This week the whole world has been preoccupied with COVID-19, which is entirely understandable. Mark and I discuss the situation in relation to Yes later on in this episode but, maybe as a bit of light relief, we start by thinking about what Geoff Downes did next after leaving Yes following the Drama tour.
- What did Geoff Downes do between Yes and Asia?
- Did he finish it?
- Were Yes right to cancel their mini tour and their appearance at Cruise to the Edge?
Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

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 the following two creative commons sources: thanvannispen and archive.org

Kevin thank you so much for announcing my announcement! I am preparing more news about the next Play For Chris edition. Here are some notes about this YMP episode:
1-Luís Jardim is a portuguese multi instrumentalistand producer, who participated in many of Trevor Horn’s projects, notably having played bass on “Slave to the Rhythm” by Grace Jones. Also played percussion on “The Man You Always Wanted Me to be” (from Fly From Here). He is seen playing and being presented by Trevor Horn at the Prince’s Trust event dedicated to Trevor.
2-My guess is that the sound effects provided by Chris are simply the applause background (a la Release Release) which most probably belong to a Yes concert recording, courtesy of Chris.
3-I do remember “I am a Camera” playing on local radio but it certainly wasn’t a major hit. Later, when I discovered Yes I instantly remembered the song in “Into the Lens”.
Hi Kevin and Mark. Re concert cancellations, it probably goes without saying that events are moving too fast for a weekly podcast – my two concerts for next week have both been cancelled (Steve Hackett and Brand X). I believe both were pre-CTTE gigs. I think I got lucky seeing Trevor Horn with Dire Straits Legacy last week.
Hi guys. Having been on all but 1 of the Yes cruises, but did pay for that one & had to cancel last moment, I fully agree that it needed to be postponed, no question, for all involved, the musicians, passengers, and crew. Common sense.
Personally, I was to see Dennis DeYoung & band last night at a theatre here in Ohio, but it’s been postponed to July. Likewise, our Chicago gig in April has been postponed to an unknown date. I have tickets to 3 gigs in May, including my friends Kansas, and am waiting to see what happens there. Everyone stay healthy!
Sadly, given the status as of Sunday night, I’m just waiting for the announcement that the spring tour of Europe is postponed.
Maybe a silver lining to the cancellations will be that Yes Members will have a lot of spare time in which they can write some new music! Let’s hope so.
I have been thinking about this the past week. I think all concert tours are a bust for the remainder of 2020. A positive consequence of this should be loads of collaborative new music put together over the internet.
