YES- The YES Album 50th Anniversary- Jon Anderson, Tony Kaye, Steve Howe, Bill Bruford

It is the fiftieth anniversary of The YES Album , a progressive rock touchstone. If the British Invasion bands led by The Beatles and Rolling Stones wanted to be rock'n'roll's second verse after "Be Bop a Lula" and "Maybe Baby", then London's King Crimson, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and YES were determined to be rock's "C" section, the musical bridge which takes the listener somewhere unexpectedly before returning to the familiar refrain.

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 .
