Yes have now been on the rock circuit for an incredible 34 years. Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Rick Wakeman, Chris Squire and Bill Bruford are just some of the star players who helped to make the band one of the greatest-ever names in classic rock. Their turbulent story spans the early days of pub and club gigs, international supergroup status in the heyday of rock, and various line-ups since.
Chris Welch's definitive biography of Yes is once again updated to include the historic return of Rick Wakeman to the classic Yes line up during 2002 and their subsequent highly successful tour of America.
