That wouldn't be a hard thing to do though, would it?

Well for starters they have to beat this one:

Wow!

That's excellent! I'm a sucker for multiple percussionists in a band, so this is some sweet stuff IMO.

Please, oh please, let their be a new studio album!

I don't think that VDGG are considered one of the classic Big Six.  Last decade: Genesis - no releases; Pink Floyd - no releases; Jethro Tull - no releases (unless you count Thick as a Brick II, but since Ian Anderson solo that is a short stretch; Yes - Fly From Here; ELP - No Releases.  King Crimson - The Power To Believe (2003)

Certainly the best announcement this year!!! I'm surprised (and a bit disappointed) that Adrian Belew is not part of the line-up but I'm 100% sure that Fripp will deliver this one again. Can't wait to hear more news, it's gonna be awesome!!!

This just made my day! King Crimson is my favorite, but I had given up hope a couple of years ago that they would ever continue.
With that lineup, it seems like something really new will come out of this, which would be great.

That's why I love KC music so much, they always(Fripp) renew themselves.

Just hit the Discipline site and had to read this three times to be sure I wasn't dreaming Wink

Very excited to see Mel Collins signing on...next to Jaxon he's my fave winds guy.  Interesting...no Belew...I always felt his personality was too dominant in the 80's/90's/00's Crimso and I'm very curious to hear what they write without his lyric and vocal input...if in fact this 7 headed Hydra has any room for vocals with 3 drummers!

Very excited. As far as I'm concerned, The Power To Believe was the last KC album, everything else has been KC ProjeKcts, which may have some similarities to various KC-albums. Similar to King Crimson-proper, but not the same, and not worth comparing to this new lineup.

Probably the only "classic era" band where this news would sound great to me.

I do wish Belew was on board, I thought he was the one who wanted KC to return most all these years.

2 more bass players would be great.

If Bob wants to follow the lead of all the other prog bands (Yes, Pink Floyd, etc.) he can have his own cruise!  They could call it "In the Wake of Poseidon".  

Or something.  I bet Toyah would love that, especially if it made money!

This is great indeed. I thought Mr Fripp was done with King Crimson... But he has said that King Crimson would return whenever he was needed... or something like that. So, I guess it is time. We'll see if King Crimson remains as innovative and ground breaking as they are reputed to be.

I'm also disappointed at the absence of Adrian Belew, but Jakko is a very good vocalist and guitarist as well.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!
