Of course it's Yes. I hated these guys (capes and satin and a lead singer with a 'squeaky' voice) when they were new but somewhere along the way I grew to really appreciate and like them. But to pull off their music live really shows how good they were. All members were killers.

Steve played a lot of pedal steel when I saw them; and it was like, "Aha! That's where that atmospheric sound came from!"
Played it with the 175 hanging on him; then go right back to it, playing all those notes dead on.

Do0d, when I saw them *In The Round* it was musically life changing. I was young and impressionable, but still.

Pretty sure I saw them in London around 2000? Not the original lineup I don’t think, but it was a decent show all the same.

When I was stationed in Subic Bay Philippines used to hang out with the bands that played out in town. There was this guitarist "Roland" who was phenomenal. One day hanging out partying he picked up an acoustic and played this note for note. Great times and memories from the 70's.

I can still remember how proud I was when I finally nailed the intro to Roundabout.

YES.

You forgot singing background vocals too.

Steve Howe...meh. Never liked his stilted, lack of fluidity. Trevor Rabin....now there's a great guitar player!

Squire’s tone and approach really brought the bass out front and a lot of rock and metal players owe him a nod.

Howe’s playing on that Switchmaster is just plain incredible, and his tone so unlike anybody else.

Great band. I was always a fan, but not a fanatic. Saw the version a couple years ago that was Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Trevor Rabin. It was truly a great show, brilliant performance. I thought Trevor Rabin was amazing in his own right. Great guitarist, and a fine singer as well.
