Re: Our new album officially released yesterday

I know pretty much how you feel.

Every band I was ever in, as soon as something started happening, someone would leave and before the hole could be filled, the band fell apart.

I've taken to doing things by myself from now on.

Re: What now?

What has clinched it for me is Chris's words regarding the band and that they should carry on. When Chris left us, For me Yes were finished as for me, Chris not being in the band left too big a hole in the sound but I have yet to hear Billy Sherwood and his playing but by all accounts, he is a prett...

Why do people always persist in questioning whether or not Yes are finished or not ? As long as the members are living and breathing, there will always be the chance of them working together. You never can tell what is around the corner but one thing is for sure. None of us can predict what may or m...

I could never quite understand why so many people including me thought that around about 1978 ish, he lost something and has never got it back.
Him and Bernie Taupin made some great albums and songs pre 1978 and ever since then, his music has verged on average to boring.

This is great news as for some unexplained reason, i missed the Jon Anderson tour last year and still feel sick about it.
Must admit, i was never that keen on the English Rock Ensemble outings but the operatic tour was even worse but i think this combination will be well worth the door money to see.
