Gordon Haskell (born 27 April 1946, in Verwood, England) is a pop, rock and blues music vocalist, songwriter, and bassist. He first gained recognition as a member of the British band Les Fleur de Lys. He sang on one of the songs of King Crimson's second album, then played bass and sang on their third album. After departing from King Crimson, he continued his musical career as a solo musician and gained international recognition in 2001 with his hit song How Wonderful You Are. A school friend of King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp, the two first worked together in an amateur version of Fripp's group the League of Gentlemen in the mid-1960s. Since that time Gordon Haskell has been on the fringes of the English music scene. For a brief period he shared a London flat with Jimi Hendrix. While playing bass in the psychedelic pop band the Fleur De Lys he recorded a few singles with the group to minimal success. Haskell's debut solo album Sail in My Boat was recorded for the U.K. division of CBS Records in 1969. The album did not chart and today remains a rare collectible.
