Well - today is such a day.
I first saw Robert Fripp in the Exeter ABC in 1971 - dominated by Lizard. Then again in York in 1973/4 with Bruford, Muir and Wetton alongside. Then again in 198x at the Leeds Irish Centre with the League of Crafty Guitarists. To my abiding regret, I had to miss a gig in Manchester in the 90s with David Sylvian when I was ill - now of course never to be repeated.
But this year Spike and I will see him in Aylesbury on 1st September. With every chance of a second viewing in Birmingham.
I wonder if he remembers me?
