Great point...after giving it some thought I had to add him as well.  Funny, I wonder how many of us voted for the entire original lineup?

I gave my votes to Fripp, Bruford, and Belew.  To me, they're the three members who have contributed the most to making King Crimson what it is/was.

Bruford's probably my favourite musician ever, so that's an easy vote for me. I just love his drum style, it's very inspiring.

What! No votes for Andy?!? Man I love his loose drumming on Lizard. So hard to duplicate, it's insane.

^ ... over Robert by seven votes, which is also interesting, ... which I can understand. I mean, people by now may be tired of voting for him.

Levin over Wetton by 14 ... hm ... . Ermm

Levin 25, Wetton 11
Fripp 26, Lake 29, Bruford 33

Bizarre, people do know that Lake is only on 2 albums & Fripp is on all of them, right?

Maybe it's just their way of making it fair.

Based on the votes received there are a couple of interesting facts:

1)  Bill Bruford received the most votes, even more than RF!  I think they would both find that amusing for very different reasons Wink 

2)  Based on the 6 highest vote receivers, it seems that PA members would be happy if RF reunited a "double trio - three bassist" lineup consisting of:

RF - Guitar
Adrian Belew - Guitar/Vox
Greg Lake - Bass/Vox
Bill Bruford - Drums
Tony Levin - Bass/Stick
John Wetton - Bass/Vox

What do you think of this new "double trio"?
