an awesome 15-20 years if you count all his great session work

Plant’s heart is in the right place but his music is so boring
