@allmusic : While that band recorded and performed, he also led a new band which borrowed its name from his first group, the League of Gentlemen. After releasing three albums, the new version of King Crimson broke up in 1984; the League of Gentlemen split soon afterward.

@last.fm : Fripp began playing guitar at the age of eleven. He says he was tone-deaf with no sense of rhythm when he started. His comment on dealing with the obstacle is “Music so wishes to be heard that it sometimes calls on unlikely characters to give it voice”.

@Discogs : Also well known for the development of Frippertronics and Soundscapes, a method of making a lot of noise with one guitar through the use of tape / digital delay, rack-mount synthesizer units, and other effects. He also owns and operates his own record label Discipline Global Mobile which specializes in re-releases of King Crimson material, as well as side projects from many of the rotating KC members, himself included.
