{Roundabout} ~ way of Bill Bruford

Drawing of Bill Bruford who celebrated his birth date recently.
Bruford was the drummer for such Progressive Rock outfits like Yes, King Crimson, and Genesis.  He described his playing as "classic amateur style": due to no formal training in music his 'gaping holes' in his knowledge led to a unique and original style thanks to his 'amateurism'.  Too much knowledge a dangerous thing?  In Bruford's estimation, the answer would be: yes!
