R.I.P. Alan White

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Yes drummer Alan White.
Alan was a brilliant drummer and a very kind spirited person. One of my favorite memories of Alan is when we had the chance to interview him for the Yes Music Podcast. He was funny and very easy to talk to. This is a great loss, not only to Yes fans but to the music world as well.
Rest in Peace Alan.

Your friends – Mark Anthony K & Kevin Mulryne

Yes Live at the Royal Albert Hall in 2022 – 539

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius

I had an amazing time in London with new and old Yes friends on 21st June 2022. The concert was stunning and you’ll hear me banging on about it in this episode.

A magical evening of Yes music in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Close To The Edge which was performed perfectly to a full house at one of the most iconic of all venues.

It’s only the 10th time Yes have played at the RAH and it’s also 10 years since Jon Davison joined the band.

  • What was the performance like?
  • How did the setlist work?
  • What was the experience like?

Take a listen to the episode and then let us know what you think below!

R.I.P. Alan White, Yes’ stalwart drummer throughout decades of Perpetual Change – 535

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius and Wayne Hall

Next week’s YMP episode will be a proper tribute to Alan White so please add your contributions in the comments section below.

This week, rather than a ‘standard’ episode we thought it would be appropriate to re-play our interview with Alan from January 2020. He was in fine form, as always and it was a joy to speak to him.

‘Legendary’ is an entirely apt description of this true gentleman, extraordinary musician and friend to all he encountered. R.I.P. Alan.

Original interview episode show notes:

Mark and I have ticked off another of our top ambitions on the podcast by speaking to Yes drum legend, Alan White. We cover a number of different topics and Alan is absolutely delightful, as I’m sure you know.

For the first time in ages, I also managed to do a news catch-up which features a few highlights from around the social webs in recent days and/or weeks and do listen out for a couple of new items. I hope you enjoy the whole episode!

  • What did Alan think of From A Page?
  • What is Alan’s favourite Yes album??
  • What is Relayer going to be like to play live in 2020?
Alan White from the Ramshackled album

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think.
