Close to the Edge: The Story of Yes
One of the greatest names in classic rock, Yes have been on the 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 take the band to incredible heights.
Their turbulent story spans the early days of pub and club gigs, international super group status in the heyday of rock, and various line-ups since.
Chris Welch's definitive biography has been 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.
