Bill Bruford

Bill Bruford is the Progressive Rock Keystone. If he were removed from history, Prog Rock would cease to exist, and music critics would have nothing to really complain about. He played for Genesis after having lost a bet with Tony Banks over whether Tony could eat 100 jelly donuts in under one minute, while on stage. Asked about his tenure with the band, Bruford commented that "It was the only band that I agreed to play in where I played in 4/4 time but still had to stay at a pretty crappy hotel."
