Descriptions du produit

Bill Bruford Bill Bruford, once called the godfather of progressive-rock drumming, has been at the top of his profession for four decades. This is his memoir of life at the heart of prog rock, art rock, and modern jazz, playing with Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, Earthworks and many more. It is an honest and entertaining account of life on the road and in the studio, rubbing shoulders with the famous, the less famous, and the infamous, and creating an impressive tally of great music. A rock musician with the temperament of a classical musician who became a jazz musician, Bruford defies all the cliches about drummers. He says: "You write what you have to write, you play what...

Bruford's autobiog is a mixture of recollection and thinking-out-loud, both on the music industry and music/artistic creation in general.

It details his life and career (though mostly the latter, there is not much personal gush) in more or less chronological order, in that he starts off young and ends up retired, but as a narrator flits back and forth in time, so that a section on Yes in 1972 may be followed immediately by a reflection on something similar that happened in the 80s or 90s, before getting back to the original story.

I found it interesting and informative, though it is perhaps less autobiography than semi-scholarly work on the "state of music", with all the references to academic and critical writings.

Nonetheless, it was good to find out in between just how he got that cymbal sound on One More Red Nightmare!

HASH(0x94088e70) étoiles sur 5 Must read for the Yes or King Crimson fan! 25 janvier 2015
Par Steven N. Gosney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Bill Bruford has always been my favorite, so I was excited to read his story. It is way more than I could have asked for. His writing style really lets you get to know his inner thoughts, and he tells you each story in a detailed, quirky and sometimes side splitting way. On of my favorite antidotes is his story about a found-in-the-trash cymbal that he fell in love with and played to death on 'Red' -- a true musician's story. Another funny story (at least when told from perspective) is the mega-bucks electronic drum kit that fails just before his drum solo in Madison Square Garden. He explains the whys of leaving Yes and retiring the music business in depth. A musician could also benefit from his honesty and insight into the economics of the music biz. Some of his financial mistakes are examined with his characteristic English humor. I liked this book so much that I am re-reading it. All I can say is thank you to Bill for simply the best rock autobiography I have ever read.

HASH(0x9430e270) étoiles sur 5 is the absolute best I have read 11 novembre 2014
Par Matthew Baker - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have read close to 25 rock biographies in the past year and this, by far, is the absolute best I have read. Admittedly, I am a Bill Bruford fan but the writing style and level of attention Bill gives to his life story is purely engaging. Instead of opting for the usual haphazard and often profane meat and potatoes approach other contemporaries opted for in their bios, Bruford takes a strongly analytical, measured and, frankly, completely refreshing approach to his 40+ years as one of rock's premier prog drummers. From Yes's frenetic gig-hopping early years that led to the seminal "Fragile" to the even more painstaking world of Robert Fripp and the 3rd incarnation of King Crimson that built up and then disbanded within 3 short years, Bill lets us look inside the thoughts feelings and rationale of how things worked and exactly what he thought of it all. Unique in humor (it is often humorous and downright hysterical---see his description of the arduous world of the interviewed touring musician and the the ubiquitous Mellotron). Anything you wanted to know and more about the man, his love for jazz and his philopshies and thoughts are here for all to enjoy. A must read!!

HASH(0x941e9c60) étoiles sur 5 Lots of funny moments, the dark side of the music business 2 septembre 2015
Par Motorcycle Rider - Publié sur Amazon.com

Bill Bruford gives an insight and accounting of his career as a progressive rock/jazz drummer all the way up to his time with his own band Earthworks. Lots of funny moments, the dark side of the music business, the equipment trials and tribulations, the grind of touring, and how his insecurity as an accomplished musician seems to hang over him all the time. He doesn't mince words about people and his likes and dislikes. One will be surprised to learn these things from a reserved Englishman who sat behind the drums of some of the top bands of our time. The book is written from the heart as he sums it up that he was very fortunate to have made music that people still listen to and he was lucky to work for 40 years as a professional performing musician.

HASH(0x9430e474) étoiles sur 5 all totally avoided in this great book! Highly recommended especially for musicians 9 juillet 2015
Par R. McElroy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Sex, drugs, and rock and roll...all totally avoided in this great book! Highly recommended especially for musicians; his insights into his own experiences coupled with extensive research on what it means to be musical/creative are profound. On my second read and loving it.

HASH(0x93f385c4) étoiles sur 5 BRUFORD: AS ELOQUENT ON THE PAGE AS ON THE DRUMS! 19 décembre 2014
Par conlon keator - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
IF YOU LIKE BILL BRUFORD THIS IS A GREAT READ! BILL IS AS ELEGANT A WRITER AS HE IS A MUSICIAN. THIS IS A TRUE AUTOBIOGRAPHY, NOT 'GHOST WRITTEN' BY SOMEONE ELSE. IT IS NOT 'AS TOLD TO' BUT BILL IN HIS OWN WORDS. ALL THE CHARM, WISDOM, HUMOR, INTELLIGENCE, AND HONESTY THAT IS BILL BRUFORD PERMEATES EVERY PARAGRAPH.

THERE ARE OF COURSE, INTERESTING ANECDOTES ABOUT THE VARIOUS GROUPS IN WHICH BILL HAS BEEN A MEMBER, BUT THIS MUCH MUCH MORE. BILL DISCUSSES THE MUSIC BUSINESS WITH THE EYE OF A VIVISECTIONIST. HE RELATES THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF BEING ON THE ROAD, THE FRUSTRATIONS OF 'FRONTING' YOUR OWN BAND, AND THE STRESS PUT UPON RELATIONSHIPS THAT A WORKING MUSICIAN MUST FACE.

THIS IS MORE A TALE OF WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE A CREATIVE ARTIST BENT UPON BEING A PROFESSIONAL IN YOUR FIELD WHO WILL MAKE REAL HEADWAY WITHIN YOUR CRAFT. THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW BILL'S WORK ALREADY KNOW THAT HE IS ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE, CREATIVE, AND INNOVATIVE DRUMMER / PERCUSSIONIST / ELECTRONIC PERCUSSION PLAYER / COMPOSER / PERFORMERS WHO EVER PUT STICKS TO DRUMS.

IN THIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY BILL REALIZES HIS PLACE IN 'DRUM HISTORY' YET IS PAINFULLY REFLECTIVE ABOUT HIS CAREER. THIS BOOK BEST DESCRIBES WHY HE HAS DECIDED TO 'RETIRE' FROM PLAYING. IT IS A BRILLIANT PIECE OF WRITING AND IF BILL WANTED A CAREER AS SUCH I FEEL CERTAIN THAT HE WOULD WAX AS ELOQUENTLY UPON THE PAGE AS HE DID UPON 'THE SKINS'.
