LINK: Steve Howe’s Doubt Over Future Yes Albums

Steve Howe of Yes and Asia
Big question: Steve Howe
Yes guitarist Steve Howe doesn’t know whether the band will record any more albums – because he’s not sure if fans want to hear new music.
They released Fly From Here in 2011, but Howe admits that when it comes to thinking about a follow-up, “it’s something that I kind of fight myself about.”
He tells the Dallas Observer: “You take bands like Aerosmith and the Rolling Stones – bands bigger than anything I’ve been in. They make new records and nobody cares. The people want to hear Satisfaction.
“I think The Who had one of the most disappointing results when they put out that last album. It was practically ignored – and they are The Who.
“That goes with Yes as well – people want to hear Close To The Edge. We love it too. We love the new music but it doesn’t have the familiarity.”

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.
