Well, Fripp easily gets my vote for being the man who has kept KC going throughout it's over 40 year history. Ian McDonald, Bill Bruford, Jamie Muir, Mel Collins, Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto also receive honourable mentions

Yeah, but Cross's violin parts on USA are overdubbed by one Jobson, who later played on UK with Wetton and Bruford. The version I have of that concert features the original parts by David Cross... though someone just mentioned on another thread that Jobson's overdubs are suposed to be somewhat better.

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"?
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

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

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

^ ... 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

Agree---and he's winning the poll which is interesting.

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