Bill Bruford: From Drummer to Doctorate
On the next Echoes, an interview with Bill Bruford. He was the influential drummer with Yes, King Crimson and UK,. Now he has a doctorate and a book to go with it called Uncharted: Creativity and the Expert Drummer.
Robert Fripp [King Crimson] wasn’t entirely helpful when he said I could do anything I wanted so long as he hadn’t heard it before. So I was in one of the few bands in in the western world that was interested in trying to produce sounds and ways of making music that were quite different to others.
