It was lovely to welcome back onto the YMP our friend and patron, Geoff Bailie this week. Mark and I spoke to him about the recent news that Yes will be on tour with Deep Purple in the US and Canada this Summer. What do you think of that idea? Well, self-confessed Deep Purple fan Geoff shares some thoughts with us and we discuss pretty much every aspect of the forthcoming tour, as you would expect. Do leave your own thoughts on the show notes for this week.

  • Why are Yes touring with Deep Purple?
  • Is this a co-headlining tour or are Yes the support act?
  • Will Yes always play first?

Let us know if you agree with us!

Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from:

  • Are these live performances or are the band miming to a tape?
  • Do the tracks show us anything interesting from the early days of the band?
  • Is the DVD worth finding and buying?
