I actually had listened to a lot of Fripp previous to Jets including his work on Pawn Hearts by Van Der Graaf and of course the Cheerful Insanity of Giles Giles and Fripp as well as the Crimson stuff. In fact I recognized it as Fripp before reading the liner notes when I first heard it in my pals record store (I worked there part time). I also can't buy the idea of Fripp allowing a wrong attribution like has been suggested. He always seemed to me to be a painfully forthright person and tho' he clearly has an ego I don't think he tied it to his guitar prowess. In fact one reason I like him is that he doesn't play the "rock guitarist look at me" thing. Besides his best solo was on Blank Frank IMHO.

All that being said Paul Rudolph has always been a bit of a fave for me but I have a lot of faves like him.

I'll be meeting Michael Giles pretty soon. He lives in Bath where my wife is from and Michael and my father-in-law have been drinking buddies for thirty years. I was given a cd of Michael Gile's Mad Band and its quite a listen: one piece is built on the sound of them ripping up tape. All in all a good representation of the gentleman's eccentricity. Maybe I can pump him for some good Fripp stories...

this is a longish article about the unexpected new Bowie recordings; seems Fripp nearly gave the game away...
