Re: Wow where'd everybody go?

Hello Yesfriends. The "remember me" option doesn't work for me for some reason, and the "log into" link gives me an error message as if the site doesn't exist. I discovered that I can get to the site with the "check out Yestalk" link. Overcoming that I saw less and less being said, so I said less an...

Re: Photos: Ft. Worth and Muskogee

Re: Favorite holiday things

My favorite part of the holidays is a couple weeks after they are over, after the pre holiday anxiety, gets replaced by the post holiday depression, then one day the sun shines and things are just things again for a while. However the last couple years it has been fun to watch Badder Santa with Bill...

Re: Yessong of the week: South Side of the Sky

Cracking song, it is one of my all-time favourite Yes riffs and great when you are "up against it". I've lost count of the times in my life when I've faced that difficult task and I've found myself repeating "A river, a mountain to be crossed" over and over. Back in the day, me and my YESfriends wh...

Re: Yessong of the week parallels.

Parallels Before I was into Yes I was into Bach, Beethoven, and Beach Boys. This song is virtuosity at the horse races. I see this song as (Dr, Evil voice) a homonym. One word, two meanings. Musically they take the parallel fifth and turn it into sonic fireworks. Lyrically they explore the parallels...

Re: Yessong Of The Week: Endless Dream

Endless Dream In a way, this song reminds me of the movie Benchwarmers. There is that one dude that can hit one out of the ball park consistently, and everyone else is along for the ride. I’m a huge fan of Squire. This song is Fish at his most subdued. I think Howe is the essence of guitar in Yes. H...

Two hours before the show I got front row seats for $7.50 a ticket. The show was awesome. It was every bit a Yes-show. PS: I was p...
