Bill Bruford
Bill Bruford, the Godfather of progressive rock drumming, has produced a short video (below) about the origins and aims of his Autobiography, the book everyone's talking about.

It's a memoir of life at the heart of progressive rock and electric and acoustic jazz. It's an honest, entertaining, and brilliantly-written account of Bill's 40 years on the road and in the studio. 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 musician.

A rock musician with the temperament of a classical musician who became a jazz musician, Bill defies all the cliches about what drummers do, largely because he has always been out there redefining the role.

“Not just for drummers..." —Neil Peart

“Frequently hilarious." —Rolling Stone
