Jon's health problem is manageable after an operation--he still can't keep up a full time pace and does a concert here and there--he also asked to be let in Yes earlier this year and would re-jion with Davidson And Downes in the band and was rejected---I like FFH---I don't like mock prog like Glass Hammer---Besides Keys and Mag many albums led by Jon have been mediocre at best---but it seems that a special event which includes Jon A may happen if it can be arranged---Personally I think  most of solo Jon A sucks---he is no great solo artist and has always needed Howe Squire, Bruford, White, Wakeman and Moraz to co-create the masterpieces (or even Vangelis)---a Garbriel or Hackett he is not. I thiink both Drama and FFH are both proper Yes albums and do not include Jon A. Are they in the same league as 70's Yes---? no but not too many prog giants created masterpieces after the 70's.

The last 3 Glass Hammer albums are better then anything Yes have released since Talk. Yes are very lucky to have Davison.

I want Jon Anderson back but that is not facing the reality of age and illness as sad as that makes me--he's fragile and not up to what these boys are going to do until they drop.
  
Is Jon Anderson ill?  I haven't heard about this.

No, I don't believe he is presently ill...I saw him in his "Voice of Yes" show a few years ago, and he was animated, happy and in top form! 

However, he did speak to us about Yes, and said that the others wanted to "be rockers," i.e. tour and play extensively.  I am sure that Jon, having had a bad run with his serious respiratory illness, just doesn't think that running around, playing casinos, cruise ships etc. would be all that good for him. 

Also, the band hasn't invited him back, which is a separate issue.  

I'd like to start a petition to keep Jon OUT of Yes!  Yes has degenerated into a parody of their former selves IMHO, Jon could do much better on his own or with close friends.  

Personally, he can keep producing new material like this as long as he wants to!   Check it out if you've never heard it!

It was Rick Wakeman that said he saw Yes as being akin to a city symphony in that members will constantly be changing and that in 50 years (from the time of the interview) there would still be a Yes, just different, younger guys.
Jon Anderson has fulfilled his purpose in Yes.

I forgot about that other Canadian embarassment. I hope that punk wastes all his money and has to take his Ferrari to the pawn shop and ends up on skid row. I actually think that Annie could have done it. But she was a little on the softer side. It would be like having Maggie Reilly in Yes.Even though Jon sounded like a chick sometimes his vocals were powerful. I wonder what Yes would sound like with Jennie Haan? Nah that wouldn't have worked. Check out these videos :

Justin Bieber would be even more embarrassing!  Ugh!  

Annie Haslam recently waxed poetic about how she'd enjoy singing in Yes, I say "bring it on!"

And do we need another Yes release since they haven't made a decent lp since Going For the One..?
Unhappy
 
 

Drama
Talk
Magnification

all decent imo
 
 
Drama has some decent tracks that capture that Yes sound and feel but Talk (Endless Dream is too long and not that good...) and Mag just don't have much to offer...imo.
