Interview special 6 – Martin Jones’ view of Yes in concert

Interview special

Martin Jones went to the Bristol concert so it was great to talk to another Yes Music Podcast listener recently about his experiences.

During Starship Trooper this lady was thrown out…the first time I’ve ever seen that at a Yes concert!

Martin shares this and other reflections on the 2011 Yes tour.

If you have a Yes story you’d like to share, please get in touch – I’d be more than happy to speak to you via Skype!
