Yes - 9
So, in 1971, Yes released the Yes Album. It was the album that defined their sound. They also started to experiment with longer songs, songs upwards of 9 minutes. That's how long "Your is no Disgrace" is. That song is fricking amazing! I listened to it once and found myself playing the beginning and rewinding it to hear Steve's guitar solo over and over again. At Ruth Eckerd Hall, the three songs I fell in love with (Starship Trooper, Perpetual Change, and Yours is No Disgrace) were all from this album. I'm also really happy that Steve got his song "Clap" on the album. He wrote the song in honour of his son Dylan's birth in 1969.

And the first person to tell me it's "THE Clap" gets kicked in the head! [And you Yesfans will know what I am referring to] And if you don't get it, here it is -
Kick You in the Head

Here be GTR. A supergroup of sorts made of Steve Howe, Steve Hackett, Jonathan Mover, Phil Spalding, and Max Bacon. This album is a bunch of unreleased demos from the band, some of which resurfaced on Steve Howe's solo albums, or Steve Hackett's, or their singer Max Bacon's solo albums.

There's a cute little green Yes logo for you!

Geoffry Downes. A great keyboardist. Can't wait for the new Yes and Asia albums and we might even get a new Buggles album. So, Geoff's busy this year!

The Relayer days.

Someone on Yesfans took picture of Asia in 2010 and Steve stuck his tongue out at her. xd

If you do not agree that this man is the best guitarist ever, then leave. (I'm joking. Please stay)

They had to take a 20 minute intermission between The Yes Album and Going for the One. [At Ruth Eckerd hall] You didn't expect them to play for three hours straight did you? It was during the intermission that my Dad and I ran into our friend Timmy, who lives out in the Disney (so, we never really get to see him). When we came back inside, the only person who had changed outfits was Steve. He put on a blue jacket, instead of the brown one.

They all look so wonderfully happy here! blaugh
User Image
They're all wearing sunglasses, expect for Steve. That is Oliver Wakeman (son of Rick) over on the left. And why is their singer always so short!? (Jon Davison's not, but...)
User Image
Geoffy! I understand come people find him cute...I suppose so....but Steve still has him beat by a mile!
User Image
The original bunch looking over some grass. "Taller than the grass sees". [That's line from "Going For the One"] See!? Now Jon's the tall one!
User Image
You don't want to know the original size of this photo. It's huge. First off, I love Jon's jacket and I want one. Second, everyone looks soooo cool here! Looking at all this stuff is making me more and more excited for the new album!! Hurry up and get here July!
