Tony Levin

What's an alumni? Is that what silver foil is made of? No, you buffoon - this is where you post about ex-members of the band.

I'm not going to disagree with that, but since you brought up "Gordian Knot", Sean Malone is pretty incredible too.

Added note: If anybody on the planet has not purchased the first "Gordian Knot" with Trey and Sean, you are really missing out on some incredible music.

And the second one's even more amazing.

Cool clip, glad you're back to putting up stuff like this. Tony looks odd without the 'stache. Anyone got pictures of him with hair? That would be weird.

stick video

Short but sweet. I always dug the videos on this site. I must have missed something while on vacation because they were all gone when I returned. I'm just assumming it was more crap about copyright or pirating, but really. The videos are great and just inspire us, the buyers, to purchase more stuff so they, the sellers get rich. I say host the site offshore on Sealand or Lower Slobovia and let's watch videos! Yahoooo! :lol: I just can't believe I can watch a donkey doing nasty stuff with a young lady but no way are we going to let you watch King Crimson related videos. We have finally reached Hell and Ashlee Simpson is without a doubt .......SATAN!

Top picture is 1977 - during PG's first tour.

Second picture is 1978 during the PG II album sessions (I have the album version of that with the original inner bag and there's a tiny little picture of TL with a beard on that).

I guess the last pic is from around 1980.

Thanks. That is RF on the left, correct? I thought he had done away with the beard in 1974, after KC dissolved. That's why I was curious as to the date.

Also, I thought Tony and RF had only met in about 1980. Well, what do I know...
