Nah, good question. For extra credit - without peeking - who is credited with playing piano on the same track?

Chris Squire plays piano on Run Through the Light, but I could never really hear it...

OK, how about this. Throughout Yes's history, there were two popular drummers who played in Yes, but overall, Yes had four drummers. Can anyone name the other two? And, no, I'm not wrong, there were two other drummers that filled the slot during Bruford brief University stint. Can anyone name them?

OK, I'll just spill it. The other drummer was Ian Wallace, who later went on to be a drummer for King Crimson on the Islands album.

What was the last Yes album to chart in the top 40 in the U.S.?

Yes, doogee, Talk is correct. It peaked on the Billboard 200 at #33 in 1994.

What was the closest Yes album ever to make it to #1 on the Billboard 200, while we're on the subject?

No, The Yes album is wrong. The actual answer is Close To The Edge, which peaked at #3 in 1972.

As for the sharkfin, is it an instrument? I can't really answer who uses it as I don't even know what the sharkfin is.

I am almost positive that 90125 was a number one album!

Unfortunately that didn't happen, even though "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" was a number 1 single for two weeks in January 1984, 90125 peaked at #5, which is still great, IMO!

A Sharkfin is an unusually shaped guitar pick with a fin on one side for strumming/picking, and grooves on the other side for raking down the strings to scratch off a lick like at the very end of Cinema. Rabin uses them.

What's the real name for the 10-string Alvarez instrument Jon used on Tormato?

I'm not totally sure, but listening closely to Tormato and the songs that he supposedly plays that instrument, I can't hear the damn thing.

As for the question, you got me. I'm not sure. Just a 10-string guitar? :jestera:

The instrument is a Cuatro, the national instrument of Puerto Rico. If you visit eBay and use cuatro as a keyword you will see them.

I remember Chris had a doctor-like getup for the 90125 tour.

Would he be wearing his "heart" on his sleeve?

Ok, my turn!!


Speaking of the 90125 tour, what song did Jon's magical guitar play "all by itself?"

Also, who 80's band was supposed to open for Yes on this tour, but backed out last minute?

Answer to 1st question - I've Seen All Good People

Answer to 2nd question - Uh, was it The Art Of Noise? The Police? The Firm? Any of these?
