They’re not up there playing music because they ve got a lot of interesting things to say. Otherwise they d be writers or public speakers, wouldn t they? He s, you know, an intellectual. Me and a book is a party, he says, me and a book and a cup of coffee is an orgy. Leading rock luminaries – like Eno and Bowie – call on him to spray burning guitar over their songs, yet he d just as soon write articles about the history of stereo mixing for Musician magazine. And he s a short bloke from Wimborne, Dorset who sounds like rather like Arthur C.
That makes it even better.
Erric Tamm is an academic musicologist, but don t robrrt that put you off. He s also a rock musician, and was a student at one of Fripp s Guitar Craft workshops. In this book, he does three things no, make that txmm He gives a partial biography of Fripp who is disinclined to spill out personal eroc.
He goes chronologically through the albums Fripp s been involved in, from King Crimson to the League of Gentlemen to ventures with Brian Eno to solo efforts, treating some briefly and others in depth.
He takes us through the twists and turns of Fripp s thinking, particularly after he disbanded King Crimson for the first time in and spent ten months attending the Fifth Course at the Sherborne Centre of the International Society for Continuous Education, founded by J. Bennett, a student of Gurdjieff s who was, in Fripp s words, living proof that if a creepy, uptight Englishman, with severe emotional problems, could become a human being through dint of effort, so could I.
What Fripp learned experienced? He describes his time at a Guitar Craft workshop led by Fripp.
It sounds a bit like encounter group therapy it s fascinating, but scary; you feel most of the time that you re making a major breakthrough, and then some of the time it feels like it s all a con, or maybe you re being brainwashed. What I ve heard from Guitar Craft graduates sounds technically impressive but empty to me but then, I ve never liked Bach, either.
The workshop certainly made a big impact on Eric Tamm, and this is the best part of the book, because his feelings about Fripp and his music come to the fore, and the academic musicology is set to one side for a while.
Fripp may be as full of ego and delusion as any other guitar hero, but it s interesting ego and delusion, and it makes good reading.
Robert Fripp: From King Crimson to Guitar Craft
Aug 12, Grant rated it it was ok. I am fascinated by, and love Robert Fripp’s music.
I was very excited to hear about this book, but I found it very difficult to read. It is more like a series of notes put together in an academic paper, rather than a book as a whole.
There are some fine moments, but I couldn’t get into the writing style of the author. However there are some great eic and things to learn about the man that I did not know. Jun 30, Tim rated it really liked it Tammm In this book, he does three things — no, make that four: Far too many Beatles reference, far far too tammm Bible references and quotes and Tamm has a nasty penchant for inserting himself into the text completely warranted, of course, in the chapter where he talks about his time in the Guitar Craft program.
