I’d say Bruford - I haven’t heard any Cross or Wetton solo though.

Don't quite understand the poll question either and think that whichever it is, I'd have liked to see Adrian Belew listed.

Wetton is the most prolific and, in a way, the most interesting.  

But I'd say Adrian Belew.

Bruford
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

From the list, Fripp.  Otherwise, I would have voted Tony Levin.

Easily Fripp. Bruford's done some good stuff too. I'll have to check out what David Cross was up to after KC.

I voted for David Cross. I suspect that many PA members haven't heard his albums, none of my friends who are into prog heard any of them until I played some for them. His best album, "Exiles," is very close to King Crimson in sound. It only has 45 ratings. His other albums, even less. Would have voted Fripp (love Exposure) but he has too many duds for my taste. Wetton is way too commercial for me. Bruford probably is a close second to Cross.
