    2- Interview – The Reasons Bill Bruford Retired From Drumming
    August 3, 2019 – Bruford retired from performing in January 2009. That's from both stage and studio. We asked him what led him to leave?

    Bill Bruford has just released his new 20 CD/4DVD box set from his former band Earthworks an acoustic/electronic Jazz fusion band which at one point including multi-instrumentalist Django Bates and saxophonist Iain Ballamy. I asked Bill if he learned anything new about himself going through the Earthworks discography?

    This is a 13 part series with Bill Bruford and we will be talking about his time in Yes, Genesis, retirement, much more on Earthworks and drumming challenges. Keep in mind last year we talked to Bruford's replacement in Yes Alan White. We will put links to that collection in the description of this video. - by John Beaudin

    Yes - Yours Is No Disgrace - Live at Beat-Club - 1971 - Remastered

    11:06

    24.04.1971 - Radio Bremen / ARD - Germany

    Audio Remastered by BrunoSamppa, 2017

    According to Edward Macan, Yours Is No Disgrace is generally recognized as Yes' first antiwar song (though Harold Land from their debut album deals with the subject of war). Anderson has stated that the theme of the song was recognition that the kids fighting the war had no choice but to fight and that the war wasn't their fault. Author Bill Martin describes Yours Is No Disgrace as a remarkable and subtle song about the Vietnam War. The lyrics make their point by contrasting the suffering of the soldiers in Vietnam with people partying in Las Vegas. Thompson praises the line On a sailing ship to nowhere as [conjuring] a mental image that the music cannot help but echo. The original words armies gather near (confirmed in every recorded live version) have been misprinted as armies scatter the earth numerous times, suggesting this may have been a mis-transcription in the first published version, as the album cover itself did not include lyrics. However, this does not appear to have impacted the overall anti-war interpretation of the song.

    The song begins with a staccato introduction, which builds tension right away. This is followed by Howe's guitar riffs, which have been described by various critics as both joyous and menacing. Author Dave Simonelli remarks that the jagged but simple related pattern of chords that Howe plays are developed in a manner analogous to a symphony. Village Voice critic Robert Christgau also praises Howe's playing on the song. Howe has stated that his guitar solo on the song is one of his favorites because it was the first time he was able to overdub his parts in that manner. The main musical motif is played on a Moog synthesizer. According to Yes biographer Chris Welch, the vocals by Anderson and Squire exude a sense of optimism as if all past battles are finally over and nothing can now stop the band's musical odyssey.

    Chris Squire has stated that the main riff is an idea based on the theme from the british series Gideons Way

    Bill Bruford was a founding member of Yes through the years 1968-1972, and while with the band recorded five albums, each of which was more successful than its predecessor. When Bill left Yes in 1972 for King Crimson following the release of Close To The Edge, there were those who concluded that he'd taken leave of his senses.

    But it proved an astute musical move. When King Crimson's enigmatic leader Robert Fripp decided to split the band after three tumultuous albums and move on to other projects, Bill moved to playing countless sessions, and was also briefly a member of the bands National Health, Gong and, more famously, Genesis, where he played alongside Phil Collins, who had just stepped up to the microphone following the departure of Peter Gabriel. Bill was the drummer in the live Genesis situation and was with the band for the majority of 1976 while the band toured their album A Trick Of The Tail.

    Following the hugely well received debut CD UK , from the group of the same name, Bill finally felt ready for life as a full time band leader. His own group Bruford went on to record four albums and tour extensively as a quartet with guitarist Allan Holdsworth, particularly in the US., but the full group, featuring Annette Peacock on vocals, only ever played two shows, both for UK national TV, and this DVD is one of those shows.

    Filmed in 1979 at Oxford Polytechnic in the UK, the concert features the full group playing material from the band's first two CDs, Feels Good To Me, and One of a Kind, and includes the stand-out track Beelzebub and the show-stopping Adios a La Pasada. The packaging includes a 12-page booklet archiving critical reaction at the time. All members of this group have gone on to distinguished careers in their own right, and together with the scarcity value of the band's performances, this DVD will be much anticipated by Bill Bruford's extensive fan base.

    Yes Close To The Edge by Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe Live in CA

    18:49

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced on December 20, 2016 that Yes would finally be inducted at April 7, 2017 ceremony. It's about time!

    Full Frame 4x3 aspect ratio and video enhanced ABWH concert performance of Close To The Edge features Rock Hall fellow Yes inductees Jon Anderson on vocals, Bill Bruford on drums, Rick Wakeman on keyboards and Steve Howe on guitars. Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe were live at Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA on September 9, 1989. Written by Anderson/Howe, the Yes title track was originally recorded on entire side one of album Close To The Edge in 1972. Close to the Edge four parts are:
    I. The Solid Time of Change
    II. Total Mass Retain
    III. I Get Up, I Get Down (08:06)
    IV. Seasons of Man (14:17). Yes, Close To The Edge (1972) is #5 on Rolling Stone 50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time.

