I'm reminded of what Baron said about the talentless often making the best music. Or what Mark E Smith often says about keeping the middle classes out of rock.
I just found this on Wiki - Fripp 'explaning' his solo:
The basis of the picking technique is to strike down on the on-beat and up on the off-beat. Then one must learn to reverse that. I'll generally use a downstroke on the down-beat except where I wish to accent a phrase in a particular way or create a certain kind of tension by confusing accents, in which case I might begin a run on the upstroke
'one'! what an utter cunt that man is. It's a fucking solo for Christ's sake man you tiresome old cock.
I'm so sick of this BS. Who the F*ck stated that rock music is only good if its fun to play, based on rockabilly, folk or blues? Rock can and is also based on Jazz and classical too. If you don't like it move on. But to claim this BS about classical shouldn't be in Rock music or middle class can't be involved in rock music what a load of punk shit? There are plenty of us who don't just want to hear ABC rock its called evolving. In kindergarten we were reading see spot run and thought it was fun, but we grew up and started reading something a little more interesting. Same goes for my rock - started playing simple cords then we wanted something a little more interesting and seeing what types of sound we can get out of an instrument its called experimenting.
Go back to your poor man's rock and leave the good music to us middle class listeners you putz.
