Interview special 5 – Liam Barnes’ view of Yes in concert

Interview special

It was great to speak to another Yes Fan and Yes Music Podcast listener, Liam Barnes, about the Yes concert in Manchester.

“…someone’s got to be on-side from the press haven’t they?”

Liam is a journalist and has recently produced the following pieces for the Mancunian Matters website:

Yes please! Prog legends return to Manchester

Review: Yes @ Manchester Apollo 13/11/2011

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!

(Apologies for the sound quality on this interview. Liam’s laptop microphone wasn’t brilliant but I thought it was important to let you hear what he had to say.)

Interview special 4 – Mark Toner’s view of Yes in concert

Yes fanatic – Mark Toner

Yes fan and Yes Music Podcast listener, Mark Toner, was kind enough to speak to me about the Glasgow Yes concert on the current European tour. Despite being a traditionally difficult audience, the concert went down very well, I understand.

G’on yerself Benoit

Interview special 2 – Andy’s view of Yes in concert

Yes fanatic – Andy

I had a great chat with the ever-generous Andy about the Yes concert in Birmingham he attended on 11th November 2011. Another top Yes Music Podcast listener, Andy’s reflections give a fascinating insight into the current Yes line-up and their performance at Symphony Hall.

If they came again in six months time, I’d go again – I’d be there!

Coming up in future interview specials – Ben Craven – a real-life, prog rock hero!

Oliver Wakeman re-joins Yes (not really)

Yes are playing at Birmingham Symphony Hall on 11th November, 2011. I can’t afford to go, sadly, but I took a look at the website. Imagine my surprise to see from the photo on the site that Oliver Wakeman will be appearing! Ah, no, wait…that’s an old press photo:

Birmingham Symphony Hall Yes advertisement
Alan White, Chris Squire, Benoit David, Steve Howe and...oh hold on...

Yes ‘no support’ shock!

Also, I was dismayed to see that, according to the advertisement, there is no longer any support for the band we all love, despite the concert being practically sold out already! Oops, wrong again…sorry 😉
