What happens when you put together a group of classically trained and very talented musicians? You get Yes.

 

Yes was, at its high water mark, Jon Anderson(vocals), Chris Howe(lead guitar), Chris Squire(bass), Rick Wakeman(keyboards) and Alan White(percussion).

In 1971 Yes was flying high. Their breakthrough album the Yes Album was gathering fame and awards for the band. When they released Fragile in November, they became one of the biggest acts in arena rock.

Yes filled a rare niche in the rock world. Their music was tagged as progressive or art rock and compared with Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Yes simply refused to cataloged or categorized; their sound was completely unique and superbly executed by exceptionally talented musicians.

 

 

 

Yes has enjoyed a long association with the artist Roger Dean :>>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Dean_%28artist%29
