Yes a lot of people care. Everything Fripp said is always true...

I suppose I should put this little bit of information to settle the thread.
This was posted by Sid Smith on the forums of DGM.
Sid Smith is the one who posts the news on the website and is the King Crimson archivist.
He posted this today:
 
There are no plans for King Crimson to play anywhere at the moment any time soon.

Best wishes

Sid

This is description of Fripp's night dreams. This kind of stuff is not very rare in his diaries.

Hm... I was getting excited. Not until news of a new album or tour dates will I get excited again about it.

Hope of course for new music, but high doubts for sure.

Considering this interview (posted to PA on another thread), I'd find it hard to believe that Robert would pick up the King Crimson lance & shield yet again!

He sounds quite beat with the business B.S. involved in being a musician.

It was clearly a dream (nightmare), Fripp is often a stream of consciousness poster.

If we get another incarnation it had better be really really good.  The last few have left me rather flat. Maybe an old incarnation and reform has a double meaning....

He needs some fresher musical voices in the band. He needs to go back being the sole guitarist this time around. I have nothing against Belew, I would just like to hear Fripp spread his wings a little bit more in the new incarnation. I would say getting some different instruments would also be a good thing like woodwind player who plays all the instruments in that family, a trumpeter would  be an interesting addition as well. KC also needs a percussionist who plays all percussion instruments. Fripp just needs to mix it up more this next time around.

Darn its a hoax is it? Well Fripp is not going to reform the band at this stage and may never at this rate.

Read the sentences well, it's clear that what he was saying is that he still has nightmares about the subject of reforming KC (November and December together do not add up to 70 gigs even playing everyday including Christmas as he "wondered"), and so he was glad that he awoke at 06h00 stopping the nightmare.
 
Just some more of his irony, not gonna happen.

Like always with KC, the next album (and I'm sure there will be one some day) is gonna be something pretty different. That's why I'm always buying their albums.

............I thought that was about as likely as Jim Morisson reforming THE DOORS Ermm.............
A Scarcity Of Miracles was/is a splendid album, I don't mind if Fripp continues these Crimso related 'ProjecKct's' at all - as for KC - as long as Wetton & Bruford are involved, count me in Bowdown............BIG TIME !!!!...............

Darkshade, I think this thread was updated, but the original post that started it might have even been from before even the `Scarcity Of Miracles' album? Last I checked, wasn't Fripp retiring?!

Tom, you know my opinion on `Scarcity'! Zzzzzz....!

He has retired from Crimson though he still is releasing music. Any speculation on him bringing back KC is just that, speculation.

Hi,
 
I would rather have Robert and his wife for tea, and if he feels like playing around on a couple of strings that is fine, but no need to ... and we can have a fine conversation about philosophy, literature and photography ...
 
That child, named KC, is long gone and it's time is already over.
 
And it won't help their stature any, I do not think ... and is a drain that I do not believe that Robert wants to go through again. Speaking of that, wasn't there a note somewhere that Bill Bruford retired?

If A Scarcity of Miracles is indicative of anything, Uncle Bob would do well to enjoy his retirement (maybe, make a cameo appearance here and there now and then, and/or strum a few chords as a guest on an album by a reputable band).
