Blackmore and Fripp


I've been in King Crimson mode recently, revisiting most of their discography. Of course, everybody knows Fripp is a genius. If anybody needs any proof, here it is:

and I was wondering if anybody here knows of any mutual admiration between him and our Ritchie, two opinionated, eclectic and so typically british characters. Of course, back in 1969, somebody in DP must have been listening to the first KC record as the Into the fire riff is quite close to the one of 21st century schizoid man.

Not from Fripp but RB has often said how much he likes 20th CSM, recall he said it was the first song he’d heard he couldn’t work out how to play, or something like that.
Yeah, I remember arguing with a school friend about the 2 riffs, and what was a rip off of the other, don’t know the chromology but I’m farily certain RB copied or was influenced by the KC track, and not the other way round

I think so as well. KC were the talk of the town in London 1969 and that monstrous riff must have shocked a lot of people. I think it could actually be more Roger stuff, anyway.

Re:


When Robert was recording Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), he asked Bowie how he envisioned the guitar part to go;

"We were doing either 'Up the Hill Backwards' or 'It's No Game', and I said, 'Any suggestions?'" Fripp recalled. "And David replied, "Ritchie Blackmore!" Because David isn't really a guitarist, he couldn't give me more of a ground plan that that, but I knew what he meant."[9]
