Bill Bruford — British Musician born on May 17, 1949,

William Scott "Bill" Bruford is an English drummer, percussionist, composer, producer, and record label owner. He was the original drummer for the progressive rock group Yes, from 1968–1972. Bruford has performed for numerous popular acts since the early 1970s, including a stint as touring drummer for Genesis in 1976 and U.K. in 1978. Following his departure from Yes and at various times until 1997, Bruford was the drummer for progressive rock band King Crimson. Then, Bruford moved away from progressive rock to concentrate on jazz in 1987, leading his own jazz group, Earthworks, for several years. He was inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1990. He retired from public performance in 2009, but continues to run his two record labels and to speak and write about music. His autobiography, Bill Bruford: The Autobiography, was published in early 2009... (wikipedia)

I seldom play in a trio, but acoustic music is likely to be lighter, quicker, and quieter.
So I have the classic amateur's technique; I know some very tricky bits and I have large gaping holes.
I don't really remember a whole lot of sex, drugs and rock n' roll, really.
And I like messing around in the engine room of music. Seeing what happens in the rhythm section area.
I listen to Bill Stewart play the drums and when I have finished doing that, I listen to Bill Stewart.
