I love Yes, and I'm a babe...or (regarding the latter) so I've heard. I have trouble judging such things!

I had just finished reading the book "Ghost Rider" by Neil Peart and I ride a Honda Valkyrie, so Valkrider just seemed to fit. OK, I admit it, I just crossed over from a Rush site. I am more familiar with Rush than I am with Yes, but, I have always enjoyed listening to Yes (especially their earlier albums)and this seems like a great place to become more familiar with their music and to learn more about the band. Glad to be here.

<font color=red><font face='Papyrus'>Well then my friend, you have come to the right place! Welcome, Valkrider! Welcome to YEStalk. I too, am a big RUSH fan but I have yet to read Neil's book yet. As quiet and reserved as he is, it would be interesting to see just how far beyond his lyrics he exposes himself in the book.

As good as the VAPOR TRAILS tour was, the CLASSIC YES tour was even better! Have you heard <i>MAGNIFICATION</i> or <i>THE LADDER</i> yet? If you haven't, you are depriving yourself of some seriously good listening. Of equal importance is the fact that Rick Wakeman has rejoined! Surely this name is a familiar one to you. They have also released a wonderful DVD called "Symphonic YES" which really is a must buy! Although they were not accompanied by an orchestra this go 'round, it will still give you some sense of where they are now, albeit without Wakeman on the ivories.

We are very glad to have you join us here. We are, in fact, an international community comprised of dedicated YESheads who respectfully share opinions, insights and experiences with one another. There is much to learn about YES here within the posts of our many forums. Please feel free to explore them at your leisure. BTW, don't hesitate to start your own thread should you feel so inclined.

If you require any help navigating through the site, don't hesitate to ask. Again, we welcome you!</font id='Papyrus'></font id=red><img src=pix/icon_yes_talis.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=pix/icon_yes_yes2.gif border=0 align=middle>

I, too, was pondering some Yes-ish name to use, and "yesireebob," an expression I used to here a lot in my former life in the midwest, just popped into my head. My name is not actually Bob, and, in fact, I'm a girl!! <img src=pix/016.gif border=0 align=middle> Anyway, I have been a fan since I was 15 -- which was a VERY long time ago -- and I saw Yes back in the 70's. And I just traveled to San Diego to see them on the 2nd, with my 15-year-old metal-head son (it is his third time!). It is becoming a family tradition . . .

I wear
Yes-wear alot
people often look at the logo
and say" Yes?, are you a Yes man?
and I answer <img src=pix/icon_yes_yes.gif border=0 align=middle> .
unfortunately in most places
somebody has allready grabbed that name
so I tacked the 90125 on the end so I could still be a Yesman(since thats all anyone ever calls me anyway) and it is a Yes related number.
the thing about it is
that I have never in going on almost 3 years seen anyone post here as just plain "Yesman" so whoever grabbed the name never used it .
but the 90125 has been added in other places like Yahoo and stuff.
so if any of you play Delta Force Land Warrior online and Yesman shoots you its me!

Thanks for the welcome! I don't want change the direction of this topic so I'm going to start a new topic with some questions. From what I've seen so far, I'll expect I'll get a lot of advice. Thanks.

Jim,

I'm not a huge Rush fan, but all of Vapor Trails is excellent. And I always find Neil's lyrics very enlightening. I guess I only have so much time to give to music, and Yes takes such a big chunk of that. Rush has so much talent, I've never figured out why I don't listen more. Anyway, I have a friend who has Neil's video, where he explains his drumming style change before Test for Echo. That was fun to watch. He had such a rough life after that though.

Anyway, glad your here to share your experiences. Welcome.

<hr>Celebrate the moment, as it turns into one more.

Welcome YesireeB0b, your Yes upbringing sounds alot like mine, it's great you found this place, I just love it here, I don't have anyone in my life that loves Yes like I do, so I found a little place to escape to here and talk to great people about the band I love and other things!!! Glad to meet you!

Thanks, YesJo. It is odd, all these years I have loved this band yet have never been able to stay on top of their tours and new albums until I discovered YesWorld. And I never dreamed that so many other people felt the same way! The Internet is a wonderful thing . . .

The only thing I have been longer than a Yesfan is a Star Trek fan, and had a serious crush on Spock as a kid! Hence Vulcan 1

Original ST with Kirk, Spock, McCoy etc. is still my favorite-the characters and stories had to be interesting because they certainly did not have money to spend on special effects!

