Union Live Band Member Bios

Jon Anderson

Poet. Visionary. Leader. Jon Anderson brings an enthusiasm and vision to his music and to his career that cannot be suppressed. The eternal optimist, there seems to be nothing Jon Anderson cannot do. When Jon speaks of YES and of making music, he speaks of dreams. But for Jon Anderson, today’s dream can become tomorrow’s reality. “This Union is something that I’ve felt very strongly about for some time. I had the pleasure to work with both groups, in the eighties – ABWH, and the 90125 band, as I’ll call them. To me, they were both ‘YES‘ anyway. The dream to put everybody together to do a tour is well timed. It’s going to be a very important year for many facets of our understanding of life. I think that it’s very important to be able to get up there and perform good music. It’s very important that we all fly under the same flag. It will be good for YES to get under one banner, and wave the YES flag in the nineties.
UNIONLIVEanderson
YES is so much a part of Jon Anderson. And while the singer enjoys stretching out and collaborating with friends like Vangelis and Jonathan Elias (where the two celebrated a shared passion for Native American culture), there always remains that unbreakable bond with the band that he co-founded with Chris Squire in 1968.

I always feel that I’ll be playing YES music” he says.

Jon’s creative energy extends beyond music as well. A talented visual artist, Jon Anderson enjoys painting in his spare time. He has donated several watercolours to charity auctions to help raise money for the fight against AIDS. And of course, there is his wife Jenny, and their family, Deborah, Damion and Jade.

With a voice of almost unimaginable clarity and strength, his gift continues to astound concert audiences year after year. For Jon Anderson, this tour is a celebration. “This Union is a breakthrough for everyone. It’s a breakthrough for the band and for the fans who stuck loyally with a group through all the ins and outs of it all.

Bill Bruford

UNIONLIVEbruford
Bill Bruford grew up with jazz. As an amateur drummer in the 1960s and after a handful of lessons from Lou Pocock of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, he began his professional career in 1968. He was a guiding light in the so-called British “Art Rock” movement, touring internationally with YES and King Crimson from 1968-1974. There then followed several years observing and participating in the music processes of, among others, Gong, National Health, Genesis and UK until Bill felt ready to write and perform his own music with his own band, Bruford, recording four albums from 1978-1980.
It was, however, the reconstituted King Crimson of 1980-1984 that provided the vehicle for his revolutionary use of the electronics in developing the melodic side of percussion. Following an interim two year, two album stint improvising on acoustic piano and drums with Patrick Moraz. Bruford formed his current electro-acoustic jazz group, Earthworks, in 1986, with Django Bates and Iain Ballamy, specifically to continue his work from the drum set, but now in a jazz context.

The group’s third album “All Heaven Broke Loose” will be released on EG Records in September 1991. Bill has also made time to recently record and/or tour with Kazumi Watanabe, David Torn, The New Percussion Group of Amsterdam, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Akira Inque and Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, amongst others.

Bill Bruford lives in Surrey hills with his wife Carolyn, three children and a tortoise.

Steve Howe

The respect which Steve Howe commands as a musician is awesome. His achievements as a player are all the more impressive when combined with the performance of his own songs and material. Indeed as a writer and especially with Jon Anderson, Steve has often been the creative force behind the music. Steve prefers to list himself under the heading of “guitarist,” although his work with YES, Asia, GTR, and ABWH bears witness to the fact that it’s impossible to cram him into any one musical pigeonhole.

While his music first took roots amidst the late 50’s/60’s influences that sparked off just about everybody in British rock, it subsequently developed in a number of different directions. Steve’s total fascination with the guitar and its seemingly endless possibilities is underscored by the fluid, unique approach to rock that he’s made his own.

Whether working with the group or developing his own solo projects, what Steve plays is modern guitar – drawing on influences, concepts and techniques often removed from the flows of mainstream rock and expanding on them with taste and style.

Steve Howe has often appeared as a guest guitarist and just completed his forthcoming solo album – Turbulence.

UNIONLIVEhowe

Besides his involvement in the creation of new musical styles and arrangements with the other members of YES, he has played an important part in the visual side of the project with his friend, Roger Dean. His spirit of adventure is paramount.

Tony Kaye

UNIONLIVEkaye
Original YES keyboard play Tony Kaye has been called one of the great gentlemen of rock. As YES‘ first keyboard payer, Tony helped YES rise to the top. Tony played on Yes, the band’s self titled debut, Time And A Word, and The Yes Album, before leaving the band for other musical pursuits.

