Congratulations on 5 years !!!
Loved this podcast and how we heard how Yes music is entwined in people’s life’s. That was a really nice story re JA . CF such a sad disease.
Looking forward to AWR when I travel to the UK in March and hopefully Yes will do Relayer live in the near future

Thanks Fergus! WE are very lucky at the moment to have so much Yes goodness to enjoy in all its different guises!

At the time of this interview, I made light of the current feuding going on between competing Yes camps. I had not been following things so closely… Since then I’ve been reading up and all I can say is, WOW! Everyone needs to turn it down a notch. The more Yes music the better. That’s my motto.

Thanks chaps. Great interview. Like Jamie I’m not aware of the feuding and could care less. Anyway it was a very interesting listen, especially touching regarding his pal and Jon’s response.

I’m sure Kevin, that when you embarked on this podcast, you didn’t envision the family of good people who’d be drawn together.

No indeed. It’s remarkable that there has been so little negativity, unlike some other websites and between certain musicians!
