Dave Kerzner on Arc of Life – 482

Arc of Life
Those chaps from Arc of Life

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall and Preston Frazier

This week Mark and I had a highly enjoyable conversation with Dave Kerzner about his position with Billy Sherwood, Jon Davison, Jay Schellen and Jimmy Haun in Arc of Life. We talk about what he would like the band to grow into and delve a little into his keyboard work with Geoff Downes and Tony Banks. It was a real pleasure to welcome Dave back onto the show.

  • What does Dave want to see in the future for Arc of Life?
  • It’s not Yes but what is it?
  • What did Dave do for Geoff Downes?

Billy Sherwood on Arc of Life 466

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

This week, Mark and I had the pleasure of speaking to Billy Sherwood about Arc Of Life, the band and the album.

We also asked him about the widely rumoured new Yes studio album and he was, unsurprisingly, less forthcoming about that. It did lead to some light-hearted moments which we think you will enjoy though.

  • Where did Arc Of Life spring from?
  • Who plays what?
  • What are the plans for the future of the band?

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

Arc of Life First Impressions – 464

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

This week, Mark and I have had the chance to listen to the whole of the new Arc of Life album so listen out in a few moments for our initial reactions to that.

We also have time to think about a 2 pence suggested by Jeremy North and I need to correct an omission from last week when we played Daniel and Amanda’s contribution to the What if Rick Wakeman had joined Yes before the Yes Album question but didn’t have time to add any feedback.

  • What is the full Arc of Life album like?
  • Is the music different to the singles?
  • Is it prog – and does it matter?

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

Mark and I are back this week with the second part of our look at the World Trade album Euphoria in our what did they do next series this time featuring Billy Sherwood.

We also have a chance to give our two pence on a topic which compares Roger Dean’s approach to that of Yes themselves. I hope you find all that interesting.

  • What is Euphoria like?
  • How does Jay Schellen sound?
  • Does this sound like Open Your Eyes?

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