Prog Magazine Issue 130 (June 2022) Bruford
NOTE: Prog no longer comes with a free CD (there is a streamable sampler available online). It does come with two Bill Bruford artcards.
Bill Bruford's the only musician who can lay claim to performing with three of the biggest prog bands ever: Yes, King Crimson (three times!) and Genesis. And then of course, there's Gong, U.K. and Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe. And his own band Bruford and Earthworks, as well as his collaborations with former Yes keyboard player Patrick Moraz and Dutch pianist Michiel Borstlap, to name but a few.
Bill discusses all of this, revealing how he was booted out of King Crimson three times, admits to misbehaving in Genesis, and says he's never heard Yes' Tales From Topographic Oceans and much much more.
