Bill Bruford - once known as the godfather of progressive-rock drumming - has been at the top of his profession for four decades, playing with Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, Earthworks, and many more.
His autobiography is an honest, entertaining, brilliantly written account of life on the road and in the studio, rubbing shoulders with everyone from Phil Collins to Allan Holdsworth and creating an impressive tally of great music.
Whether you are a starry-eyed beginner, an inquisitive fan, or a seasoned professional, you'll be intrigued as Bill lifts the veil on life for the professional touring musician. Bill Bruford: The Autobiography will surprise those who think they know him. A rock musician with the temperament of a classical musician who became a jazz musician, Bruford defies all the cliches about what drummers do, largely because he has always been out there redefining the role.
From time to time, someone will ask Bill what he does. He replies that he is a musician. "Yes," comes the retort, "but what do you really do." This unusual, funny, and insightful autobiography answers that question and many others.
