Hall of Fame

April 12th, 2017 · Posted by Skuds in Music · No Comments · Music

I have been watching some Youtube clips of Yes getting inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which is a long overdue accolade for them, and a great shame it had to wait until after Chris Squire died.

It is worth doing a search because there is plenty in there for the fans, not least the fact that they appeared as a complete band rather than the two competing bands that are currently on the go. Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee presented the award and then everybody had a bit of a speech, ending up with Rick Wakeman telling some of the filthiest jokes that have probably been heard at this event. They even had Bill Bruford up on stage with them, which was a nice touch.

The band played a couple of songs. Owner of  Lonely Heart had Steve Howe playing a Rickenbacker bass and involved Rick going down into the audience, cape and all, playing his keytar as he went. The other song was Roundabout, of course, with the band joined by Geddy Lee on bass.

Here is the link to Roundabout: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mjm10iXTon4
