Our top 10 Robert Fripp songs list takes a look at the solo material that Robert Fripp recorded in between all his great recordings with King Crimson, Brian Eno, David Bowie and the hundreds of other rock and roll acts that Robert Fripp has collaborated with in “one way or another.” Robert Fripp has been regarded as one of the most influential guitar players in rock and roll history. Robert Fripp’s musical skills and originality has made him one of the most sought after musicians in the business. His work alone as a founding member of King Crimson should grant him Rock and Roll Hall of Fame status. However, Robert Fripp never stopped working. Rock historians have written that Robert Fripp has performed on, or worked on, at least one thousand albums in his career.

With some much music to look at, we decided to just present music from Robert Fripp’s solo albums. When compared to his output with King Crimson and other collaborations, Robert Fripp released just a small amount of solo records. Below is a list of some of our favorite Robert Fripp songs.
