In the year 2000 a few internet friends, whom I had never met, were gathering in NashVegas, TN for to witness King Crimson "Warm Up" shows for their subsequent World Tour for The "Construction of Light". They were performing for three nights in a small club, which was a treat, indeed. (12th & Porter)

It was decided that we needed a way to spot one another and the Badge was born. I decided to try my hand at creating something for the occasion, having enough knowledge in Photoshop to be dangerous. Little did I know that my badge would be decent enough to confuse security.

It is rare to never that KC performs a "cover" but we were treated to this awesome version
of "Heroes" as an encore.
This is not the Nashville performance but, you get the idea. ( Video courtesy of Bootleg TV )
Robert Fripp played this lead guitar part on the original with Bowie. Adrian Belew became David's band director for the "Sound & Vision" tour so, he also had previous experience with this song.

Hey you Block!
Welcome back to the Blog-O-sphere!
You've been well and truly missed!
; D

This encore is brilliant!
Ade's voice is just perfect!
As usual Trey's bass lines are excellent!
Between you and I - I think this version is better than Bowie's....

Thanks for putting this up Blockie!
What I wouldn't give to have been at the original encore in lucky duck!
; D

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!


Pure perfection....

Thanks Wendy. It was incredible to be at those shows, in such a small space. The Encore blew me away...

It's nice to be missed. My posts are sparse but I'm playing catch up. ;-)

I had a nice Thanksgiving and I hope y'all did as well.
