xx I met Bill Bruford
« Thread started on: May 10th, 2012, 5:15pm »

Last October in Kansas City a local music store "Explorer's Percussion" hosted an evening with Bill Bruford. He started off by talking about his career and he had a few video clips from his early days as well as the "Cinema Show" with Phil from the Genesis in Concert '76 film.

He spoke about the music industry, more specifically how when he started it was "the music business", and it transformed into an industy. Which also lead to him challenging drummers to really bring it when it comes to playing because basically anyone can throw a drum track together on a PC now, and we as drummers are responsible for bringing the unique things that can't be programmed.

He also talked about technique a little bit but not too much. He took questions and signed autographs. He was very classy and humorous. He signed a copy of Fragile and the 2007 remaster of Seconds Out, he commented on how nice the packaging was.

One thing he did say about Genesis that I thought was hilarious... he said when he was touring with Genesis he felt that at anytime he could just walk off stage and everyone else would just keep playing and not notice him gone. laugh

Great stuff smiley
I had the pleasure of meeting Bill at a Drummer convention a few years ago after he did a demonstration. He was playing that set up with four toms,two either side of the snare,all set at the same level,with the remote hi-hat centrally positioned on the bass drum. Such a great looking kit set up that,ive never had an opportunity to play a kit in that configuration.
