I have to say this sounds more like the Tom Verlaine I'm
familiar with! Getting a bunch of musicians together?
Nah, Tom's too much of a loner. Renting a roomful of amps?
That's our man!

I dunno - Fripp's a pretty Machiavellian guy. He comes across as
all humble and insists he's not the leader of King Crimson, yet on
the new album there's a track that Adrian Belew did that didn't make
it onto the final album. Fripp said it was Belew's call, yet in the
end it was cut despite Adrian's wishes.
While I love Fripp's playing, I think he's one of the most pompous
arses in the business. Hey, who's ever seen "Celebrity Deathmatch"
on MTV? This week, a tag-team match between Todd and Fripp versus
Tom and Andy Partridge!
