Notes: ...a super-group called UK formed, composed of four men with solid progressive rock and jazz credentials. The most famous at the time was percussionist Bill Bruford, who achieved stardom with Yes, and then went on to join what many believe was the best King Crimson line-up ever. After Crimson flew apart, he even toured with Genesis, furthering his standing in progressive circles. Bassist/Lead Singer John Wetton was Bruford’s band mate in King Crimson. He also played with Roxy Music and with lesser known groups like Family. UK actually rose from the ashes of an aborted attempt by Bruford and Wetton to form a keyboard based trio with Rick Wakeman. When that effort failed, Bruford and Wetton agreed to form a new band with each of them inviting another member of their choice onboard. Wetton invited keyboardist and fellow ex-Roxy Music band mate Eddie Jobson, who also played with Curved Air. Guitarist Allan Holdsworth was the Bruford invitee. He came from a jazz background, playing with Jean-Luc Ponty, Soft Machine and Pierre Moerlen’s Gong. This unlikely combination of musicians released their now legendary eponymous debut album in April 1978 and immediately mounted an extensive tour to support it. In September of that year, their long and winding road ran through New Orleans. (taken from PRRP Staff's original nfo)
