From his days with King Crimson and the Talking Heads to his distinguished solo career, Adrian Belew is the go-to man when it comes experimental guitar. Artists as diverse as David Bowie, Paul Simon, and Trent Reznor have called on the guitarist, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist to lend his distinct touch to their own records. Belew combines pure pop with the avant-garde, which makes him the logical choice for the so-called “art rockers” he has long been associated with. As a solo artist, he has endured since his early 1980s debut. The secret to his longevity is that he is one of a kind.
