I agree. Fripp probably exposed more guitarists to looping (kudos to Eno as well) than anybody. He may not be the best the looping world has had to offer, but he certainly has had an impact. And yes, one must respect him for sticking to his guns for his entire career.

Why splutter? Whether you like his music or not, Fripp's a big part of
the looping world. The end. In my opinion, he's one of the only of his
kind that hasn't gone all soft. He's a nice cranky OCD guitarist, and I
still listen to King Crimson all the time. God Save The Queen was
probably one of my first introductions to any looping.
He claims to have never gotten a dime, or even a working EH16 even
though they marketed it as a "Fripp in the box."
