It could well be because he had no writer's credit on CB. (Neither did Eddie
Cochran, but that's another story.) Also, the Dazed and Confused movie was
almost ten years ago; Small Soldiers was what, two years ago? Maybe RP's
changed his tune. Wouldn't be the first time. Or maybe he has no say.

If it wasn't before, it is now. :-) One normally says "to put the kibosh on,"
but hey, English is a very flexible language.

And tickets will probably be more expensive. If you have those beefs, just wait
till the spring, when he's due to tour solo.

I dig Crimso too, so I'm a contented camper. And I'd love to see JPJ get up and
jam with them.

The only downside to this double bill that I can see: Robert Fripp has a big
problem with tapers. That means venue security will be tighter, and it'll be
harder to tape Jonesy's set as a result.
