Happy Birthday Mr. er, Dr. Bruford

Bill Bruford, PhD. turns 68 today!

Dr. Bruford's doctoral dissertation is available for download if you're interested:
epubs.surrey.ac.uk/810288/1/Bruford Thesis. Version of Record.pdf

It is called "Making it Work: Creative music performance and the Western kit drummer"

A note at DGM indicates that more "reader friendly" (i.e., less academic) version in book form will be released by Bill in 2018.

Indeed, happy "B" day!

His thesis is a scholarly read and slightly less humorously bitchy than his autobiography.

Miss him performing, though....
