William Scott "Bill" Bruford (born 17 May 1949) 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. Following his departure from Yes and at various times until 1997, Bruford was the drummer for progressive rock band King Crimson. 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.〔(【引用サイトリンク】 title= Modern Drummer’s Readers Poll Archive, 1979–2014 )〕 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.
Bruford was born on 17 May 1949 in Sevenoaks, Kent. He is the third child of Betty and John Bruford, a veterinary surgeon. He attended Tonbridge School.
Bruford wished to take up drumming after watching American jazz drummers of the 1960s on BBC television. He cites Max Roach, Joe Morello, Art Blakey, and Ginger Baker as his favourite drummers as a youngster. His sister gave him a pair of brushes as a present.〔 He later took a few lessons from Lou Pocock, a member of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.〔
