From Robert Fripp and David Singletons’ appearance at The MusicFest Café in Bethlehem (September 26th, 2022). RF responds to a question about his time playing with The Damned...
The video selection is of Robert telling the story of his time playing with The Damned.
During our evenings together Robert would sometimes apologize for “wittering on” when telling these tales. Wrongly in my opinion. I found it fascinating, entertaining and still very much alive - part of an enduring expanded present moment.
And for those interested in Crimson minutiae, it adds a touch of background to the video of their performance at The Alabamahalle in 1982 (as included in the 1980s boxed set), which is the recording that Robert describes.