    The progressive rock band joins classic rockers Electric Light Orchestra and Journey plus ’60s folk singer Joan Baez, grungers Pearl Jam and the late rapper Tupac Shakur to fill out the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class.

    The members of YES who will officially be inducted into the Rock Hall are the ‘UNION‘ tour line-up: current members Alan White and Steve Howe, Yes band’s late bassist and founding member Chris Squire, and former members Jon Anderson (vocals), Bill Bruford (drums), Tony Kaye (keyboards), Rick Wakeman (keyboards) and Trevor Rabin (guitar).

    In addition to Steve Howe and Alan White, YES’ current line-up includes Geoff Downes (keyboards; first joined in 1980), Jon Davison (vocals since 2011) and Billy Sherwood (guitar/keyboards in the 1990s and Chris Squire’s choice to take over bass/vocals in 2015).

    Billboard update April 7, 2017: Yes Jams With Rush's Geddy Lee. After Geddy Lee helped right a wrong by inducting Yes into the 32nd Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Rush bassist joined his prog-rock heroes onstage for a crushingly loud run-through of Roundabout. Speaking to Billboard backstage about it, Lee said, I just wanted to make sure I didn't fuck it up. They are without question my favorite band. He did, however, point out it was bittersweet to take over for late Yes bassist Chris Squire, who passed away in 2015 and didn't live to see his band recognized. He did Squire justice, though: Lee and Yes (with Jon Anderson back on vocals for the first time since 2004) rocked with more precision than any other performer that night.
    ---
    RollingStone.com review April 8, 2017: Yes fans have spent years wondering what would happen when the group performed at the Hall of Fame given so many redundant members and years of bad blood. It turned out to be less complicated than one might think. Original drummer Bill Bruford refused to come out of retirement for the evening, though he did make it to the show. That meant Alan White was the sole drummer, and Kaye's absence allowed Wakeman to handle all the keyboard parts. On Roundabout, Geddy Lee played bass, while Steve Howe and Trevor Rabin played guitar. For Owner of a Lonely Heart, Howe gamely took over on bass despite not being in the group when it was recorded. It was a wonderful sight for long-suffering Yes fans that have spent years seeing partial lineups and hopefully paves the way for a reunion tour (though the death of bassist Chris Squire in 2015 makes any complete reformation impossible).

    10:20

    From the album Gradually Going Tornado (E.G. Records, 1980).

Dave Stewart played keyboards with them, just prior to joining Bruford. Bill was briefly in National Health as well (ca. 1975-1976), and can be heard on Missing Pieces - a collection of early rarities. Credits for Land's End: Guitar: John Clark / Keyboards: Dave Stewart / Bass: Jeff Berlin / Drums: Bill Bruford. Recorded at Surrey Sound Studio. Produced by Bill Bruford and Ron Malo.

    Well, they keep referring to them as Yes, but it's actually Bill Bruford and Steve Howe promoting The Symphonic Music Of Yes album. I suppose it would be to hard to explain that Bill and Steve were currently NOT in Yes.

    Interview Clip #8- Was Bill Bruford Ever Asked Back Into Yes After 1992?
    September 14, 2019 – Bill Bruford left Yes after five albums in the early '70s but he did come back for the big Yes reunion in 1990 when they recorded the “Union” album. I asked him if he's been asked back since the early '90s.

    Keep in mind last year we talked to Bruford's replacement in Yes Alan White. We will put links to that collection in the description of this video. - by John Beaudin

    187: Bill Bruford

    1:8:36

    Bill Bruford’s instantly identifiable sound and brilliant sense of composition made him the defining drummer of the progressive rock movement; but at age 60, after four decades in the music business, Bill unceremoniously walked away.

    Bill tells Joe about: being a young jazz elitist; leveraging himself sideways from an upper-middle class family to the seedy life of a musician; doing a lot with “a modest amount of talent”; the creative dynamics of Yes and King Crimson; how he achieved his signature snare sound; retirement; and earning a doctorate from The University of Surrey. During the course of the conversation, Joe and Bill also christen a new band, Wongford. This is a can’t-miss episode with one of the all-time greats.

    Bill Bruford Says Early Touring Days With Yes Almost Killed Him

    Interview Clip #5- Bill Bruford Says Touring With Yes Almost Killed Him
    August 24, 2019 – Yes was formed in 1968 and Bill Bruford was there for their first five albums. He left after “Close to the Edge” from 1972. Bruford says the early days were tough because they were a little nuts. They drove in the middle of the night a lot, no hotels, running red lights, drinking too much. I told him I'm surprised you made it out alive?

    A bearded Phil Collins sings and joins Bill Bruford on drums. Great song, and great performance!

    UPDATE: The 2007 re-issue of A Trick of the Tail includes this concert on a bonus DVD with great audio quality. The image hasn't been remastered, though. I hope some day they will release this in high definition!
