New Jon Anderson Interview

Interviewed in Toronto last week, the former lead singer of Yes (sounds weird eh?) is in a very reflective stage of his career. Confronted with serious illness, the tiny man has taken his banishment from Yesworld with good humour and only slight frustration. Apparently, while he knows he's in no shape to go on the long big-stage tours that the rest of the band are still keen on, he just wishes that Chris, Alan and Steve were a bit more open in talks of finding a replacement for his extra-high vocals.

He also comments on the speculation of an alternate Yes band being formed with himself, Rick Wakeman and 80s heartthrob and Owner of a Lonely Heart composer Trevor Rabin. Apparently he's quite keen on the idea and it's really just a matter of finding time in everyone's schedule.

Roundabout path brings Yes’ Anderson to Hub -
"“I think that will happen around the time we get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, when we’re all 90. Like Rick says, we’ll all come along in our wheelchairs.”"
