Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist Flea shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing one of his favorite albums when he was only a teenager, and apparently, it was ‘Discipline’ by King Crimson.
‘Discipline’ is the eighth studio album by King Crimson which was released on September 22, 1981. The album received mixed reviews while critics love the album’s artistry and the band’s approach to guitar playing, they also criticized the album since it has too many ‘experimental’ elements to it.
King Crimson has undergone numerous line-up changes throughout its history. For their ‘Discipline’ album, the band welcomed vocalist Adrian Belew and bassist Tony Levin in addition to the original guitarist Robert Fripp and drummer Bill Bruford.
Flea recently shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing that ‘Discipline’ has been a ‘huge album’ while he was a teenager. In addition to this, Flea opened up about the line-up of the King Crimson they had back then and praised the new members of the band revealing that it was a fantastic line-up for the band.
Here is what Flea said:
“Don’t forget how sweet Belew Vox on discipline. Frame by frame in particular. Huge album for my teenagerness. And Tony Levin destroying, the fantastic lineup for king crimson.”
