Funny that actually reminds of the time, back around '73, I'd heard of Yes, but not actually heard any of their music. One of my friends had bought - I think - Yesterdays
. Curious I asked him what they were like. His response was 'Oh, sorta like Bowie - only a bit more poofie..."
I suppose a lot of adolescents would see our faves as "gay" (the expression is used this side of the pond - but I think it's a bit more marginal).
I used to be agnostic. These days I'm not so sure.
