Over the history of King Crimson, there have been 18 musicians and 2 lyricists considered "official" members of the band.  This poll is to determine the most highly regarded members of King Crimson in the PA community.  This is a multiple vote poll, so choose members you think made the most important contributions to the worldwide phenomenon we all know, love, and occasionally fear, the band called, "King Crimson".

Why so little love for Adrian Belew so far. Great guitarist, vocalist and lyricist and primarily responsible for their resurgence in the 80's and beyond.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

You forgot "a knowledgeable experimenter/on-spot 'sound engineer' ". Check out this amazing instructional video featuring him:

I vote for him---overall like 80's KC more than 70's know I am in minority. That live 80's concert of them is amazing.

Just curious but am I the only one who finds Belew's vocals and guitar playing annoying at times...?

No...you're not the only one...though I can't say I ever find his guitar playing annoying, just his vocals.  I remember reading a KC review in the mid 80's and the reviewer hit it on the head for me.  He said AB was a poor man's David Byrne and that he tries too hard to be "weird".

Michael Giles; absolutely underrated and totally essential to that crucial band. No version after that was ever the same.

Michael Giles - a hugely musical drummer.  I can spend hours just concentrating on his playing, always finding some new facets and flourishes throughout.
