Yikes. That sounds like a potential Tormato break up all over again. Seriously...if Jon doesn't feel like being a part of Yes for a couple of years and the rest of them do, maybe they'll replace him again. And who knows with Rick? He's said he's looking forward to being a part of Yes again, but how long will it last?

So, maybe the guys will replace Jon and make a new album, or perhaps they won't feel confident trying to make a successful album/tour without Jon's songwriting skills and classic stage presence.

I meant to clarify the part about Jon not being apart of Yes and the guys not having the confidence to make a new album without him: It's going to be REALLY hard these days, when Yes' popularity is already waning. This ain't the '70s, folks.

On the other hand, who knows? Maybe the next generation (myself included) will keep the torch of Yes fandom burning...thoughts, anyone?

I'd like to see Yes evolve with new members if neccessary, rather than disappear. Why not have a Yes dynasty that perpetuates the wonderful musical foundation they have created over the last 35 years. It's the ability to change and intergrate new quality personel over the years that has kept them going.

Postby theproffet » Thu Dec 02, 2004 9:01 am

I'm thinking of this, with one eye to the Yes touring thing--the boys have been doing well--I've seen some Billboard information saying they placed sixteenth in concerts this year. For a 70's band, that's very damn good . . .

And yet . . .

Jon's a bit burnt out, but perhaps studio work may be may do-able?

Hell, I wouldn't mind a bit less of Jon on another release . . .

I think Jon's just jaded and a bit pissed off with everything. It's been a long tour and despite his openly lovey-doveyness on stage he's still a nightmare to work with. His love/hate thing with Chris has resurfaced as a result of the pressure of playing the same old stuff again and again and again and their erm . . . .obviously different lifestyles, added to which, he's disillusioned with the whole industry - again.

A break is much needed and well earned.

I agree, Dr. ...Poor Jon had put so much hope into Open Your Eyes, The Ladder, and Magnification, and none of them did as well he hoped. That can kind of put a damper on your motivation, eh?

And Terry, you're right, IMO...he most certainly has earned his rest. But I can dream, can't I? ;)

I remember so well when Rick joined this last time it
made to the news of our local rock station. They
interviewed him and asked why he joined again.
He said something like, "I can't wait to get into
the studio and record with Yes again."

Ho Hum.
Progressive will never be a popular form of music simply due to the fact that the average person has a 'attention span' of less than three minutes with a simple beat.

I personally feel that Yes would not be the same without Jon Anderson,
His influence has made Yes the kind of band that gives that mystical,
colorful feel to the music. Not to mention his sense of melody and unique
vocals is a big part of Yes' sound. I really hope Jon is in the next recording
effort whole-heartedly!

When Jon talked to me and my son at the airport, he mentioned doing a double-CD solo project after the tour. I think he mentioned that in an interview as well. A massive follow-up to Olias. Sounds like he has some of his own material he wants to work on for now. And why not, the band has toured very extensively for the last couple of years and I'm sure some distance, some individual projects will do them all some good. But as good as they have been playing together on tour, it would really be a shame if they did not get together for one more collaboration as Yes! (and another tour!)

I agree, Yes is just not Yes without Jon. He may not be the backbone, but his voice and song writing are the heart and soul of the band.

Take a year or so off, do solo projects, come back, record a new album (and the idea about the band laying down the music first isn't a bad one actually), tour it a little - not run themselves into the ground but good, solid, two-hour shows at decent-sized 2-4000 seat venues - and then, wrap up with a two-three day festival EXTRAVAGANZA, featuring any current and ex-Yes member who wants to come along. Fill the 'festival' event (such as it is) with nothing but songs by the various lineups of Yes, along with solo shows by all the ex-members (or their bands - Asia, Conspiracy) to fill out the time!
But I've mentioned that last idea before. ;) Still, just because Yes is aging doesn't mean they have to wrap it up JUST yet. I see 2007 as their last year, actually, but I could be wrong. I will say that it's pretty much pointless for them to continue on as Yes without Jon - in fact, at this point, I think any lineup 'subtraction' would prove to be fatal.

YES deserve a break, and I hope that they will most likely find their way back to each other again. An interview I saw with Jon, he said that he had tons of songs penned that he needed to finally record. I believe he hears the clock ticking and wants to get busy laying these tracks down. This seems like the perfect time with Chris doing the SYN reunion. I have not heard Anderson say one positive word about recording a new YES cd with Rick. Not because of Rick but as a previous post said I think Jon was disappointed that OYE, The Ladder, and Magnification did not sell the way he had expected. FM radio has abandoned playing new releases from established bands and even though YES can (for the most part) still sell out MSG in NYC the truth is older fans in their 40's do not buy as many CD's as younger folks do. I'm an exception, as I am a music nut but my close friends buy two or three CD's a year while I buy 50. The sad part is that YES fans in their 40's and 50's have more money now to buy CD's then they have ever had before! Unfortunatelythey have let that part of themselves slip away as they sit on the couch and channel surf or attend their childrens various events. As for Rabin ever coming back, no way, he is making a ton of cash scoring movies and has a waiting list lined up. There is a better chance of Peter Banks coming back than Rabin :D and we know that ain't happening. Or is it.......................................................... :eek:
