Robert Fripp: “My professional life has been so devoid of joy”

Uncut joins Robert Fripp and the latest incarnation of King Crimson in the rehearsal studio to hear about their upcoming gigs, the problems with touring and his setlist plans, in the new issue, out now.

“My professional life has been so devoid of joy,” explains Fripp, marveling at his enjoyment of the rehearsals so far.

King Crimson tour the US in September.

The new issue of Uncut is out now.
