I never saw King Crimson or Van Der Graaf Generator live. But I did manage to see David Cross from King Crimson and David Jackson from Van Der Graaf Generator in the David Cross Band. David Cross plays the electric violin and David Jackson plays keyboards boards and Clarinet...
Van Der Graaf Generator were formed at Manchester University in lovely Lancashire by the banks of the river Irwell. Or the Seine of the North.😊
Myself and a friend flew from Kerry airport to Frankfurt Hahn in July or was it August 2017. We were on our way to The Night Of The Prog Festival in Loreley. It's a spectacular setting next to the river Rhine.
The Nazis built the stone amphitheatre and now it's used for concerts. Now we have our own Fascists in government preventing us from seeing live music. But we can go to work or to the supermarket though. Ok rant over!
It was a great weekend with wonderful music and weather. We found a Swiss pub that brought your drinks to your table and outside the arena we found a log cabin pub and restaurant that served homebrew. Cloudy stuff like homebrew but you had no ill effects from it.
Probably one of the highlights of the festival was seeing The David Cross Band. Some kind person on You Tube filmed The David Cross Band performing King Crimson's "Starless."
