It really looks that they just want to piss each other off nowadays... Who told you grow wiser when growing older?

Anyway, if they tour in Europe...

the drama is a sad joke at this point---especially if you had hopes of a classic line up---the body language seems to say they hate each other----I think Jon could get back with Steve but Rick seems to throw fuel on the fire.

Looking forward to a `Union'-style project that will be billed as: Yes and Yes featuring Anderson Wakeman Rabin playing the music of Yes featuring Anderson Wakeman Rabin and Yes'.

I don't care what they call themselves. I would be more interesten in seing ARW than Howe's Yes... though I would certainly miss Howe on guitars, I still feel Rabin just won't do the songs justice, it doesn't matter if he is trying to replicate Howe's sound, or puting his own vision into Howe's old songs... Howe still does it better.

I'd rather see Anderson & Wakeman's Yes than Howe and company these days.

I wonder if Benoit David is up for starting a third Yes? Might as well make this so complicated that nobody knows who is in what band.

I was thinking the same last night......They should do one of those multi band tours, yet all bands would be Yes.

Apparently, Yes is more of a dynamic, ever-changing collective than an actual band.

I'm not so sure about that one. I haven't heard live versions of the song with Howe so often, but as I remember it, he does it just as well... I couldn't really tell the difference. Perhaps I would need to listen one of those again... actually, I would say I was disapointed because Howe didn't add anything new to the song... unlike Rick Wakeman on the Union tour, or on this last Hall of Fame performance, adding his keyboard (keytar) solo at the end to prog it up a little. On the other hand, I can clearly hear a difference when Trevor Rabin tries to play something from Howe, and it's not for the better.

In the old days it was "THE FAREWELL TOUR". Now it's just ridiculous. Yes really ran out of steam ages ago. The only thing I would even think of going to would be  Wakeman doing some old solo stuff. Can't see how anyone can still be interested in any incarnation of Yes. Yes this is getting old. I remember buying tickets for a show in Calgary AB, Canada back in the late 90s and the show had to be cancelled due to poor ticket sales. I managed to get in touch with the promoter and he told me he wasn't going to lose his shirt like he did with ELP. These old Prog bands only have a limited appeal these days.

I never was sold on Trevor Rabid
I enjoyed Heaven And Earth.
But there can only be 1 Yes. And that Yes has long been gone.........

I had hoped all this nonsense would end with Chris Squire's passing but alas it's not to be.

Perhaps they should take a leaf out of Gilmour's book and simply retire then band name all together. Then, like Waters and Gilmour, they can each go on tour with their own separate tribute bands and still rake in the cash.

By all accounts ARW is a much better band than the other Yes, maybe they'll join up and do "Union 2".

Ermm can they afford to get that many sessions musicians together again?

Watch you tube concerts--rabin butchers genius Howe's parts on most songs---and the rearrangement of an amazing song like Awaken is just horrible---although Jon Rick and rhythm section is first rate compared to Howes Yes--- I will probably pass on both versions---a curse on both your housesLOL

The band of peace an love should practice what they preach.Angry
