EDIT: THERE'S AN UPDATE ABOUT THE BAND HERE!
According to a post made yesterday, everything is now confirmed and ready to go!
The 8th incarnation of King Crimson will be a three drummers one: Gavin Harrison (drums), Bill Rieflin (drums), Pat Mastelotto (drums), Tony Levin (bass), Mel Collins (saxophones), Jakko Jakszyk (vocals and guitars) and Robert Fripp (guitars).
Fripp notes about this comeback: "The Point Of Crim-Seeing was of a conventional Back Line – Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin, Tony Levin and Pat Matstelotto - reconfigured as the Front Line, with Mel Collins, Jakko Jakszyk and myself as Back Line. All the Crims have expressed great excitement at the return to Go! mode. Given the considerable commitments of all members, it will take a year before Crimson is able to perform.
Bill Rieflin mentioned to me that he told Jacknife Lee (REM and Robbie Williams’ producer) of the triple drumming, and Jacknife’s reply: Of course. We know what two drummers sound like! I’m hoping we’ll find out, and have a pile of fun doing so."
Still acording to Fripp's journal the band members have exactly one year to be ready: "Dear brother crims, we have one year to prepare for action of the savage variety, and be in Go! mode for september 2014… but essentially, King Crimson is in motion."
Robert Fripp expects that they’ll be rehearsing, in full and small group formations over that period.
That's it, one year for Proggers that can wait!
