As Chris Squire and Yes retake to the road for another round of North American tour dates, the co-founding bass-playing leader of the band reflects on a season of change.
Since the release of 2011′s well-received Fly From Here, the legendary prog rock band’s first album in a decade, Yes has transitioned to another frontman. Benoit David had joined in 2008, when longtime vocalist Jon Anderson was unavailable to tour, and would over the next three years perform in more than 200 concerts as well as both the Fly From Here and In The Present: Live From Lyon albums.
But then breathing problems surfaced in late 2011 for the Canadian singer — who, ironically had replaced Anderson after similar health issues arose. Yes eventually announced Jon Davison, of the Yes-influenced American prog outfit Glass Hammer, as the group’s newest singer then continued an ongoing tour this year into Australia, New Zealand, Japan and now, the U.S.
