King Crimson

Steve Turner, Beat Instrumental, January 1972

Pete Sinfield is, of course the Bernie Taupin... the Keith Reid... of King Crimson. Together with Robert Fripp he forms the lowest common denominator of the entity 'Crimso' who were the most promising group to appear one year not too long ago. Unless you happen to know where he sits when the current staff take to the boards he's the one you never recognise. The one that never 'appears'.
