Robert Fripp Inspired Gavin Harrison's New Solo Album
He recently revealed how the concept came about after a 2009 tribute event for late drummer Buddy Rich. Now Harrison tells the Kscope Podcast: "If I've learned anything from Robert Fripp, it's that you need a good big idea."
The drummer, along with arranger Laurence Cottle, came up with the concept of adding to their chosen tracks with material from other Porcupine Tree material.
"It's good practice, especially when you have a great arranger, to bring in themes from other songs," Harrison says. "I had a whole list of really good riffs in other songs that we could steal. Laurence could work in any riff from any other song, in any other key in any other time signature, into any song we were working on." Read more here.
