KING-CRIMSON-MITBEGRÜNDER IAN MCDONALD WIRD 75
- Jun 30, 2021
In 1968, Ian McDonald was one of the founding members of the style-defining Progressive Rock band King Crimson, and in 1969 he played a major role in determining their sound on the debut IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING. He left the band that same year, but was heard again on RED in 1974. In 1976, he was part of the founding lineup of Foreigner, with whom he remained until 1980. McDonald played guitar, keyboards and saxophone on the first three Foreigner records. The multi-instrumentalist was featured on albums by Steve Hackett and John Wetton before forming the 21st Century Schizoid Band in 2002 with old King Crimson collaborators and touring early material by the Progressive Rock pioneers. Ian McDonald turns 75 on June 25.
