R.I.P. Alan White, Yes’ stalwart drummer throughout decades of Perpetual Change – 535

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius and Wayne Hall

Next week’s YMP episode will be a proper tribute to Alan White so please add your contributions in the comments section below.

This week, rather than a ‘standard’ episode we thought it would be appropriate to re-play our interview with Alan from January 2020. He was in fine form, as always and it was a joy to speak to him.

‘Legendary’ is an entirely apt description of this true gentleman, extraordinary musician and friend to all he encountered. R.I.P. Alan.

Original interview episode show notes:

Mark and I have ticked off another of our top ambitions on the podcast by speaking to Yes drum legend, Alan White. We cover a number of different topics and Alan is absolutely delightful, as I’m sure you know.

For the first time in ages, I also managed to do a news catch-up which features a few highlights from around the social webs in recent days and/or weeks and do listen out for a couple of new items. I hope you enjoy the whole episode!

  • What did Alan think of From A Page?
  • What is Alan’s favourite Yes album??
  • What is Relayer going to be like to play live in 2020?
Alan White from the Ramshackled album

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

Mark recently uploaded a video in appreciation of his fellow Canadian, Neil Peart. I thought it was important to hear what he had to say here as well, particularly as I am almost ignorant of Neil and Rush’s importance in the world of Prog rock.

So here’s Mark’s heartfelt introduction to his video. You can see the whole video here –
