    Without bassist Chris Squire (one of my favorite bassists), who passed last year, the band will never be the same. Steve Howe is a terrific guitarist. Glad I got to see them a couple of times with all the members. My favorite prog band.

      other than the Grateful Dead concerts I attended (don't ask), I saw live Yes performances the most. my favorite prog band as well.

      First time I saw them they were the opening act for the Allman Brothers in Denver in about 1971. Second time was on their 90215 Tour in the mid-1980s. Then the Reunion Tour in 2004 and I took my daughter who was a senior in high school. They were terrific and she was very impressed.

      Ha! One of my favorite groups too but thought they were never the same after Rick Wakeman left. (Wakeman has had several go rounds with Yes though over the years!)

      In fact, I think Wakeman-nicknamed "One Take Wakeman" for his ability to pick up new songs-is one of the all time greatest rock 'n' roll musicians. His session work as was his work with the Strawbs, Bowie and Yes, as well as his solo career, is extraordinary. He is truly one of my favorite rock musicians. It's scary to look at some of the greatest songs in rock history that he played on. Just a few of my favorites:

      Piano on Cat Stevens Morning Has Broken
      Elton John Madman Across the Water
      Mellotron on David Bowie's Space Oddity
      Piano on Bowie's album Hunky Dory and the outstanding piano for instance on Changes

      Funny enough, he was offered jobs with both Bowie and Yes and ended up accepting Yes's offer when Tony Kaye left the group. The rest is history with his debut on one of, if not the best Yes album, Fragile.

      So true so very true, but if I could have gotten to Clearwater Fl this evening I would have liked to see their shadow. .I always liked their music.
