^^^ It's not necessary to improvise only in tracks structured for improvisation, though.   KC simply follow the rule of not playing every note the same way again so even in more composed tracks like One More Red Nightmare, actually especially on that track, the quality of playing is very improvised and organic.

He didn't really "leave". He just went on hiatus until Yes did something truly profound. So he returned to make Union. Approve

Bill as much as I love his drumming and talents can come across a douchbag.He talks about Yes in a condescending way and gives way too much credit to King Crimson

Yes is has always and will always be better than King Crimson

Compare Close To The Edge or Relayer to say Larks Tongues or Red it's not even close. Yes wins all the way. I guess Yes wanted to show him up. Sound Chaser. Bill Bruford who????Evil Smile We don't need that prick Evil Smile

He wasn't talking about what was better for you. He was talking about what was better for Bill. Both bands could compose, but KC decided to do more than that - improvise, and that was right up Bill's alley.

^ Then I must have had a reason for it, right? Either way, that does not give you a reason to be the smaller man. Be the bigger man.

f**k load of necklaces on Fripp
I'm trying to work out which of the others is John Wetton(and the bloke second from the left seems to be overdoing the 'being enigmatic' thingTongue
 
I don't think Wetton's in that pic. I think it's L-R: Fripp, Muir, Bruford, Cross.
Thanks. Have to admit my knowledge is not what it should be on Crimson in between ITWOP and Red


Aww sh*t look at my main man the pimp Tyga Fripp LOL
