Boz RIP September 22, 2006
Written by Wilbert
I am very sad to read that Boz Burrell has died. The Island/Earthbound version of the band was my introduction to the band in 1972, when Earthboundís Schidzoid Man was played on the radio, the complete 11 minutes, 45 sec. Boz screamed his heart out on Schidzoid Man, very impressive. As Iíve read I understand that Boz had some difficulty sometimes with the lyrics, the three boys had some difficulty with Fripp and Fripp had some difficulty with the jamming-nature of this line up. But for me this was the King Crimson number one. Thank you Boz for your voice, spirit and power.

Waves sweep the sand from my island.
My sunsets fade.
Field and glade wait only for rain
Grain after grain love erodes my
High weathered walls which fend off the Read more

The Boz/Mel/Ian/Robert incarnation of Crim has been the most underrated of all. But the indelible influence of that lineup comes distinctly from the funkiness that Boz Burrell brought to the table that has been felt throughout to present day and beyond Read more

This is, indeed, a great recording. I find myself humming this tune
quite often, and I find it to be one of the ícoolerí Crimson tracks.
Boz gave King Crimson some soul and a bit of a different Read more

Islands didnt really do much for me as a recording, so it was with some reservation that I purchased the Ladies of the Road live CD set. I was just floored by Bozís live Read more
