Renowned for their complex song structures, cosmic lyrical themes and virtuoso musicianship, ever-changing Yes are one of the most enduring and successful bands to emerge from the 70s prog-rock scene. Formed in 1968 by lead vocalist Jon Anderson and bassist Chris Squire, the group’s big break arrived when they were chosen to open for Cream at their Royal Albert Hall farewell show, which led to a residency at London’s Marquee Club and a deal with Atlantic Records. Following their 1969 self-titled debut and 1970 sophomore Time and a Word, the group began to perfect the ambitious prog-rock sound that would become their forte with 1971’s commercial breakthrough, The Yes Album. In the same year, Rick Wakeman, the flamboyant multi-instrumentalist who became famous for performing on an entire bank of synths, pianos and organs, replaced Tony Kaye and alongside Anderson, Squire, guitarist Steve Howe and drummer Bill Bruford, the ultimate Yes line-up was complete. The group then released a string of seminal LPs including Fragile, Close to the Edge and live album Yessongs. However, this incarnation proved to be short lived when Bruford left before the release of double album Tales From Topographic Oceans, and Wakeman, not for the last time, did the same shortly after. The band’s next LP, Relayer, maintained their streak of US Top 10 albums before Wakeman returned for 1977’s Going For The One, a relatively back-to-basics affair which was supported by their most successful North American tour to date. More personnel changes then followed as The Buggles’ Trevor Horn joined the fold for 1980’s suitably-titled Drama, before the group disbanded altogether a year later. However, Squire eventually ended up recruiting so many former bandmates for his new outfit, Cinema, that the Yes name was revived in 1983 for a brand new LP, 90125, which unexpectedly spawned a US chart-topper in the shape of “Owner of a Lonely Heart.” Yes continued to mutate throughout the rest of the decade, and after various legal squabbles temporarily kept the group out of action, most of the key members reunited for a mega-Yes tour in 1991. The band remained a regular touring and recording act throughout the 90s, adding to their discography with the likes of Keys to Ascension, Open Your Eyes and The Ladder, but the majority of the 00s saw the group focus on their back catalog with various reissues and compilations. In 2011, the band recorded their first new studio effort in ten years, Fly From Here, with former Yes tribute band singer Benoit David, and followed it up in 2014 with Heaven and Earth.