Music began at an early age for Tony. He began taking piano lessons at age three, and developed a love of classical music. By the age of seventeen or eighteen, he decided that maybe classical music wasn’t “it” after all. He went to art school, and acquired a taste for rock and roll. Eventually, he wound up in a band called the Federals, who backed Roy Orbison on a European tour. Shortly thereafter, as psychedelia was just hitting big, Tony bounced from band to band for a time, unable to really get comfortable with groups with names like Yellow Passion Loaf. Eventually, he found himself hanging out around the London club scene, at places like The Marquee and La Chasse. There, he hooked up with Jon Anderson and Chris Squire. His organ sound became one of YES‘ earliest trademarks.

After a successful american tour for The Yes Album, Tony left YES to pursue other musical directions. He rejoined the ‘new’ YES twelve years later for 90125, the band’s multi-platinum comeback album. Tony has been behind the ivory ever since. So much a part of the new YES sound, Tony co-wrote songs such as “Hearts,” “Rhythm of Love,” “Big Generator,” “Shoot High Aim Low,” “Almost Like Love,” “Final Eyes” and “I’m Running.”

His keyboard playing is sleek and modern, blending beautifully with today’s YES sound.

Trevor Rabin

Trevor Rabin redefined the YES sound upon joining the group in 1983 for the band’s multi-platinum comeback release 90125. Rabin penned number one hit, “Owner of a Lonely Heart” (the band’s only single to reach #1). The Trevor Rabin infused YES captured the hearts of old fans and brought in legions of new ones.

Trevor Rabin flies on the fretboard of his guitar with energy and precision. When this is combined with his technical expertise, the resulting energy can reach pyrotechnic proportions.

Trevor was born in South Africa, and grew up listening to the local “Township” sounds hat have grown increasingly popular amongst contemporary popular artists like Paul Simon. Recently, Trevor has tapped into the heritage himself, on his recent solo album, Can’t Look Away. “These styles just kind of happened onto the record. Once they did, I made sure they were incorporated. I always felt that it was part of who I am. It’s in my blood.” Trevor finds working within YES a very stimulating experience. “Within the YES context, I have a lot of freedom. I write a lot of material, and am quite encouraged by Chris and the guys in the band.

UNIONLIVErabin
Trevor’s dynamic playing style has lead to comparisons to guitar legends such as Les Paul and Jimi Hendrix. His ability to write catchy ‘hooks’ has critics likening him to Paul McCartney. How does Trevor see himself? “Well, first and foremost I think of myself as a guitarist/songwriter. I enjoy singing my songs very much. I am fundamentally a guitarist and songwriter. As far as comparison, gosh, I don’t know! It’s a great compliment to hear my name in the same sentence as Jimi Hendrix or Les Paul“, he says modestly.

Trevor continues to balance many projects. He has been working with ex-Supertramp leader Roger Hodgson, is writing material for his own solo album, and continues to develop his already considerable production skills. Trevor Rabin barely has enough time to sleep, much less time for leisure, as he works tirelessly at pushing the boundaries of modern rock guitar. “Time is the enemy. Sleep is such a waste of time!,” he laughs. “But a wonderful waste of time.

Chris Squire

UNIONLIVEsquire
Co-founder Chris Squire created a trademarked bass sound which is one of YES‘ most distinguishing features. His innovative style transformed the bass from a percussive instrument at the back of the mix to a dominant force – a voice that expresses all the emotions contained within the expansive range of YES music. In redesigning the role the bassist to that of a “lead” player, Squire has influenced scores of young musicians.

Chris Squire forms more that just the musical foundation of the YES legacy as well. The “keeper of the flame”, Chris Squire has played on every YES album since the band was born, in 1968. Squire has ridden out each of the changes that YES has gone through over the years. It is his relentless quest for perfection that has kept YES music alive, and constantly in the process of reinventing itself.

After the Drama tour, it was Chris Squire who maintained the most visible contact with the YES spirit. He and Alan White released a single, Run With The Fox, which served as a reminder to YES‘ legions of fans, that the YES spirit was alive and well, even while the band was on hiatus. And it was Chris Squire who brought YES together in the early eighties for what would become the band’s mega-smash comeback album, 90125. “When we got back together in 1982, I had the feeling that Tony, Alan and I could work closely with Trevor Rabin and evolve YES into something very special. As soon as I heard Trevor’s song “Owner of a Lonely Heart” I knew this was the kind of music that YES should be making,” Squire says. Now, in the nineties, Chris Squire has again helped to assemble the troops for what promises to be the YES tour of all time.

