I had warned GH about this early on!  This should be interesting to watch!

Oh that's a shame, why do they behave like this??
I'm pretty sure Jon Davison has enough voice and energy to perform with both bands in such an event!

Squire ought to apply for a soap opera scriptwriter job. He'd make a mint.

 Maybe Glass Hammer could bring Susie Bogdanowicz back on board for the cruise.

Maybe Glass Hammer could ask Jon Anderson and play their version of South side of the sky

Glass Hammer should ask Benoit David to sing for them haha

They could also do an album when this Jon Davison guy returns and name it... Re-Union... [obvious troll is obvious]

That would be so ironic.

I feel like it's also partly the band. Not sure why the band is still together anyways.

This sucks, and I don't see how this may hurt Yes at all. But for what they say, it seems it was the Management, not the members of Yes themselves...

I am going on Cruise to the Edge, but because of all of the bands, not just Yes.  In fact I'm looking forward to Steve Hackett more than Yes. In any case I find this to be just stupid!  I thought it was brilliant that JD would front both of his bands.  Urgh.  I'd almost like to see JD tell Yes to take a flying leap.  But I suppose that would be cutting off one's nose to spite one's face...

I'm not even a Glass Hammer fan (don't know their music at all yet); I just find this kind of thing to be ridiculous.

I would be furious if I was on the cruise BUT the statement says that Carl Groves will be returning for the shows. He was the singer on Culture Of Ascent and is as good as Jon Davison so they have found a satisfactory solution to the problem imo.

I really hope this isn't the beginning of the end of Davison's association with Glass Hammer altogether. Although his three albums with them have all been very good, it was finally with `Perilous' that everything really came together and they gelled better than they ever have, releasing their most ambitious and grand album so far.

Its amazing that a band that was at one time the most meaningful music creators to me can become such an outrageous embarrassment to their fans, their colleagues and their legacy. They really should have hung it up 20 years ago with the Union tour, ending on a high note. Every time I think they have hit the bottom they make the news with crap like this. Sad really.

Sadly, if there's enough demand for some more `Dad-rock', Yes will continue to deliver!

I say this tongue-in-cheek, I really don't mind `Fly From Here' all that much, for what it is!

^ I actually enjoyed "Fly From Here" also, it has some good moments.  Agree with Glass Hammer's "Perilous", I think it is their best yet, and I am a Lex Rex fan.
 
Regarding the childish ways that Yes are acting, reminds of an old Carol Burnett spin on soap operas' called "As the Stomach Turns".

I agree!  "Perilous" is a fine effort, better than "Fly From Here."  I wonder if Yes is even playing anything from FFH live with Davison?  

Personally, I was skeptical that two bands could simultaneously share a lead vocalist, due to the rigors of the job!   

However, Davison does have some composing skills, and he's also an excellent bassist, so Yes may be undergoing a metamorphosis before our eyes.  We'll have to see. 

Did anyone else see the US Grammy awards show?  Not much prog at that one, eh?  Ugh!  Dead

I saw Yes this summer with Davison and they did play the "Fly From Here" suite, but no other songs from the album.  It was flawless and Davison was perfect!

Yep, I saw Yes with fellow Archives member Stratcat and we met AtomicCrimsonRush there too (great bloke you are, Scott!) in Melbourne last year, and we could all vouch that Davison was truly suberb with the band!

`Fly From Here' is a perfectly pleasant listen, nothing more, nothing less

(although `Perilous' wipes the floor with it! )
