Nice, guys.

Doug, was the 72 gig already with White? Anyone seen Yes with Bruford?

Yeah, it was White. I missed Bruford by 3 months. (I did, however, catch him with Genesis 1976, U.K. 1978, and also King Crimson 1984)

I've never seen Yes or King Crimson with or without Bill Bruford but I did pick up Robert Fripp hitchhiking through the Nevada desert one time.

Well, I didn't know who he was when I picked him up as he was just this disheveled old guy. Apparently he had been riding his motorcycle in the desert and wrecked it. Anyway, I pick him up to give him a ride into Vegas. He was a little reserved and grumpy at first but I eventually got him to join in on some sing-alongs to help while away the time. When we got into Vegas he had me drop him off at the Sands. That's when he told me who he was. I haven't seen him since but I hear he may be including me in his will.

Fantastic story! Especially the last part. :wink:

Btw, when did this happen?!

DB - my memory's a little hazy on the exact date but I distinctly remember that Howard Hughes was still alive at the time so it had to be no later than 1976 (probably much earlier).

I guess it is out of character to expect RF to be motorcycling in a desert in the US, besides he would not be old back then...

Dude, just do what I did: Go to Setlist.com, pick a bunch of random dates over several years, and list them! No one will ever know!

You'll feel better, I promise.

Like I told that guy at Woodstock and Monterey Pop - my honesty is the core of who I am. Charlie Parker taught me that at Birdland.

But anyway, I'll miss this one too. The closest they perform to me is St Louis.

I saw Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe at a baseball park under a full looking moon in a New England beach town sometime around 1989. They played Close To The Edge which was cool. And You And I was also played which has some impressive instrumental sections. When JA sings I don't like it so much. It's not just the lyrics it's the register.

Saw the 90125 (or whatever) tour when I was real young. No Bruford. it was Alan White. Tony Kaye on keys, I think. I remember Changes had a great intro. The verses were not bad either. The best part was the Bugs Bunny cartoon that opened the show. Chris Squire dressed the most ridiculously that night. Some sort of cape.

Next time you see Fripp hitchhiking my suggestion is to pick him up and tell him you used to work as an executive for EG Records.

The problem with Bruford from ABWH and Union is the Simmons eletcronic drums...

The band Bruford, circa 1980-81. Unfortunately not with Allan Holdsworth, but with "The Unknown John Clarke" on guitar, Dave Stewart, and Jeff Berlin. I can't remember the venue, but it was a small club. Seated at the foot of the stage. Jeff Berlin was wearing a Roberto Duran t-shirt.

Bruford and Moraz, circa 1983, the same venue as above, again seated at the foot of the stage.

ABWH 1989, Yes twice on the Union tour, 1991.

8 times with King Crimson, 3-Discipline tour, 2-Beat tour, 1-TOAPP tour, 1-Thrak, 1-post-Thrak, but pre-Construkction of Light.

I saw the TOAPP show at the pier in NYC , and I saw Frank there about 2 months later. What a summer that was!

Anyone see Bruford with KC pre-Discipline?

I was having a rough time in summer '77 and missed that tour, however, I have a boot from Boston Garden from 8 days before that (8/12/77) which is one of my favorite Yes recordings.

8/29/80, the Drama tour. Nice!