Rick Wakeman

Keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman joined YES in August, 1971 for the recording of Fragile, completing the lineup often referred to as the “classic YES” band of Anderson, Squire, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe. A young man in his early twenties, Rick Wakeman was already one of the most sought after musicians of the day when he joined YES. Rick’s majestic and richly orchestrated sound helped to define progressive rock in the seventies. Having left the group after Tales From Topographic Oceans, Rick Wakeman rejoined YES for the recording of Going for the One. On Going for the One, Rick turned in one of the greatest performances of his career on the monumental epic, “Awaken“. He stayed on for the stellar “In The Round” tours, and for the release of Tormato.

The Rick Wakeman you may meet on the street does not seem like the same person we’ve grown accustomed to seeing up there on stage. That Rick Wakeman trains his glance to a piercing stare, as his eyes strain to focus on his blurring fingers as they fly across the keys below. The Rick you’ll meet on the street will greet you with eyes that are dancing with laughter and mischief. As adept with the one-liner as he is on the keyboards, Rick Wakeman possesses a sense of humour and warmth as far reaching as his musical talent.

Recently, Rick released a new collection of piano solos, entitled Night Airs – the third in a trilogy which includes Country Airs and Sea Airs, and a very personal album called In The Beginning. He is joined on In The Beginning by his wife, actress Nina Carter.

UNIONLIVEwakeman

Alan White

UNIONLIVEwhite
Alan White earned a reputation as one of rock’s greatest premier drummers early in his career. On of the most sought after session musicians of the time, White played with the likes of John Lennon, Ginger Baker’s Airforce, and George Harrison before joining YES in 1972, just three days before the start of their American Tour. Chris Squire and Jon Anderson approached Alan immediately after he finished a tour with Joe Cocker. Chris and Jon made him an offer he could not refuse. “We met in (long time YES producer) Eddie Offord’s apartment. They said ‘Listen. YOU’RE JOINING THE BAND OR WE’LL THROW YOU OUT OF THIS THIRD STORY WINDOW!’

Few drummers could have stepped into the role as sure-footedly as Alan White did. Much of the tour is documented on the three record set, Yessongs, which features Alan on nearly every track, and in the film of the same name. For nearly twenty years, Alan White has been at the very centre of YES music. “YES is a fulcrum. People have joined, and departed, since I’ve been with the band. It’s an on-going situation. Now, you might say that people have come back to the nest, as it were. I feel that this Union is a combination of that, along with a view of future that could be ahead for YES for a lot of different members of the band.

Alan’s broad spectrum of styles, from subtle, intricate percussion, to explosive, limitless raw energy, have played an integral part in creating the YES sound. His drive and dedication of the idea of YES have played a major role in keeping the music alive, and forward reaching. He sees the coming together of the two camps as a very positive move.

There is a lot of give and take, but there’s a great deal of unity also – as the album title says, a Union. I think that when we get to the stage, it will really kick in. You’re going to hear a lot of great music from everyone involved. I always believe in the band. It’s an on-going thing. I see it as a group with a future. I don’t see things dissipating at all. I think the band still has a VISION, and a need to see beyond the horizon to create new music“.

YOURS IS NO DISGRACE

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face
Caesars Palace, morning glory, silly human race
On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place
If the summer change to winter, yours is no disgrace

Battleships confide in me and tell me where you are
Shining, flying, purple wolfhound, show me where you are
Lost in summer, morning winter, travel very far
Lost in musing circumstances, that’s just where you are

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face
Caesars Palace, morning glory, silly human, silly human race
On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place
If the summer change to winter, yours is no
Yours is no disgrace, yours is no disgrace, yours is no disgrace

Death defying, mutilated armies scatter the earth
Crawling out of dirty holes, their morals, their morals disappear, yeah

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face
Caesars Palace, morning glory, silly human, silly human, silly human race
On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place
If the summer change to winter, yours is no
Yours is no disgrace, yours is no disgrace, yours is no disgrace

Battleships confide in me and tell me where you are
Shining, flying, purple wolfhound, show me where you are
Lost in summer, morning winter, travel very far
Lost in musing circumstances, that’s just where you are

RHYTHM OF LOVE

Innocence no answer
To your breaking heart
If the situation
Sometimes falls apart
Then in this ecstasy
Your charms are frozen
No emotion falling through your arms

Morning, daydream, time still growing shorter
Take me over lead me to the water
To the rhythm of love
The rhythm of love
The rhythm of love

