Saturday morning I went to see the Fripp Siblings speak. I have long been a King Crimson fan but I have also followed Mr. Fripp’s work and writings outside the context of KC. This was a rare opportunity for me to hear Mr. Fripp speak rather than play live and in person and he said some things that really resonated with me.
He used stories from his past to illustrate profound concepts in an informal way. I have to admit that from my exposure to his work I felt I would be somewhat intimidated by his presence live but didn’t feel that way at all. Sister (as Patricia Fripp calls herself) played a complimentary role to Mr. Fripp and helped the morning work well. I was also impressed at the thoughtfulness and respect of the audience. Money and time well spent.
