Bill Bruford's Yard Sale

Earlier this year, Bill Bruford contacted Graham regarding selling a large amount of kit that he'd built up during his career. Since that time we have been working towards cataloguing and photographing all the equipment ready to auction to give everyone the chance of owning these incredibly rare pieces of musical history.

All of these items will all be sold by auction on eBay. 

The auctions will commence from midday on Wednesday 14th October and will be rolled out over the following 36 hours to ensure that no 2 lots finish at exactly the same time.

Bill Bruford is an English retired drummer, composer, producer, record label owner and musicologist who first gained prominence as a founding member of the progressive rock band Yes. After his departure from Yes, Bruford spent the rest of the 1970s playing in King Crimson (1972-1974) and touring with Genesis (1976) and U.K. (1978). Eventually he formed his own group, Bruford, which was active from 1978-1980.

In the 1980s, Bruford returned to King Crimson for three years, collaborated with several artists, including Patrick Moraz and David Torn, and formed his own jazz band Earthworks in 1986. He then played with his former Yes bandmates in Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, which eventually led to a very brief second stint in Yes. Bruford played in King Crimson for his third (and final) tenure from 1994-1997, after which he continued with a new configuration of Earthworks.

On 1 January 2009, Bruford retired from public performance. He released his autobiography, and continues to speak and write about music. He operates his record labels, Summerfold and Winterfold Records. In 2016, after four-and-a-half years of study, Bruford earned a PhD in Music at the University of Surrey, in the same year Rolling Stone magazine ranked Bruford No. 16 in its list of the 100 Greatest Drummers of All Time.
