New Yes Album...
« on: March 05, 2011, 04:38:09 PM »
Will be called "Fly From Here" according to Chris Squire and is named after the main track (re working of the Drama tour track maybe?).

Apparently due in July. Trevor Horn & Geoff Downes involved too :?

Sounds like it will be a Drama style recording.

Blimey - not really sure what to make of this. Having sworn with great regret that Yes was finished for me, along comes something which just might (stress: might) reawaken my interest.

That is, the live version of "We Can Fly From Here" which is on "The Word Is Live" is pretty damn good and, unlike many I realise, I've always had plenty of time for Drama.

But, lest I get way, way ahead of myself here, let's not forget that Drama was released more than 30 years ago, and even Horn is over 60. And he won't even be the singer, any more than Jon Anderson will.

I need to start taking my anti-sentimentality pills ...  ;)

Which, I'm led to believe, is "We Can Fly From Here" the track that never made it on the Drama album but was played on the Drama Tour and is on the live album "The Word is Live".

Ah well, I'm seeing them in Cambridge in November, for old times' sake, and will reserve judgement.

And so the soap opera continues ...

Quite what one is supposed to make of this picture, I don't know: I suspect that Mr David and Mr White are wondering quite how they've ended up at a meeting of the Women's Institute ...  8-)

LOL
One of them looks like the coach-driver and the rest just look like they are glad to be out for the day.

It's the "Dream Team".


Like in the Michael Keaton film, but less funny (if that's possible).

Of course, I should say that each one of them has more musical talent in one strand of hair than I have so I'm only taking the haddock.  :D
