Thanks for your reply, I too have lost all faith in Jon Anderson, I know he's been ill but the amount of uncompleted projects he has is just laughable.
I guess politics and bias always exist on every site but I agree Tim is rather inconsistent in his approach to banning people and what he does and doesn't approve of.
I wish this site could get more traffic..

I heard that some of them may have gotten together to discuss plans for the next album last month.  Any truth to that?

I'd love to see a Yes album where they just let Geoff Downes do his vision of what Yes should be.  I think maybe there is some momentum for both a more progressive and a more 80esque Yes there between Downes and Davison and the rumors I have heard about where they want the band to be.  Maybe Close to the Edge meets Drama meets 90125 meets Heaven and Earth?  I'd be thrilled with that.  Maybe Howe, Squire, and White would be willing to give that a try- I hear Davison pushed hard for the band to be more progressive on the last album and was told no, but Heaven and Earth I don't think was a tremendous success in terms of sales or reviews (Though I enjoyed it- "Believe Again" is great).  So, maybe the band would be willing to give it a shot.  And I think Downes trying to write in the mold of what Yes sounded like in the 80s could also lead to good results.  Kind of a mix of those two styles with a hint of  modern prog and some experimental stuff to push forward a bit here and there?

Yes is finished. The last two albums were awful. The only exciting aspect remains some of the solo performances. How can you have a band going about with not even one original member left in it? They have diluted themselves too much. Too many line-up changes have killed the magic. Steve is still great but his solo or Jazz trio performances are infinitely more enjoyable than that current excuse for Yes.

And they both suck.  

Look, Rick is great, anytime, anywhere playing anything.
But I don't want to have to hear Rabin shredding everything to death beside him. So I've left it alone.

Thank goodness Rick still does the occasional lovely Rabin-free piano performance.

To all intents and purposes, as a creative force, Yes was finished at the end of the 70s. They made some magical, truly breathtaking music during that amazing decade, but if truth be told, had they folded completely after Tormato, the world wouldn't have missed all that much. Sure, there have been a few stabs at past glories since, but they've been few and far between. The Rabin era, whether or not you think it was good/great or sucked dino balls (the latter for me), had little or nothing to do with real Yes music.

I've played hundreds of times (and continue to regularly play to this day) classics like TYA, Fragile and of course the Holy Trinity comprising CTTE, Tales and Relayer. There aren't too many groups with a body of work like 70s Yes. I'm so happy I was able to go along for the ride. It was a very special time.

The personality divisions and the horrible decision to go out and be Yea in 1982 with Horn ruined Yes. The band was magnificent for a decade and then it was over. A little like Tiger Woods career
