David Cross Interview – Crossover album with Peter Banks – 415

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

I hope you heard Mark’s tribute to Neil Peart who very sadly died recently – I put the audio of his video introduction into the YMP feed. I’m not qualified to comment on Rush or Neil Peart so I’m grateful to Mark for letting me use his words which I’m sure come from us all after the unexpected and tragic news.

You may have been expecting the second part of our Trevor Horn episode this week but when we had the chance to talk to prog rock violin legend, David Cross about his collaboration with Peter Banks, we couldn’t miss the opportunity. So we will return to Dollar and Trevor Horn next week. Later in this episode, you’ll hear that great interview which covers not only the newly-released Crossover album but also David’s recollections of Peter and of the early London prog rock scene, where he played with his own bands and, of course, King Crimson.

  • How did Crossover come about?
  • What impression did David have of Peter?
  • Who else is on this album?

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

Mark recently uploaded a video in appreciation of his fellow Canadian, Neil Peart. I thought it was important to hear what he had to say here as well, particularly as I am almost ignorant of Neil and Rush’s importance in the world of Prog rock.

So here’s Mark’s heartfelt introduction to his video. You can see the whole video here –

What did they do next – part 9a – Trevor Horn – 414

This week, Mark and I went in search of the first thing Trevor Horn did after leaving Yes as (reluctant) front man. He threw himself into production, with the support and encouragement of his wife and the first project was the band, Dollar. So, we have been doing a bit of research, in our own minds  and on the interwebs to see what we can remember and find out about this band and Trevor Horn’s involvement with it. It’s actually quite a bit more interesting than I thought it was going to be!

  • Who were Dollar?
  • How did Trevor Horn end up producing them?
  • Was it prog?

Review of 2019 – 413

Happy New Year image

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

I’d like to dedicate this episode of the Yes Music Podcast to the memory of BRIAN HARTLEY. You won’t have known him in person but you certainly know his work. Brian was a school friend of mine and was a brilliant cartoonist and illustrator even then. He went on to design graphics for video games but for us, he will always be best known for creating the new YMP logo and associated artwork. He died shortly before Christmas at the age of 49 and all will miss him terribly. Rest In Peace, Brian.

This week, Mark and I take a look back at our favourite episodes from the past year and look forward to 2020.

  • What were your highlights of 2019?
  • Do Mark and I agree?
  • Add yours to the show notes!

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