LINK: Move yourself with Yes man Steve Howe

Steve Howe has been wowing audiences as a guitarist for progressive rock band Yes since 1970. He picked up his first guitar at the age of 12. It was a Christmas present from his parents. The self-taught guitar enthusiast from England went on to have multiple hits with Yes, which released its first album in 1971 and he continues to create solo albums and teach guitar workshops. Now 65 years old, Howe shows no signs of laying his Gibson down anytime soon.  

On their current tour, Howe and his fellow Yes members are perfoming 1971's The Yes Album, 1972's Close to the Edge and 1977's Going for the One live. For the group’s casino concerts, the band will be presenting two albums live (The Yes Album and Close To The Edge) due to time restraints.

“Some people only have a few hit songs. We’re lucky to have many popular albums,” Howe said while from Los Angeles. “To perform an album in its entirety presents a concept on stage. It gives us a new feeling. Some years ago, I said to the guys ‘Why not?”

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.
