May be the problem is your paents played them while you were growing up?
In my case it was myself who bought all the LP's up to Discipline and I can assure you're missing something. Even if you find the music of King Crimson to be old and boring you should admit Fripp is a monster playing guitar. I've seen K.C. live and it's impressive to see him playing. Just pick any KC DVD and take a look, considering you're not impressed through your ears.
Your post is very mature, and helps me forget about the kiddie attitudes that tend to proliferate on Metal forums in general. Thank you.
Your post alos made me think, and I am really grateful for that.
It wasn't my parents (t hey'r the ones that turned me WAY off of Santana...a perspective I later found entirely valid later in life) . The people that used to play KC around me in college were mainly
I ended up turned off to the idea of checking Fripp out
in any way objectively, I have found the way to open my mind more and give him another try. It's a bit much to ask once again for your opinion, as you have already helped me a great deal, but could you
reccomend a sopecific video of Fripp that is your own favorite (i.e., showcases the lead guitar playing in particular?).
Again, your patience, help,and
maturity is greatly appreciated. It can be rare to experience such on this type of forum. Or perhaps I am still experiencng Full Moon Productions kiddie fallout.
