Bruford’s musical activities list between late 1974 and 1976 is an interesting one, and even though it was mostly necessitated by practical needs of making an income, it traversed through the many facets of progressive music in the mid 1970s. His first musical activity after Crimson went kaput was a two month stint with Gong at the end of 1974. 1975 was a very busy year for Bill Bruford, with different activities almost every month of the year. In January and February he played in sessions for a couple of tracks for Steve Howe’s first solo album Beginnings, including Break Away From It All, a fine track featuring only the guitarist and drummer. Later in February Roy Harper formed Trigger with Chris Spedding on lead guitar, Dave Cochran on bass and Bill Bruford on drums and they recorded Harper’s excellent album HQ.
once told Modern Drummer magazine, I guess I’m not really a Modern Drummer drummer. But the unshowy contribution he made to the band he played in is worth more than a pile of dusty VHS drum-instruction tapes (not that we couldn’t watch that YouTube video where Jeff Porcaro explains how he came up with the Rosanna groove until our eyeballs turn to ash). Cobham's influence stretched far beyond jazz: Prog contemporaries Bill Bruford of King Crimson listened closely to what he was up to, younger drummers like Danny Carey of Tool learned from him, and even Prince plays a version of Cobham's "Stratus" in concert. There's maybe no bigger fan than Phil Collins, who has named Mahavishnu's Inner Mounting Flame as a key influence on his early style.
