Question, will it be better than Rush's Clockwork Angels?

Not one of the 'Big 6', but same generation and that was a good album.

Does anyone know exactly what happened to Adrian Belew, and why he hasn't been able to participate?

Fantastic! I love Belew, but in some ways it's more exciting not having him involved in this lineup, feels like more of a real new KC era, rather than a continuation of the 80s-2000s (although, it of course will be that to some extent). Could easily be disappointing, but will doubtless be interesting.

One point, relating to any live shows they do: is Jakko's voice high enough to cover Belew's range/songs? Could it be that instead, they do versions of some of the 70s vocal songs (which Belew didn't perform as far as I'm aware, except Schizoid Man) which are more in his range? Though I guess it's largely unlikely, three drummers would suggest continuing to move in the same direction they've been going, which wouldn't really fit with that, but you never know, there could be some rearrangements.

Good new , great that BR is onboard, his work with Fripp have been some of my best Fripp moments for years, they fit !

And Collins off course, was a lack of acustic instruments in KC.
 
But i hope we dont get anything like the last one, was without ball's.

I hope it's somewhere between TPTB & Scarcity with more wind instruments but i'll happily buy whatever they do and go to any concerts.

A new article showed up this morning on Ultimate Guitar where Fripp announces Crimso is preparing for "action of the savage variety":

Three drummers?... Well, I hope at least one of them will play the gong and/or the triangle. Stern Smile

Yeah, according to Fripp there are no plans for new material, just "reconfigured" versions of existing material.  I suspect that will change once they are up and running.  We'll see.

If they don't release any new material they're still dead to me (or at least some great reinterpretations of the old stuff) .
