My thanks to ironageuk for spotting this appearance of KC. He writes "To mark the start of The Ashes
series, Gideon Coe’s BBC 6 Music show last night had a cricket theme,
including selections from vinyl addict and former England test player Derek Pringle.
Derek closed his selection with a rousing Red. Earlier in the day
on ’Test Match Special’ they’d previewed this show and were pooh poohing
his taste on the basis that on tour buses in his heyday, he’d take off
’perfectly nice’ stuff like Abba and George Benson and put on horrid
noise instead. Listen here if the Beeb lets you in your locale."

King Crimson turned up to play at Hyde Park supporting The Rolling Stones. Ian McDonald's diary notes "Up morning. Got bus to Hyde Park for Stones concert. ½ million people there. Did 35 minute spot. Great. Stones not too good. Walked for a meal. Back to flat. Lot of people came over (19). Nice."
Robert Fripp's journal records "Standing ovation. Mammoth Success, of importance which will take time
to appreciate. We’ll look back on this day in years to come and fully
realise its significance."
You can download the set they played that day here.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but when imitation simply becomes a rip-off it’s time to call it out. People are urged to avoid this website which borrowing heavily on the Guitar Craft / Guitar Circle- affiliated approach to the instrument. Robert Fripp commented “This site and Mr. Matteo Negrin has no connection to Guitar Craft, neither is he a pupil of mine. Anyone contacting Mr. Negrin and/or the site is warned.”
