  2. Yes has always been a great band, over the years all musicians who have had the pleasure to play with them has participated in their progression. But unfortunately, it has changed these last few years, Jon isn't there anymore and it shows. They still call themselves Yes, but it isn't the same, really. I think that the three remaining members of the band are Steve, Chris and Alan and whoever plays with them, Oliver Wakeman was a member and they threw him out, Benoit David also even though they said he had respiratory problems but I doubt it really. Who will be next to leave ? Too bad, because I think that Fly from here is a great album but...
    Maybe it would be time for them to retire, just like Pink Floyd and Genesis did...
