Default Happy Birthday Mr. er, Dr. Bruford

Bill Bruford, PhD. turns 68 today!

Dr. Bruford's doctoral dissertation is available for download if you're interested:
epubs.surrey.ac.uk/810288/1/Bruford Thesis. Version of Record.pdf

It is called "Making it Work: Creative music performance and the Western kit drummer"

A note at DGM indicates that more "reader friendly" (i.e., less academic) version in book form will be released by Bill in 2018.
"Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear..."

Indeed, happy "B" day!

His thesis is a scholarly read and slightly less humorously bitchy than his autobiography.

Miss him performing, though....
