LINK: Yes: New Studio Album In 2013, Not With Jon Anderson

Prog-rock giants Yes say they may have a new album, with their latest new singer Jon Davison, as soon as next year. That would be just two years after their last album, which featured their last singer, Benoit David.

If you haven’t kept track with the continuing saga of Yes, here’s a primer: in 2008, the band replaced longtime singer Jon Anderson with Benoit David, who used to sing in a Yes tribute band called Close To The Edge. That version of the band released the first new Yes album in a decade in 2011, Fly From Here. Further confusing things, the album was produced by yet another former Yes singer, Trevor Horn (who is more well known as the former singer of The Buggles).

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
