    Speaking of Prog, and as we've been discussing ELP, let's dig Yes:

    Great band. One of my favorites in any genre.

    Saw them at an open shed amphitheater on a stormy night in 2000. It was an electrical storm and the lightning hits really added to the atmospherics!

    Learnt/challenged myself at playing Yes at 17 ( 1973) and decided that Steve Howe was , like them all, too pretentious.

    I'm watching the YES video right now and have gotten to the Rick Wakeman interview where he tells the "biggest limo" story. He has told that story for years and it cracks me up every time he does.

    I just last night watched "Yessongs" for the 1st time in many years. It was a Gibson guitar orgy! an ES 5 Switchmaster, a es-345, and finally the famous es-175. there might have been some others. I know Steve is famous for the 175, but it seemed to me he played the Switchmaster more.

    I've always loved their early music, didn't care much for the "owner of a lonely heart" phase.

    Yes had some good and great stuff... maybe more groundbreaking?
    I can’t say I can listen to any one album and say I like every song...
    except...
    Olias of Sunhillow. Not sure why?

    Got to see Yes in 2001 (I think) at an outdoor venue and got cosmically buzzed on a one liter bottle of homemade Kava Kava juice. Chris Squier showed up late and drunk but they put on a great three hour performance. Probably the best rock show I've been to.

    This is a pretty furious, intense version of "Heart of the Sunrise:"
