Intresting comment about Steve while performing a Trevor Rabin song. I think you might be right Mark. Steve will be Steve no doubt.
Igor was an amazing Keyboardist no doubt its a shame it could not work out. Billy is a let it all hang it out kinda of guy I like it funny point. I think it’s going to be amazing I bet he will do just fine.
They should consider bringing Tom Breslin in to complement the keyboard section. Now we just need to get someone to play with Steve so Yes can carry on for years to come. That will be awesome to hear from Dylan himself great show gentleman as always.

Greetings Paul,
Thanks for your comments. We really appreciate it. Yeah Steve is certainly an interesting character. ..but I’m thinking he may have “softened” a little since those days.
I’m wondering if maybe Steve is looking to bring in the other son for guitar. …Hmm…so it could be:
Davison, Downes, Howe, Sherwood and Howe.
Hmm. never know.

The album and tour made for a nice balance of modern song writing and also energetic performances of the classics. The vocals definitely got a boost with Billy and instrumentation with that second guitar. Too bad it didn’t last beyond this but it’s a great milestone nonetheless.

I watched the DVD again soon after finding out you were going to talk about it and before I listened. It was fun to think about what you might say before you did. My first thought was that the vocals were so good. Of course you both mentioned that right away.

My copy of the DVD at least is in non-anamorphic widescreen – meaning it doesn’t fill the whole width of the screen. That’s too bad because otherwise it’s a fine video!

Two drummers onstage? What a novel idea! See my comment on Episode 270:

In regard to the discussion about Jay Schellen from no. 269; if he’s going to be there in case Alan can’t play, then why not set up two drum kits on stage and have them both play when Alan is well enough to do so?

This is one of the best directed/edited Yes DVDs in that it shows everyone instead of focusing on Steve Howe like the Montreux DVD. It’s funny to see Billy Sherwood at that time. I forgot he was in Yes then. I listened to The Ladder to try to tell his parts from Steve’s. His seems to be mostly rhythm parts with some fills so far. And thanks for the link to the Beacon Theater concert; really nice!
