But I can't really fault Fripp's logic in pointing out that it's pretty hypocritical for Belew to play earlier KC material when he was in the band, and play Fripp's guitar lines at his own shows, and then throw his toys out the pram when the same is done to him.
The money business does make it sound like he was just being a greedy jerk, hard to sympathise there. Interesting also that Fripp seems to be saying that Belew quit the band rather than getting fired.
Fripp's always consistent and fair by his own weird set of personal values, so I find it hard to call him a bastard exactly. There's something vaguely autistic or sociopathic about his compete lack of empathy for anyone who doesn't share those values though.
