I may bring out "Can I Play You Something".  Used to love that album and it's been awhile since I've heard it.  Will play it tonight in tribute. Will probably give Two Sides a spin as well, that was one of the great instrumental prog albums of the 70's.

I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

This is sad news.  With all of the members that have passed through the ranks of Yes, is he the first to die?

Please read this interview with Peter, it is very far-reaching and very interesting!  He goes all the way back to his early Yes days, when he shared a flat with Bob Fripp! 


Fascinating fellow, I'm sorry that he never received all the credit he was due.  I highly recommend his most recent solo albums, "Instinct," "Self-Contained" and "Reduction".  I particularly enjoy "Self-Contained," his guitar style approaches that of Steve Vai!  

RIP, Peter, we lost one of the true pioneers when you left us.

Is a very sad news. Although, the replacement of Peter Banks for Steve Howe had been a "upgrade" to Yes music, nobody can deny the talent of Peter Banks, to confirm this is enough a fast review in their subsequent discography (Emperor, Flash and solo). Rest in peace great musician !!!
