Many of us have seen Crimson live, I saw tours that included Bruford, Levin, and Belew in the double-trio format. "Discipline", "Beat" "Thrak". But this tour with David Sylvian was unbelievable in power and atmosphere. Fripp played straight out power fuzz and tape-looped ecstasy jam with guitarist Michael Brooks and Trey Gunn on stick here's "Darshan", the funkiest guitar jam ever in the progressive scene.It' s long, but it is great), and I am so glad to find the tour was filmed:







Bringing back memories of Adrian Belew in Elephant Talk.

As far as replacement singers sounding too much like the originals... if they picked someone with a new sound then people would complain that it doesn't sound like the "old" stuff. Just can't win...lol.
