Carl’s new bass player is David Pastorius, the nephew of Jaco Pastorius. The guitar player is Paul Bielatowicz, who has been with Carl for many years, and has also played/recorded with Neal Morse. Asia’s previous young guitar player was Sam Coulson. I highly recommend Paul’s solo albums, which I have. I’ve seen Paul 3 times solo or with his usual bass/stick partner, Simon Fitzpatrick, who is amazing. Happy to be friends with both Paul & Simon.

LOL!! Did I say Billy Sheehan instead of Sherwood? ?? Oops…sorry about that.

I can highly recommend any of Jon Kirkman’s Yes books, old or new. They are filled with very informative, open interviews with all of the many Yes members except Igor, and look fabulous. I’m happy to have contributed most of the memorabilia & some photos to his first 2 Yes books, out of print but well worth hunting for online.

Wow that was an amazing show gentleman glad to hear that Mark had a good time at the concert I can appreciate the knee / hip comment since I have had both my knees replaced ….lol bitch getting old..

Looking forward to the books coming Mr. Kirkman does a fantastic job with his books and the interview was simply delightful.
