Unfortunately, it seems that Jon & Steve being about as far apart from each other as they can be in that picture is apparently symbolic.

It would have been nice if Bruford could have un-retired for one night to play with them.

I don't know what's wrong with him, but he's reportedly ill. Steve Howe said before the ceremony that he didn't think Tony would be able to make the trip.

It would have been nice. At very least he could have played a tambourine on stage...

Hey it's not the Grateful Dead! lol.....honestly I'm guessing he felt with Alan White being there and it being just two songs, it just wasn't necessary. I bet if if White couldn't do it for some reason, he'd of come out of retirement.

Squeeze in an Omaha date between KC and Milwaukee. No? Well, that's par for the course. (For most bands, anyway.)

I know they're not really brothers but isn't that Ian Anderson and Jon Anderson?

I thought it was good joke, that's the why of the written sting drum pattern...

Oh, I get it now. I don't read music so I was a little lost there. Thanks.

The new Yes album is in the works


Following the Yes‘ Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, keyboardist Rick Wakeman talked with Rolling Stone.

Asked about the planned studio album with ARW, Wakeman commented:

“Oh, we’re doing well. We’ve got three pieces that are well down the line that we’re really pleased with and which we’re working on. Hopefully by summer we should have them there. But we’re not going to rush – we want them to be as good as we possibly can make them. That’s the crucial thing.“

Following the induction ceremony, ARW has officially changed name to Yes Featuring ARW. Singer Jon Anderson explained:

“It’s very simple. The fans want it, we want it and it’s our right to use the name. Yes music is in our DNA!”

I've never see Yes and I'd like to...but I've been a big fan of Howe since the 70's, and I don't think I'd see any version without him.

What makes this even more ridiculous, is that Yestival and this tour are routing at almost EXACTLY the same time in August / September.

This is either a joke or a bitch slap from ARW! ROTF! :mrgreen:

I think it's significant that when the Dead got inducted the only two living members not to show were Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter. For those not familiar, Garcia and Hunter are the Grateful Dead. Partners. The two oldest friends in the band. I admired Garcia and Hunter for blowing it off.

You can't seriously be upset that I didn't make that distinction in my post? :roll:

They had a good reason. A lot of times it's that one band member can't get along with another, not even for one night.
