Belew who plays guitar for King Crimson says he gets his ideas for his songs walking around the mall and says science-oriented stores like the Discovery Store or Sharper Image provide perfect fodder for his musical ideas.
However, his busy schedule sometimes keeps him away from the malls so he sometimes resorts to watching nature shows on TV and says the animal documentaries help inspire music because nature shows us what humans are really like.
Belew must be getting lots of ideas because he has three new CDs in the works including his latest, Side One, a power trio recording with Primus bassist Les Claypool and Tool drummer Danny Carey.
