So from the recent voting you chose that the best vocalist ever in KC was Greg Lake, John Wetton the best Bass Player and Bill Brufford the drummer.

Now vote for one of the 2 options>

Present Crimson:

Guitars - Fripp
Vocals - Belew
Bass - Levin
Drum - Mastelotto

or Crimson made from the voted musicians>

Guitars - Fripp
Vocals - Lake
Bass - Wetton
Drum - Brufford

And PLEASE give your perfect line up!

thanx!

My perfect lineup is:

Wetton-vox/bass
Fripp and Belew-guitars
David Cross-violin
Michael Giles-drums
Heaven's made a cesspool of us all.

The 1st option.I don't like so much the fact John Wetton plays bass and Greg Lake sings.This situation would be uncomfortable  for the two members.

Take the second option and remove Greg Lake, give vocals back to Wetton, and I'd be happy.

A replacement guitarist would spice things up a bit!

This, but then we'd have a great place for Ian McDonald to fill up! Flute, saxes, Mellotron and maybe additional guitars. However, that would have been better in 1975 than now. Now the current(-ish) line-up works better than I think that one would.

I guess I would prefer the imaginary line-up, but (but just as they played/sang back in the 70's). As a matter of fact, that would be my dream line-up, just add Ian McDonald on Mellotron, flute, sax, and backing vocals; David cross on Violin; and Keith Tippet on Piano... and even more, add Jamie Muir on percussions and Belew on additional guitars and vocals. And I guess Lake could do some additional bass too. And then let them play songs from all the 70's using all this musicians...
