If A Scarcity of Miracles is indicative of anything, Uncle Bob would do well to enjoy his retirement (maybe, make a cameo appearance here and there now and then, and/or strum a few chords as a guest on an album by a reputable band).

I just received this email regarding Bob Fripp's Guitar Circle of Europe.....I think he is now retired from performing, and simply wishes to teach and share his experience.  I wish him well, he never received the acclaim and riches that he deserved. 

From: The GCE <gce-office@t-online.de>

Subject: RF & OCG VI Performance Project in Italy - coming up soon! 

Date: February 16, 2013 1:39:43 PM CST

To: The GCE <gce-office@t-online.de>


Dear All,

The RF & OCG VI Performance Project is confirmed, you can find the course info at:

http://www.guitarcircleofeurope.com/2013-04-13.html

The course begins in 8 weeks, in the wonderful Casa Stella Maris (Retreat House)  in Caorle (Italy, close to Venice), we'll prepare and rehearse with RF towards a Performance in the auditorium on Friday, April 19th.

The capacity of the retreat house is limited to 37 participants, if you wish to attend please apply as soon as possible.

Hernan Nunez is the Registrar for this course, please contact him directly if you need further information:

Best wishes.

Hi,
 
I would rather have Robert and his wife for tea, and if he feels like playing around on a couple of strings that is fine, but no need to ... and we can have a fine conversation about philosophy, literature and photography ...
 
That child, named KC, is long gone and it's time is already over.
 
And it won't help their stature any, I do not think ... and is a drain that I do not believe that Robert wants to go through again. Speaking of that, wasn't there a note somewhere that Bill Bruford retired?
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

He has retired from Crimson though he still is releasing music. Any speculation on him bringing back KC is just that, speculation.

Darkshade, I think this thread was updated, but the original post that started it might have even been from before even the `Scarcity Of Miracles' album? Last I checked, wasn't Fripp retiring?!

Tom, you know my opinion on `Scarcity'! Zzzzzz....!

............I thought that was about as likely as Jim Morisson reforming THE DOORS Ermm.............
A Scarcity Of Miracles was/is a splendid album, I don't mind if Fripp continues these Crimso related 'ProjecKct's' at all - as for KC - as long as Wetton & Bruford are involved, count me in Bowdown............BIG TIME !!!!...............

Like always with KC, the next album (and I'm sure there will be one some day) is gonna be something pretty different. That's why I'm always buying their albums.

Read the sentences well, it's clear that what he was saying is that he still has nightmares about the subject of reforming KC (November and December together do not add up to 70 gigs even playing everyday including Christmas as he "wondered"), and so he was glad that he awoke at 06h00 stopping the nightmare.
 
Just some more of his irony, not gonna happen.

Bob could get a TV show.  Meditate on that a while.
