    RIP Bill Rieflin (King Crimson)

    Unbelievably sad [considering what he went through last year - and now this]... From Robert Fripp's FB page. No cause cited.

    Very sad. We knew something was wrong.
    He did not know that the sword he'd hold, would turn his priceless empire into fool's gold...

    Yeah, it was rarely directly mentioned but he had been ill for some time, hence his absence from the recent Crimson tours.

    RIP

    I thought it had turned out that his absence was due to his late wife's illness.

    Wow... We all knew this was possible, but right after Bill Plummer?

    F*ck Cancer.

    RIP.

    RIP Bill Reiflin (Crimson, R.E.M)

    More sad news with loss of Bill Reiflin as reported by Ultimate Classic Rock.

  21. #21
    I remember about 15 or so years ago, I read an article in Guitar Player, about Rieflin's Slow Music project, which featured Fripp and REM's Peter Buck. I thought, "One guy from Ministry, one guy from King Crimson and one guy from REM, playing improvised music, this might be interesting". I don't think I ever got to hear anything by them, though (apparently nothing was ever released?). I did see him perform with King Crimson in 2014, and I have a couple of the releases Fripp has issued from the recent touring cycles.

    RIP

    Sad to read. I suppose not a huge surprise, given his recent absence from Krim. The 8 man version of KC was great and his contributions will be missed.

    RIP
    No humor please, we're skittish.
