Tonight was (probably) my last ever King Crimson gig. I don\’t expect they will tour again, and the 4 nights in New York at the weekend are just not possible both from a time away from home perspective and the need to take my Dad to the rugby!
The evening started with a chat with Sid Smith again (Biography Person) included a filmed interview which I hope will be posted soon (http://www.dgmlive.com/news.htm). If you see me swearing gently mother, it was a quote from Friendy Person. !!
The show was a blast, but shorter than others. I found it strange finally having a gig where all I could see of Mr Fripp was the top of his head (as did the vast majority of the crowd)! Somehow his music was more present in the mix as a result.
Friendy person and I quickly moved the car post gig (we\’d left someone with a tight exit) and returned to the bar opposite the venue where a Boddington\’s was welcome. Floyd\’s Comfortably Numb on the jukebox, and then back to the car. The venue was by now lights out, closed and dead. Very sad.
A quick run to the subway to drop friendy person off with a quick farewell (his train was waiting), and back to the digs. Nursing the car back to try to avoid refuelling before returning to the airport tomorrow.
And so to bed.
