So, in 1970, Peter Banks left the band. He left right after they finished Time and a Word. He was subsequently replaced by Steve Howe.
Now, Steve officially became their guitarist. They needed a cover photo for the US version of the album and Steve ended up on the cover, even though he didn't play a single note on the album. He also looked a bit uncomfortable on the cover. Poor guy. And he had to be in the videos for the album they were making. So, he froze in the "Then" video, got chased around with the rest of the guys by a nun in the "Everydays" video and almost got killed riding in a car in the "No Opportunity" video. I suppose that was his initiation into the band.
Oh, and Happy Birthday to Jon Davison!! I hope the new album will be awesome (and I know it will with him behind the wheel)
Look, it's my header photo. :]
I just think this jacket of Steve's is so awesome. He usually wears it without a shirt on. ;]
Late 70s, I think. Alan's got the creep-o mustache.
One of my favorite pictures.
Rick - *bored*
Bill - "Hey, I'm gonna leave and join King Crimson, eh?"
Chris - "Say that again and I'll hit you with one of my bass guitars"
Jon - *turning away, so as not to see the ensuing fight*
Steve - *has no comment*
Ah, the photoshop.
All I know is that the guy next to Chris is Brian Lane, a manager and I can't remember who's next to Jon.
Aw, Chris, you ruined it! Tony was smiling and you ruined it!
The God of the Gibson. (I like that one)
His hair is still long and he still kicks a**!
A little more Drama? *no one gets it*
Playing not one, but two guitars! Now, all you need is to play four guitars and you'll have Rick Nielsen beat!
Geoff Downes on the keyboards!!
I think Jon Davison is a wonderful addition to the band, I really do.
"Awaken" at Ruth Eckerd hall. The three necker is out!
Even more Drama.
Bill Bruford, the best darn drummer the Progressive Rock world has ever seen.
