Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius
This week Mark and I began to think about the next musician Yes wanted to sign up, this time as a live associate member of the band for the 1994 Talk Tour. We talk about Billy’s connections to Yes members, his involvement with Union and lots of other topics. You’ll also find out what record we have chosen to listen to next week for some clues as to Billy’s suitability to join Yes at this point.
In addition, we have time for a two pence segment about the recent sale of Yes’ Atlantic back catalogue to Warner Bros. and what this means for the band and the fans.
- What did Yes know about Billy at this point?
- What about him attracted their attention?
- Why did they want a sixth member of the band for this tour?
Join me on the Facebook Group Page on Monday 30th January 2023 as I post some live video about my own personal Tourmato!https://traffic.libsyn.com/kevinmulryne/ep567_why_yes_want_billy_pt1.mp3

Facebook has just changed how pages work which means that I’ve had to establish a new place for us to post and discuss Yes-related happenings. It’s a new group entitled, rather creatively, YMP Discussion Group. For the moment it’s open to anyone to join but I’ll be adding rules and joining requirements when I have time. 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 haven’t already done so, please sign up at tormatobook.com to the email newsletter. PRESALE IS UNDERWAY! If you sign up now, for free, you can have access to the newsletters you’ve missed. It really helps to know people are looking forward to reading the culmination of my decades of Tormato obsession.
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
