Any fans of the rock band YES? They're one of my favorite groups, and Rick Wakeman (their on-again/off-again keyboardist) is one of the best musicians ever.

My fave YES song would have to be "Release, Release".

I like your taste in art rock. My favorite song was "You and I" due to
the moog(Modular keyboard) effect and another was Roundabout.

Sincerely,

I'm a big Chris Squire fan and have always liked Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman...all excellent players.

But I do supplant my own lyrics to Owner Of A Lonely Heart: "Only a Baloney F*rt"

Yes are a great prog band. My fav songs are 'Roundabout', 'Owner of a Lonely Heart', 'Parallels', 'Heart of the Sunrise' but most particularly, 'Starship Trooper'.

Starship Trooper is great. I also love Close to the Edge.

BTW, here is a hilarious mashup of Owner of a Lonely Heart and I like Big Butts

http://webjay.org/iteminfo/7746311/dd28 ... bc50175e4f

It's called "Owner of a Lonely Butt"

Enjoy. 8)




(Actually its called Owner of a Lovely butt but I like my name better.
:P)

Yes is one of my favorite bands and Rick Wakeman the one best keyboardist ever. Really like Close to the Edge. Have you ever head Jon Andersons Olias of Sunhillow?

They're not my usual 'kind of thing', but oddly enough I have been known to listen to them, mainly their 70s era stuff (not into 90125, really).

Yes is one of my all-time favourite bands. I saw them in Winnipeg in 1980, from the second row, right next to Rick Wakeman's keyboard bay. When he did his big solo of the evening and ran out of hands, what he did was arranged weights on some of the keys to hold them down while he played something else.

Oh, and there was a trap door in the stage next to his keyboards, and a roadie would occasionally open the door and pass him a beer. :)

My favourite Yes song is the first one I ever heard: "Your Move," from The Yes Album. I love it when the pipe organ comes in near the end.

YES! I love them. They were the band that got me into music, before them I had almost no interest in music. So far I've seen them in concert 4 times. I have every album that Yes has ever put out, as well as the "Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe" album. Not to mention a few solo albums of Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman .

Steve Howe brought me to tears the first time I saw him play And You And I (my favourite song of theirs) not to mention The Clap will always leave me breathless.

Rick Wakeman is also a big favourite of mine, I have his Live in Buenos Aires concert which I've watched a hundred times, I cant get over how amazing that guy is.

Yep, I'm a Yes fan, particularly early Yes. I think my favorite album is "Tales from Topographic Oceans", which I used to listen to on the way out to the desert...

They seemed to lose a little "umph" when they replaced Howe with Trevor Rabin, but they are one of the best bands on R&R history.
