Yes' Rick Wakeman Will Now Attend Hall Of Fame Induction

Rick Wakeman, the former Yes keyboardist, has now decided that he will attend the upcoming induction ceremony for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. He had released a statement on his official site earlier this week stating that he would not attend, but has had a change of heart after the Hall announced that it will pay special tribute to Yes bass player and founding member Chris Squire.

Wakeman has now stated on his official site that, "I am very pleased to announce that as the Hall of Fame have now agreed to present Chris Squire's wife with a posthumous award acknowledging his massive contribution to Yes, I have agreed to attend the induction ceremony in New York to both stand proudly with my fellow bandmates Jon [Anderson] and Trevor [Rabin] and also to watch Chris's wife, Scottie, collect this well deserved award on his behalf."

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.