Why should I escort you
To your secret needs
Climbing up your ladder
I keep falling down
Anyway will do
Anyone will do
When you dance to your darkest tune
Surrounded
As you crawl around the room
Night time fever burning till you’re higher
Take me over lead me through the fire
The rhythm of love
To the rhythm of love
The rhythm of love
To the rhythm of love

Morning daydream midnight fever
Morning daydream midnight fever
Inhibitions keep you from your point of view
Information needing to confuse
In this situation I have found you
In the rhythm of
Morning daydream midnight fever
Morning daydream midnight fever
Rhythm of love
Rhythm of love
To the rhythm of love
Rhythm of love

HEART OF THE SUNRISE

Love comes to you and you follow
Lose one on to the heart of the sunrise
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with its arms
All around me

Lost on a wave and then after
Dream on on to the heart of the sunrise
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with so many around me
Lost in the city

Lost in their eyes as you hurry by
Counting the broken ties they decide
Love comes to you and then after
Dream on on to the heart of the sunrise
Lost on a wave that you’re dreaming
Dram on on to the heart of the sunrise
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with its arms all around
Me
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with so many around me
I feel lost in the city

Lost in their eyes as you hurry by
Counting the broken ties they decided

Straight light moving and removing
SHARPNESS of the colour sun shine
Straight light searching all the meanings
Of the song
Long last treatment of the telling that
Relates to all the words sung
Dreamer easy in the chair that really fits
You

Love comes to you and then after
Dream on on to the heart of the sunrise
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the sun with its arms all around
Me
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with so many around me
I feel lost in the city

MAKE IT EASY/OWNER OF A LONELY HEART

MAKE IT EASY

 

Why the eagle flies
When the wind blows in his eyes
And he goes no where just to feel good

You don’t know the reason
Our love is like a season
Breaking down and building up again

Why you hold me up
When I feel like falling down
Is the love you have that makes me feel good

You make it easy
Take it slow
Well, I was hurtin inside and you gave me a second chance

You take it easy
When you let it go
I was hurtin inside

Time rides all alone
When you’re left back on your own
But I know you’re always there to lean on

Look beyond the
And you’ll find my love in check
It’s all the love I have
Love I give to you

You make it easy
Take it slow
Well, I was hurtin inside and you gave me a second chance

You take it easy
When you let it go
I was hurtin inside

Why the eagle flies
When the wind blows in his eyes
And he goes no where just to feel good

Time rides all alone
When you’re left back on your own
But I know you’re always there to lean on

You don’t know the reasons
Our love is like the seasons
Breaking down and building up again

You make it easy
Take it slow
Well, I was hurtin inside and you gave me a second chance

You take it easy
When you let it go
I was hurtin inside

You make it easy
Take it slow
Well, I was hurtin inside and you gave me a second chance

You take it easy
When you let it go
I was hurtin inside

 

OWNER OF A LONELY HEART

 

Move yourself
You always live your life
Never thinking of the future
Prove yourself
You are the move you make
Take your chances win or loser

See yourself
You are the steps you take
You and you – and that’s the only way

Shake – shake yourself
You’re every move you make
So the story goes

Owner of a lonely heart
Owner of a lonely heart
Much better than – a
Owner of a broken heart
Owner of a lonely heart

Say – you don’t want to chance it
You’ve been hurt so before

Watch it now
The eagle in the sky
How he dancin’ one and only
You – lose yourself
No not for pity’s sake
There’s no real reason to be lonely
Be yourself
Give your free will a chance
You’ve got to want to succeed

Owner of a lonely heart
Owner of a lonely heart
Much better than – a
Owner of a broken heart
Owner of a lonely heart

Owner of a lonely heart

After my own decision
They confused me so Owner of a lonely heart
My love said never question your will at all
In the end you’ve got to go
Look before you leap Owner of a lonely heart
And don’t you hesitate at all – no no

Owner of a lonely heart
Owner of a lonely heart
Much better than – a
Owner of a broken heart
Owner of a lonely heart
(repeat)

Owner of a lonely heart

Sooner or later each conclusion
Will decide the lonely heart Owner of a lonely heart
It will excite it will delight
It will give a better start Owner of a lonely heart

Don’t deceive your free will at all
Don’t deceive your free will at all Owner of a lonely heart
Don’t deceive your free will at all
Just receive it

SAVING MY HEART FOR YOU

In the street where we live there’s a place called desire
There’s a stone-cold intrusion of mad man’s fire
But he leaves when the lust and desire released
And you’re left with an empty room in peace

