Quotes:

"King Crimson is, as always, more a way of doing things. When there is nothing to be done, nothing is done: Crimson disappears. When there is music to be played: Crimson reappears. If all of life were this simple" -Robert Fripp

Jokes:

Q: How many King Crimson members does it take to change a lightbulb? A: Bill to refuse to do it and practice the drums some more, Adrian to get the ladder and start changing it, Tony to stop Adrian and suggest a new and interesting way to change it, and Robert to complain that they're doing it wrong and break up the band.

Band Name Origins:

  • I read in an interview (I think w/ Robert Fripp) that the name King Crimson came from a wooden tomato crate with the paper labels on the end announcing "King Crimson". Submitted by: Willy Grigg
  • Their original lyricist, Peter Sinfield, thought of it as a synonym for BEELZEBUB, which is Hebrew for "Lord of the Flies". BEELZEBUB was Satan's chief lieutenant among the fallen angels. Submitted by: Bobo

Original Lyrics:

Story about this misheard lyric by: Jennifer

I was listening to this song one day, and out of the blue, I started laughing so hard because it sounded like Greg Lake was saying 'Cat Poop' instead of 'Cat Food'. It was one of the most funniest misheard lyrics I've ever heard.
