On the classic that is “Starless”

Listening now to “Starless”, a memory comes vividly to mind. The drive from home to school my junior and senior year in high school took just over 12 minutes. I don’t know how many days I put my tape of Red into the player, found “Starless”, and began the drive blissing out to the ballad part, then zoning out to Fripp’s guitar edginess and Bruford and Wetton’s tension-building, then pulling into the parking lot with the sound of wildly blaring horns and bone-crunching bass lines screaming out the windows. There’s a very good reason this is my favorite King Crimson song…
