In August 1972 Bruford left Yes for King Crimson, where he increasingly became fascinated with the application of Simmons electronic drums. ~ Rick Clark British drummer influenced by Art Blakey and Max Roach; he developed that style into a powerful personal expression. A great experimenter with extensions of rock and jazz, using electronics as an enhancement, not as a slave-device. He also uses African polyrhythms frequently. Played with the bands Yes and King Crimson; now leads his own ensemble, Earthworks. ~ Michael G.
