For me it is Jon Anderson. It just sounds like a different band without JA.

Jon is the sound of Yes, but Yes west in the 80's sounded like a different band with Anderson--but Drama and FFH sound like Yes to me. I think of Yes when I listen Jon's solo stuff (although I don't like most of it) but it doesn't sound like Yes either--other than his great voice.

Squire, not just the main man but also the one who defined their sound the most to me.  First and foremost, it's that big bass sound that I notice.  I barely take much notice of Anderson except for the wrong reasons but I am sure I am in a minority there.

Same here; When listening to Yes, sometimes I kind of subconsciously "listen past" Jon's squeaking for the sake of overall enjoyment in general, and that voluptuous bass sound in particular. The Fish Schindleria Prematura is no less than 160 seconds of complete gratification, while the other Fish (the Out-of-Water one) is like an ocean of salacious bliss Smile
