I just saw that he died on February 9th died at 75.After reading about him, I am guessing the we never saw a version of King Crimson with him in it. However, we probably saw him with Foreigner. Hey it was the 70's!www.theguardian.comIan McDonald: King Crimson and Foreigner co-founder dies age 75Between his two best known bands, the multi-instrumentalist appeared on four of the biggest-selling albums of the period 1969-79
He had a knack for contributing to big pop hits like that string of Foreigner albums and 'Get It On (Bang A Gong)' by T-Rex and the always amazing 'The Court Of The Crimson King' by King Crimson.
Haven't heard that McDonald & Giles eponymous in a while . . .
I like this detail from the Ian McDonald Wikipedia entry . . .
A trailer for a King Crimson documentary was released a week before his death, where McDonald apologised to Fripp for leaving the band in 1969
