Found Link: Yes interviewed in Washington

Ahead of their concert in Washington this weekend, Yes was interviewed by a local publication. Here are the results.

Squire laughs off the Prog epics of the 70s as foolish juvenile excessiveness. I doubt they would have got that quote from Steve Howe, whom is still quite proud of the work that Yes were able to accomplish in the glory years.

Express Night Out | Arts & Events | Affirmative Action: Yes
The band's 1972 pair of albums — "Fragile" and "Close to the Edge" — form the foundation of prog rock, a divisive genre whose musical, sartorial and narcotic excesses would inspire a backlash that led to humbler DIY styles like punk rock. "It was a wild ride back then," laughs Squire. "We were young, and it was a great time to be excessive."
