We celebrate the epic career of Bill Bruford on the cover of the new issue of Prog Magazine, which is on sale now...

Bill Bruford's the only musician who can lay claim to performing with three of the biggest prog bands ever: Yes, King Crimson (three times!) and Genesis. And then of course, there's Gong, U.K. and Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe. And his own band Bruford and Earthworks, as well as his collaborations with former Yes keyboard player Patrick Moraz and Dutch pianist Michiel Borstlap, to name but a few.

Bill discusses all of this, revealing how he was booted out of King Crimson three times, admits to misbehaving in Genesis, and says he's never heard Yes' Tales From Topographic Oceans and much much more.
