King Crimson

Led by group founder, guitar hero and Mellotron virtuoso Robert Fripp, King Crimson has been a leading force in prog rock since the release of its groundbreaking 1969 debut, In the Court of the Crimson King. In the decades since, this pioneering unit has continued to embody the progressive rock movement with a series of some of that music’s most enduring albums: Islands, Red, Discipline, Beat, Three of a Perfect Pair, and more. Classic Crimson tracks like “I Talk to the Wind,” “Heartbeat,” “Sleepless,” and “21st Century Schizoid Man” continue to reach generation after generation of rock enthusiasts.

The current eight-piece lineup of King Crimson includes group founder Robert Fripp (guitar), Tony Levin (bass), Jakko Jakszyk (guitar, vocals), and Mel Collins (flute, saxophones) alongside drummers and multi-instrumentalists Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto, Jeremy Stacey and Bill Rieflin.
