Three Of A Perfect Pair – Adrian Belew

Last week I was lucky to attend a concert by the Adrian Belew Power Trio. It was just great – and yesterday I’ve found the acoustic version of this King Crimson tune from 2000, and now I can’t get it out of my mind. Fantastic.

    Heh, I’m going to see the Power Trio next week! In fact, I have one spare ticket. I managed to get tickets for Jethro Tull as well, and I found out that they play on that very same evening x(.

    However, I got myself a ticket for the 28th (Groningen), so if anyone is interested in seeing Adrian Belew for free (29th), be sure to let me know.

    Hi Eric! Welcome here – it was a great show here in Budapest, since then I listen to the Side Four album. Thanks for the music! :-)
    (I was the guy who made the interview with Adrian in the hotel lobby.)

    That was truly wonderful.

    It also supports this little theory I have, whereby any tune which remains standing gloriously in a stripped down acoustic version, is proof of a really, really good tune. QED.

    Oh, and hi Eric! It’s great to know you read up on KUR.

    Adrian Belew is a national treasure.

    Saw Belew two years ago in Sydney with a pick up band power trio. He was just jaw droppingly brilliant. You knew you were in the presence of someone with the music really in him. I imagine that feeling would have been what you got seeing someone like Hendrix or Miles.

    He is trully a musical giant… seems like a really nice bloke too.

    I have to second that. Outside of FZ, I’m not into guitar wankers at all. I can’t get through a Jeff Beck or a Vai album. But Adrian! Worlds apart. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the band.
