Bassist Tony Levin and drummer Pat Mastelotto may best be known as the heart and soul of the critically acclaimed group King Crimson. This new aggregation will perform not only a host of King Crimson tunes, but selections from their new album as well.
Tony was a Classical bassist in his youth (performing for John Kennedy at the White House in 1960) and then a jazz player, playing with Gary Burton, Larry Coryell, Chuck Mangione and others.
He found himself most at home in a rock setting, though, and from the mid 70's, having done many studio recordings, he left the NY studio scene to play live rock.
Peter Gabriel and King Crimson found him to be the right player for them, and to this day he is a touring and recording member of those bands.
Some notable other artists Tony has recorded with are John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Ringo, Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Paul Simon and Steven Wilson.
Tony has released 5 solo albums, on his own Papabear Records, and on other labels. He has three books released, Beyond the Bass Clef , and photo books Road Photos, and Crimson Chronicles.
His website has a complete discography, in addition to diaries and photos from dozens of tours. It is one of the longest running web blogs featuring rock touring, and has had millions of visitors.
