* CreatorBacklash: Averted somewhat. The group will still play older tracks (Red, Larks' Tongues in Aspic Pt. 2, and some of the 1980's repertoire are still used in the recent lineups), but Robert (and probably the group) are sick and tired of [[FanDumb the fans who only want to hear the old stuff]], [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks and completely ignore the group's new repertoire]]. Promoters who bank on the group's prog rock history to sell seats don't help either.
* DoingItForTheArt
* HeyItsThatGuy [=/=] HeyItsThatVoice: King Crimson borrowed members from or to a number of other prog bands with its various lineup changes, but John Wetton is probably the most prolific outside the band (he was also the lead singer for Asia and UK, just to name a couple.)
** Fripp lent his guitar services to other groups on occasions, including:
*** VanDerGraafGenerator - "The Emperor In His War Room"
*** BrianEno - "Baby's On Fire", "Driving Me Backwards", "Blank Frank", "St. Elmo's Fire", "I'll Come Running", "Golden Hours", "King's Lead Hat"
*** DavidBowie - ''"Heroes"'' and a good chunk of ''Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)''
*** {{Blondie}} - "Fade Away And Radiate"
*** Music/TalkingHeads - "I Zimbra"
** Jon Anderson from {{Yes}} makes a guest appearance on the "Prince Rupert Awakes" section of the title piece from ''Lizard''.
* NamesTheSame: No, David Cross is not the one who played Tobias Funke in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''.
* RetroactiveRecognition: [[EmersonLakeAndPalmer Greg Lake]] and [[Music/{{Foreigner}} Ian MacDonald]] were part of the original lineup.
* ThrowItIn: Gordon Haskell's laughter at the end of "Indoor Games". Also, the spoken part of "Thela Hun Ginjeet" (see SpokenWordInMusic in the Main tab).
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: EltonJohn auditioned for the band during the sessions for ''In The Wake of Poseidon''. Others who auditioned include future RoxyMusic singer Bryan Ferry and Music/{{Yes}} vocalist Jon Anderson. The latter gives us a small taste of what could have happened had he been accepted into the band on the movement "Prince Rupert Awakes" from the song "Lizard", as Haskell had already left the band by the time that section was recorded and Anderson was brought in to record the vocal part.
** During the ''Islands'' era, Fripp toyed with the idea of recording Crimson songs in different styles than originally conceived; e.g "The Court of the Crimson King" as a Chicago Blues number.
