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!

Our (not really) new Facebook YMP Discussion Group is open to anyone to join but I’ll be adding rules and joining requirements when I have time (one day…). One of the advantages of the new format is that all members of the group have the same ability to post content, so it’s a bit more egalitarian, or somesuch. Please do search for the group and join in.
If you are still listening to the podcast on the website, please consider subscribing so you don’t risk missing anything:
The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from: archive.org
