If he didn't follow Bill Bruford into Yes I expect he'd have a much bigger rep.
Same thing happened with Pat Mastelotto when he came into Crimson. Like Alan White, he's a fantastic drummer but he doesn't get talked about much. If either of those guys became known as the original drummer in a name band they'd probably be revered like Neal and Gavin.
Bruford is a helluva act to follow!
