A Star Becomes a Trooper on the Eve of STAR WARS

Everything has lined up for this stellar event in my life. 3 is the magic number (my favorite number) and 7s are lucky. As of this post, I'm the 3rd Starship Trooper and the 7th member in number of posts. Not only that, this all happens on the Eve of STAR WARS. I was 7 when this movie came out. I st...

Well, that sucks! Konocti is out of the picture since it's already been on sale. Fine job Yesworld did getting their act together <i>after</i> Konocti went on sale.

The only other idea I have at this point is for Yes to tour with another big band. I know this might drive up ticket prices, and I know some of you don't have the stamina for 2 performers, but I think it is another way for them to push their music on non-Yes fans. Who could they tour with? U2 would ...

I fully agree with Ray. Give Drama a chance. While it's not my favorite, it's pretty good. "I Am a Camera" is the cheesiest track btw, so you've heard the worst, IMO.

Ra, like you, I completely adore the lyrics of Yes. Also, I'm am occasionally stumped on the meaning behind the music.

E-tickets? Haven't heard of that one, yet. But, sounds like a good idea, especially if you could get them from the venue. That would certainly take TM out of the picture.
