king crimson fan

Hi John - I was reading on your Web site that one your favorite albums of 2001 was Red by legendary art rock band King Crimson.How did you come to rediscover this great album, and has King Crimson's music influenced you in any way? Would also love to know if you have a favorite track on Red. Thanks!!Krista

"I remember the album coming out, but never really being a fan I stayed away from it- On a BBC special on progressive rock last year they mentioned that 'Red' had been a favourite of Kurt Cobain's. That intrigued me. I bought it, and fell in love with it- it's an edgy, punky record, but so beautiful and melodic at the same time. I was so happy to discover it, better late than never. "
