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?

Yestival is the Steve Howe Show – 294

Two Sides of Peter Banks

Produced by Preston Frazier, Bill Govier, Wayne Hall and Michel Arsenault.

On social media this week there was a suggestion that Steve Howe has taken over Yes – in organisation and playing. So we investigate this claim by watching some live videos of 2017 and much earlier. Also, we have Preston Frazier with us to talk about his recent experience of Yestival and some two pences. Mark also continues his obsession with a review of Two Sides of Peter Banks.

  • Has Steve Howe taken over?
  • Is he dominating Yes?
  • What was it like at a Yestival concert?
