Look, I know a couple months ago, I said Cheap Trick was the best band ever. Well, I lied. (Maybe, not at that time, but it's not the truth anymore) The best band in the world - the World - is YES!!! The greatest Progressive Rock band ever.
So, the best band ever gets the picture-with-fun-stuff treatment. I only have, like, 500 pictures of this band (and a good portion of them are of Steve Howe).
Anyway, time to have some fun, as it turns out I only have 5 more days of freedom until I have to go back to school. Anyway...
Yes in 1973. At least Chris is smiling somewhat. (He doesn't do that very often in pictures)
Chris Squire (bass) - Jon Anderson (vocals) - Alan White (drums) [With his creepy mustache]- Patrick Moraz (keyboards) - Steve Howe (guitar)
1980, the Drama era. One of the only times, minus recently where Jon Anderson was not in the band. Trevor Horn of the Buggles replaced him. Geoff Downes, also of the Buggles replaced Rick Wakeman on the keyboards.
Ah, Steve Howe, doing what he does best.
The group just hanging out. Chris looks like he wants to kill the photographer with a bat full of nails.
1972. Jon looks like he wants Steve to hurry up with his solo. You do not hurry Steve Howe's solo! It's beautiful, especially if played on that lap steel guitar.
Steve Howe in the 90s. God, I love this man.
The original Yes lineup in 1969. Peter Banks (RIP) on the far left was their guitarist. Tony Kaye, next to him, was their keyboardist until 1971.
I love the randomnimity of this one. Peter's expression is great. He has no idea what's going on either.
More from the early days. Jon's jacket looks really warm and fuzzy.
I almost melted upon first seeing this picture of Steve. He was so cute in the 70s!!
1983 - the 90125 era. Tony came back on the keyboards and next to Chris is Trevor Rabin (needless to say, he's not my favorite of their guitarists - I don't know why).
Asia in 1982. Carl Palmer, John Wetton, Steve Howe and Geoff Downes.
I love this picture for many reasons.
1. Bill's face.
2. Chris looks really tall.
3. This is Rick Wakeman's car, I presume. It's nice.
4. Jon gets to sit on top of the car.
5. Steve's pose says "b***h, I'm fabulous". XD
Augh, why he must be so cute!?
Tomorrow from the late 60s with Steve Howe!
