Steve Howe Interview from the Belfast Telegraph

Fascinating interview with Yes' guitarist. He muses about, amongst other things, life on the road, the impact of Progressive Rock on younger artists and how much Canadians sound like Jon Anderson.

Bunch of Yes men - News, Music & Gigs -
“We were told that there was this amazing guy in a cover band in Canada who sounded like Jon and we thought, ‘Wow, he’s obviously faking it as not many people in the world sound like Jon’, but he was the real deal. He just happens to be the other person in the world, unbelievably, who can sound naturally like him, and it doesn’t surprise me that he’s Canadian, because a lot of the twang of their accents is similar to the northern parts of England.”
