The 8th incarnation of King Crimson will be Gavin Harrison, Bill
Rieflin, Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Mel Collins, Jakko Jakszyk and
Writing on his (not yet published) dairy for September 24th Fripp
notes "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."
Robert goes on "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."
In his (not yet published) diary for September 7th Fripp begins "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 expects that they'll be rehearsing, in full and small group
formations over that period.
