Re: What are you listening to when you log in here?

Right now I'm listening to a repeat of the fabulous Steve Howe special on Planet Rock. So far, Steve (a unique DJ to say the least) has played a Les Paul & Mary Ford tune, then "Eight Miles High" by The Byrds, a Dylan tune from "Blonde on Blonde", and finally "Heart Of The Sunrise" from Fragile. As ...

Re: "YES" Tour this summer with School of Rock Kids

YesWorld reports a tour this year - and that's about all. No other content exists at this time. According to MT, they're redesigning the site to suit the re-emergence of Yes after their long hiatus. YesWorld identifies Oliver Wakeman as the keyboard player, along with Jon, Steve, Chris, and Alan. Th...

<img src=pix/icon_yes_talis.gif border=0 align=middle> It's very sad indeed that Jon would even entertain the possibility that Yes will "never release another studio album." That kind of mentality derives from the "Music Business" not giving a shit about some of its most influential artists. Did yo...
