Default Re: Bill Bruford

Christ I don't believe I missed this thread. Mr Bruford is a fantastic drummer, who can play in anything. For instance, the King Crimson of 75 (on 'Red') and the King Crimson of 81 (with Tony Levin and Adrian Belew on 'Discipline') are two very, very different beasts. One, dark progressive rock, the other, more of an electronica project (both excellent). I don't think there's another drummer who would have been able to play with Fripp and co. for so long and continually be able to push the envelope as he does.

Then he goes and forms Earthworks, just to really prove what a fantastic drummer he is in all genres. Earthworks are still pushing the envelope with Bruford. It's fantastic.

But I had to agree, one of the best drum performances from him was 'Heart of the Sunrise'. Just brilliant.
