From Robert Fripp's Diary, the 11 December 2003 entry concludes with:

The Happy Gigsters' Guide To Live Performance has this comment: It's not worth much if you can't take it onstage.

Probably something about the font and the italics, but I misread that final line as "It's not worth much if you can't fake it onstage." Which causes a snort of mirth, considering that Fripp's insistence upon Courting The Muse rather than Playing The Rock Star Entertainer is a root disconnect between King Crimson's Fanatic Fanbase and the bespectacled object of its adulation...
