YES- 90125- Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Alan White, Tony Kaye

Then something remarkable happened. It resulted in more than eight million copies selling from a musical entity thought to be extinct, but with the songs "It Can Happen","Hold On","Leave It","Changes", and the #1 hit "Owner of a Lonely Heart", YES could rise like a musical phoenix from the ashes of the progressive rock Seventies with the comeback album of the Eighties in "90125".

Yes- Close to the Edge- Jon Anderson, Steve Howe , Rick Wakeman, Bill Bruford

While it took YES barely 18 months to write and record "The Yes Album",  "Fragile" , and "Close to the Edge", it took almost thirty years for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's version of the Warren Commission to deny any conspiracy to bar Yes from induction. But it wasn't soon enough for YES co-founder Chris Squire, who died  prior to the Rock Hall relenting in 2017 .
