I have seen him with Yes several times, and he was at a Steve Hackett concert in Seattle I attended a few years ago. Sad news indeed. Cry

They had just announced the next Yes tour and the article had said that Alan White was not able to participate because of health issues.  I was worried that this news was probably coming, but I am sad to hear of his passing.  Cry

What will become of Yes now? Will they get a drummer that will will make them sound more like a cover band or will they hopefully stop. 

I was shocked to hear of this news of Alan White's death. He s probably playing with John Lennon and Chris Squire now.

I don't think he's been able to drum properly for a while now, Yes have been using a second drummer. I knew he wasn't in the best of health but this is a great shock. RIP Alan, heaven has a great prog rhythm section now.

As a huge long time Yes fan this was very sad to hear. I even met him once and he was very nice and down to earth. RIP Alan.
