Claire Hamill
Claire performs with Fragile at the Yes 50th Anniversary Fan Convention

Well, here we are. Friday 23rd July 2021 and we have brand new Yes music to enjoy. The Ice Bridge is available for all to listen to on Yes’ YouTube channel and Mark and I share our initial reactions to it. Sneak preview – we love it.

We also speak to the wonderful Claire Hamill in an interview I’m sure you will enjoy as much as we did. There are some amazing and hilarious recollections about Alan White and others to enjoy.

  • What was the London music scene like in the early 1970s?
  • What was Alan White like?
  • How was recording with Yes tribute band, Fragile?

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!
