Peter Banks-era Yes videos – 369

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

Peter Banks

After seeing Fernando Perdomo’s Peter Banks replica Yes guitar, we were inspired to watch some early Yes videos featuring the original guitarist.

We also find time for a quick 2 Pence on a single song we would both like to add to the Cruise to the Edge set list!

  • What is Peter Banks doing on stage?
  • Could he have continued with the band?
  • What did the other members think of him?

Listen and let us know what you think!

Steve Nardelli talks about Chris Squire, Peter Banks, The Syn and Syndestructible – 362

Syndestructible

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

In our somewhat delayed episode, Mark and I speak to The Syn front man, Steve Nardelli this week. It was an amazing conversation which delved deeply into all parts of The Syn’s story including a residency at The Marquee Club, supporting Jimi Hendrix,  inventing the Rock Opera, trying to get Chris Squire to turn up to gigs on time and the influence of Peter Banks amongst many other topics.

Also this week, I announce the dramatic changes to the Yes Music Podcast which are planned for 2019. You can’t afford to miss this information. Next year is going to be very special.

  • What were Chris Squire and Peter Banks like to work with?
  • Which Welsh icon was kind to the band?
  • Why couldn’t The Syn get out of their dressing room on the night Jimi Hendrix came to town?

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

I wasn’t able to record with Mark this week but I did manage to speak to Clive Bayley of Mabel Greer’s Toyshop which morphed into Yes in 1968.

Mark also gives his recommendations for those interested in investigating what Peter Banks did next…

  • What influenced are present in this record?
  • Is Mabel Greer’s Toyshop part of the Yes legacy?
