When the League of Gentlemen played East Lansing, Fripp went outside to
inspect the line waiting to get in, to make sure no one was carrying
recording equipment.  He spotted one guy carrying a philosophy text and
started a conversation with the guy because he (Fripp) was very fond of
that text.  The poor guy was sweating bullets for fear that Fripp would
grab the text and turn to a particular page to quote a particular
passage: he'd hollowed the book out to provide a hiding place for his
tape deck.
