YES carries on, with and despite many complexities

Postby tribute1969 » Mon Dec 08, 2008 11:23 pm

Here's an article from the Nashville Sunday paper...
Not as much of a "gloss over" as most, but still it hurts to see
Jon portrayed as "disturbed" about this........


Being the "glass is half empty" person about all of this....

Notice Squire is the ONLY one that photo that isn't looking the camera in the eye..
Body Language tells alot....lol

Jon is making money off the songs they perform that he has rights too, but probably not
any of the "Drama" tunes so besides the "artistic" reasons for playing them again,
there are profit motives as well...I haven't noticed YES with Jon playing many ABW&H tunes either.
I understand I understand...lol

Again, my only beef with the talented and "dead on Jon styled vocalist"
Benoit was he should have insisted on being involved with Jon on this
and the other members should not be using the "YES" logo as much even though they legally can even
though they chose not to involve Jon.
I hope someday Benoit and Oliver ARE full members of "YES" with full rights, etc
with Jon involved with them and the direction and decisions of the group..It's really NOT that COMPLEX....

The ads for The Ryman performance all say "YES" and many do not even
say "with Squire, Howe and White".....


When remaining members of Led Zeppelin tour next year without Robert Plant , they will change their name to "Zeppelin" much in the way the remaining members of "The Grateful Dead" changed their name to "The Dead" after Jerry Garcia's passing.....Robert Plant has stated in the press and to his former bandmates directly (probably looking them straight in the eye, I'd imagine...) his reasons for not wanting to tour with "Led Zeppelin" now and is very aware what is going on, unlike Jon who was blindsided and "disturbed" (as he was trying and by all accounts still is trying to recover from a near death experience) as stated in the article above. Jon's situation was like a "Palace Coup" where I guess one dictator replaced another...nothing "complex" about that either...

Yes carries on, with and despite many complexities
By Dave Paulson THE TENNESSEAN
December 07, 2008 02:44 AM

He's been in the band for more than 30 years, but even Alan White, drummer for progressive rock pioneers Yes, was the new guy at one point. In 1972, he was given the task of replacing original drummer Bill Bruford - just as the band was releasing their landmark album Close to the Edge.

With that in mind, it seems fitting that White, along with longtime Yes members Steve Howe and Chris Squire, have warmly welcomed two new musicians into the fold for their 2008 tour.

The first is keyboardist Oliver Wakeman - son of Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman, who isn't crazy about doing long tours these days. The other appointment is more controversial: Vocalist Benoit David, who fronts a Yes tribute band in Montreal, is filling in for lead singer Jon Anderson.


Anderson was forced to postpone a Yes tour earlier this year after being diagnosed with acute respiratory failure following a severe asthma attack. Since the rest of the band decided to carry on with David, Anderson has publicly voiced his disapproval. (The tour is being billed as Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Alan White of Yes.)

"He was a little disturbed when he heard that this was happening," White says. "He wasn't very happy, but I think he's come to realize that the band has to keep playing. I've gotten a couple of e-mails from him saying, 'I understand what's happening now.' It seems like he's getting well, but it's really slow. It's going to take a long time for him to get well."


You could hardly ask for a better mimic of Anderson's signature high-pitched vocal than David, whom the band discovered on YouTube, while Oliver Wakeman, White says, "has done really well. He plays just like (Rick).

"The fans seem to be accepting Benoit and Oliver into the fold. Everybody in the band is playing really well right now. The crowds have been very receptive, and seem to be having great fun just listening to Yes music again."

White, Howe and Squire rehearsed with their new members for two weeks, preparing for In the Present - the band's first U.S. tour in three years.

"It takes a while to get two new members used to playing the songs. Steve, Chris and myself pretty much knew most of the material straight away, but there are some songs that we haven't played for a long time. We're doing material from Drama, which Jon would never sing. We're getting the chance to play songs we haven't played on stage for maybe 27 years."


Of course, the In the Present setlist also includes plenty of Yes classics. There are the standby rock hits like "Roundabout" and "I've Seen All Good People." There are heady multi-movement jams such as "Siberian Khatru" and "South Side of the Sky." Even the band's one-off '80s pop hit, "Owner of a Lonely Heart," gets a slot. It's a well-rounded look at a band that - from its arrangements to its stylistic departures and ever-shifting lineup - has thrived in complicated situations.

"That's the nature of what we are," White says. "We've been complex since day one."

I think they should change their name to H.S.W., Yes-without-Jon, The Band Formerly Called Yes, 3 Yesmen, Yes Musicians, the Yes substitute Band, A Band with No Name, Something Like Yes, Everchanging Yes, Some Type of Yes Group, Sorta Like Yes, A Bit of Yes, Fickle Yes Band, We Called Ourselves Yes, Pseudo Yes, Not Exactly Yes, etc

I am a huge Jon Anderson fan. Having said that... well... I'm pretty damn impressed with Mr. David. Jon always talked about Yes living on after them all. Perhaps over the next few years, Jon can mentor the guy and we'll see what happens. Oliver has already started that process I think. So what the heck. We'll see. I just know that I do like the sound.

All they had to do is involve the fans and Jon prior...or come clean and been straight forward, "We're In It For The Money"...that's ok...NOT use the name YES so much...not now with Jon sick and recovering...