Yes, the great strength of early Trek were the self-contained story lines by some of the greatest names in SF at the time.

Incidentally, why did Harlan Ellison never attend the filming of any of those stories? Because there was too much HAM on the set.<img src=pix/icon_smile_clown.gif border=0 align=middle>

Mine is sorta combonation of my first & middle names Dolores Lynnette, shortened to Dolly lynn, then changed slightly to coinside numerologicly with my lucky number 13! Could it be anymore confusing? Actually Dali (as in DaliLama) and Lyon (long story but my middle name should have been LYONette), and it did fit the numerology!

I was trying to come up with a cool handle, with which I would impress and amaze everyone...instead I came up with 'keystoanissan.'

It's a play on the Yes album title 'Keys to Ascension,' and since I drive an Xterra, well...you get the idea.

Mine is from the planet Gong.Gong is also the name of one of my favorite bands.High T.Moonweed is one of the caracters from Gong folklore.If you can sift through all Daevid Allen's sillyness(which is delightful in the right frame of mind)you'll find some of the best jamming prog you'll ever hear!!!(IMHO)

Postby doctorsound » Fri Jan 17, 2003 2:43 am

I see that I am behind the pack on this topic but here goes...
In 1980, I was preparing to depart my home state of WV to go to North Dakota. I had put in my two weeks at my place of employment and had about a month of free time to hang with friends before the move. There was a group of guys who lived up the road from me who had a band called "Shadowfax". (Yeah, "LOTR" fan as well) The bass player and another friend of of mine got together at my house to party out before my move. What we ended up with was a thirty minute, tape recorded comedy piece we titled "Dull Roars". ( A parody of "Star Wars") Created on my 4 track reel to reel, it took two weeks of bit by bit get togetheres between their gigs and my band's final gigs to complete. The main characters were "Rosy Palms" and "Dick Harder" not to mention "Princess Inidaman". My main claim to fame in this mess was the character "The Tyrannical Dr. Sound". A baddie. Anyhoo, I moved away and forever after, these fellow players referred to me as "Dr." And so it was when I needed a screen name, I chose Doctorsound. If any one would be interested in a CD of this comedy, Make a post in here somehow and I will be happy to try to get a copy to you. ( It would be fun to see how far this legend could get ) I guess it could be free but 3.00 donation could would be appreciated to help with the postage. [:t}

<font color=red>I guess I'm late here too, but I read the topic and thought I'd said it all for myself. I didn't want to flog a dead horse, but now that I've read the other replies, I thought of a few more things . . . plus there are new folks now . . .Hi!<img src=pix/icon_smokin.gif border=0 align=middle>

The Prophet is an old college nickname, true enough, but it was coined by a Rush and ELP fan. It was not meant to be flattering, but mocking, and that's why it stuck, and why I like it. As the Brits might say, it's a "piss-take" on my personality, from reading science fiction and getting drunk! What's strange, is that it came much before I or anyone else was familiar with the Yes song. Now, I love the early Yes stuff, so it proved serendipitous. And, sometimes I do think "I'm a wee bit psychic . . ."

It's also a play on professor and profit. There's a great line in The Tempest, my favorite Shakespearian play, from Caliban, perhaps my favorite character, on his learning language. I would quote it here now, but I can't find my copy . . . Dammit, I'm a literature fanatic, not a librarian! </font id=red><img src=pix/icon_smokin.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well, I am a fan of Dr. Who, and always thought it would be cool to travel with the Doctor in the Tardis (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), hence tardistraveler.

In the tardis - I could go anywhere, anywhen! Even back to 1974 to see the Tales tour again!

Postby Independently Whole » Thu Apr 24, 2003 11:53 am

It wasn’t all that long ago that I heard the KTA material for the first time. When I listened to Mind Drive, I got such a thrill out of the abrupt transition from the Mister-Rogers-Happy-Song part to “Whole…”. I swear I saw prancing elephants when I heard that part, especially the bass line. So when I signed up for Yestalk, I had that running through my head, and figured Independently Whole was vaguely relevant to my personality type, being a bit of a loner and independent thinker, not one to follow the crowd.

Well, my handle comes from two underrated and underappreciated albums, Tales From Topographic Oceans and Drama. The 1980 refers to the year I was born, the year Drama came out, and, very sadly, the year John Lennon was taken from this earth.
