Another Lame Claim to Fame

I used to subscribe to the King Crimson newsletter. They would often have contests in which readers would be challenged to come up with the fewest number of steps to connect some musician or other to guitarist Robert Fripp. Thanks to my “The Trees: Rush Tribute” bandmate Ryan Nutter‘s recent performance with Bernie Worrell (below), I now have a Fripp number of my own and it is: FOUR. Even though I can’t imagine being worthy, this makes me very happy!  Worrell, a founder of Parliament-Funkadelic, played with Talking Heads, who recorded with Fripp and Adrian Belew, who have direct connections to many of my favorite artists (Bowie!) and indirect connections to dozens more (Eno, Gabriel, The Police, Devo, Pink Floyd . . .)
