Rolling with Brian Chatton – The Warriors, Jon Anderson, Patrick Moraz, Keith Emerson and other stories – 599

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller

Thanks to YMP Patron Doug Curran, we were able to speak to Brian Chatton this week. A friend of and collaborator with Jon Anderson since the 1960s, Brian has indeed ‘Rolled with Rock Royalty’ and our conversation shed light on a variety of eras of Yes and the other bands and artists Brian has been associated with.

No single interview with Brian could possibly scratch the surface of his extraordinary life and career so do check out his amazing book:

  • When did Brian meet Jon Anderson?
  • How did a boy from Bolton survive in Germany?
  • What did Brian get up to with Keith Emerson?

Let us know if you agree with us!

Spot the Yes men with Brian…

Olias of Sunhillow inspires the making of this Indie-Prog album by Peter D’Amore – 598

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller

This week we spoke to the generous Peter D’Amore, the longtime Yes fan who spent 7 years making his own ‘Olias’ album, an indie/Prog 2-CD project. We talk about his music, his Yes influences and many aspects of the band including the latest album and the setlist that was played on the warm-up night a couple of days ago.

I’ve embedded several of Peter’s YouTube videos into the show notes including his recent collaboration with Billy Sherwood, so do take a listen to those.

  • How did Peter discover Yes?
  • How did Peter miss out on playing live with the band?
  • Why is Yes so important to him and his wife?

Let us know if you agree with us!

Yes Album Listening Guides – Tales From Topographic Oceans Part 4 – Sid Smith talks about the context – 597

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller

The hugely knowledgeable Sid Smith joined us again this week to chat about the context of Tales from Topographic Oceans. Sid wrote the sleeve notes for the Steven Wilson remix of Tales which was released by Panegyric in 2016.

He also wrote the remarkable book, ‘In the Court of King Crimson – An Observation over Fifty Years’, so we were delighted to be able to ask him about the relationship between Crimson main man, Robert Fripp, and Bill Bruford.

  • Why did Fripp want Bruford?
  • Why did Yes decide to push the boundaries even further with Tales?
  • How influential was the album?

Let us know if you agree with us!

Sid in his happy place
Buy Sid’s brilliant book – you really should

Stephen Lambe on his updated book – Yes every album, every song – 596

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller

Stephen Lambe joins us in a moment to talk about his updated, comprehensive Yes book as well as touching on Tales and Trevor Rabin.

https://burningshed.com/store/sonicbond

  • What has Stephen added to his already great Yes book?
  • What does he think of the current state of Yes?
  • Where can you get his book?

Let us know if you agree with us!

We are entering another period of intense Yes activity this week with the band preparing for its US tour, Trevor Rabin releasing singles from his forthcoming album, Rio and perhaps the most seismic happening of all, the 600th episode of the Yes Music Podcast. We have a rather special guest lined up to join us in our celebration so it’s bound to be one to remember. Mark and I are also planning a charity event to coincide with the milestone and more information on that will be coming soon, unless you are already a YMP Patron, of course – in which case I’ve already let them into the secret. It pays to be a Patron, as they say.
