Bill Bruford
Part Two of my in-depth interview with former Yes/King Crimson/Earthworks drummer Bill Bruford is now playing at We Will Rock You

In this segment we discuss the mythos of sex, drugs and rock and roll vs. the working musician's view of the business; back room deal making and influence trading and how that helped launch the career of Yes; payola and how it has evolved into €œindependent record promotion€; personality clashes in bands and whether that conflict is healthy or unhealthy; differences in Yes and how they affected the band; and Robert Fripp.
