A pioneer of progressive rock, YES has achieved worldwide success with a 47-year history and 21 studio albums. The band is known for their live performances and live shows, as well as their albums, TV and radio shows. The group toured with White on drums and recorded in the USA for the first time in May 1973 in front of a live audience. The best work of this tour was summarized in a three- LP and two CD set of Yessongs, which was released in May 1973. In 120 minutes it covered the entire stage repertoire of the band, played well and became the model for progressive rock live albums. The YES concert tour was one of the most successful of its kind in the history of rock'n'roll. The exception was bebe a exception, as it was conceived as a follow-up project - until the band's first live album, Yessongs, and not as a new album. Speaking about the Royal Affair tour album, which was released in October, Alan White said: 'This is the first time we've released it as a solo album. The guest on the tour was bebe Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy, with Arthur Brown as lead singer for the band's first tour in over a decade. Prior to joining YES, he worked with David Bowie and was also a founding member of 1970s rock band Badger Detective. He joined Badfinger, took Tempus Fugit, and before we went on with this, we saw that he was good with the people of Siberian Chatru. Kaye has also played with many other bands, including current YES member Billy Sherwood and former YES drummer Alan White. London - Born Peter Banks, he entered the progressive rock world with his guitar in the late 1960s and early 1970s, playing with the likes of Badfinger and Badger Detective. In recent years he has been a guest on Billy Sherwood's Prog Collective and has an improvisation group called Harmony & Diversity. In 1999 Steve Howe released a tribute album Tales from Yesterday, which was re-released in 2010 and included a live version of the album's title track as well as a number of other tracks. In 2009, he and Bill Bruford split the group's classical music into an orchestral project called Symphonic Music for Yes, with Jon Anderson providing vocals for two songs. Jon Anderson was born in Accrington, Lancashire, England, in 1944 and has been making music since 1962. He founded YES in 1968 with Chris Squire and was the lead singer of the band through the classical years until his exit in 2008. Yes, but he is also an accomplished solo artist and has worked with artists such as the Greek musician Vangelis. He played his first show with YES in September 1971, replacing Kaye as lead singer after he had played with the band for the first time at the Royal Albert Hall in London in the summer of 1972. Wakeman was a much more flamboyant musician than Kaye, in part because of the number of instruments he used. He used over a dozen instruments, including guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and a variety of other percussion instruments instead of the three keyboards Kaya used, as well as a guitar and piano. The band is often considered one of the most important of the band and they are often presented with their classic repertoire on a tour called "An Evening of Music." The album was supported by a series of live performances at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England, in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Although they could not name Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe, they were able to reach out to fans who submitted their own recordings, which led to an album of the same name. It lasted a total of four years until her last album, "Yes," was released in 1991. After the release of the album Kaye left the band and was briefly replaced by Eddie Jobson, who had worked with Bill Bruford in the group outside the UK. Meanwhile, a new singer was sought and began working with the band's original line-up - Anderson, Wakeman, Howe and Howe, but the ongoing line-up changes were not over. Jobson was no longer with them in the late 1970s, and after Kaya's return he was gone. The album 90125 made it into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time in the UK and US. It was the band's most successful album to date, featuring a stripped-down, modern dance-rock sound the group had never produced before. Rick Wakeman was born in London, England, in 1949 and was awarded a place at the Royal College of Music, but dropped out to play rock music instead. He then began presenting, including as a presenter of the BBC Radio 1 Radio 2 show, and joined a string of acts including the Strawbs, David Bowie and Cat Stevens, before later leaving and joining the show several times. He is not only number one, but also a very productive solo artist, but he has also been seen as part of the band at the Royal Albert Hall in London and in various other places around the world.