Saving my heart for you, you do what you want to do
There’s a place in my heart for you, this time I’m watching you
Till the blood in my veins run dry, I’ll be there to testify
There’s a place in my heart for you

I’ve been lost in the maze of emotional confound
I believe that you knew that our faith was secure
How you kept up your smile with a cool disposition
Are you stocking the fire with a new sense of reason

Saving my heart for you, you do what you want to do
There’s a place in my heart for you, this time I’m watching you
Till the blood in my veins run dry, I’ll be there to testify
There’s a place in my heart for you

You tell me to take it easy, but it’s not my style
There’s something around the corner, it’ll pass you by
I wanna hold you closer to connect my fortunes
I wanna take you higher, taking off like we did before

Saving my heart for you, you do what you want to do
There’s a place in my heart for you, this time I’m watching you
Till the blood in my veins run dry, I’ll be there to testify
There’s a place in my heart for you

Saving my heart for you
There’s a place in my heart for you
There’s a place in my heart for you

Saving my heart for you, you do what you want to do
There’s a place in my heart for you, this time I’m watching you
Till the blood in my veins run dry, I’ll be there to testify

Saving my heart for you, you do what you want to do
There’s a place in my heart for you, this time I’m watching you
Till the blood in my veins run dry, I’ll be there to testify

Saving my heart for you, you do what you want to do
There’s a place in my heart for you, this time I’m watching you

AWAKEN

High vibration go on
to the sun, oh let my heart dreaming
past a mortal as me.
Where can I be?

Wish the sun to stand still.
Reaching out to touch our own being
Past a mortal as we
Here we can be
We can be here,
be here now.
Here we can be.

AWAKEN SUNS HIGH STREAM THRU AWAKEN
GENTLE STRONG DREAMS BEGIN HERE AWAKEN
MASS MASS
TOUCH STAR, SONG, AGE, LESS, TOUCHING

Workings of man
set to ply out historical life.
Reregaining the flower of the fruit of his tree.
All awakening, all restoring you.

Workings of man, crying out from the fires set aflame.
By his blindness to see that the warmth of his being
is promised for his seeing, his reaching so clearly.

Workings of man
driven far from the path.
Rereleased in inhibitions
So that all is left for you
all is left for you
all is left for you
all this left for you now.

Master of things. Master of light.
Songs cast alight on you. All pure chance.
Hark thru dark ties. As exists cross divided.
That tunnel us out of sane existence. In all encircling mode.
In challenge as direct. Oh closely guided plan.
As eyes see young stars assemble. Awaken in our heart.

Master of soul. Master of time.
Set to touch. Setting sail.
All impenetrable youth. Over all of our lands.
Ask away. And as we look.
That thought be contact. Forever closer.
With all thats clear. Shall we now bid.
Be honest with yourself. Farewell, farewell.
Theres no doubt, no doubt.

High vibration go on
to the sun, oh let my heart dreaming
past a mortal as me.
Where can I be?

Wish the sun to stand still.
Reaching out to touch our own being
Past a mortal as we
Here we can be
We can be here.

Like the time I ran away
and turned around
and you were standing close to me.

Like the time I ran away
and turned around
and you were standing close to me.

ROUNDABOUT

I’ll be the round about
The words will make you out ‘n’ out
You change the day your way
Call it morning driving thru the sound and
In and out the valley

The music dance and sing
They make the children really ring
I spend the day your way
Call it morning driving thru the sound and
In and out the valley

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky and they
Stand there
One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see
You
Ten true summers we’ll be there and
Laughing too
Twenty four before my love you’ll see I’ll be
There with you

I will remember you
Your silhouette will charge the view
Of distance atmosphere
Call it morning driving thru the sound and
Even in the valley

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky and they
Stand there
One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see
You
Ten true summers we’ll be there and
Laughing too
Twenty four before my love you’ll see I’ll be
There with you

Along the drifting cloud the eagle searching
Down on the land
Catching the swirling wind the sailor sees
The rim of the land
The eagle’s dancing wings create as weather
Spins out of hand
Go closer hold the land feel partly no more
Than grains of sand
We stand to lose all time a thousand answers
By in our hand
Nex to your deeper fears we stand
Surrounded by a million years

I’ll be the roundabout
The words will make you out ‘n’ out
I’ll be the roundabout
The words will make you out ‘n’ out

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky and they
Stand there
One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see
You
Ten true summers we’ll be there and
Laughing too
Twenty four before my love you’ll see I’ll be
There with you

I’ll be the roundabout
The words will make you out ‘n’ out
I spend the day your way
Call it morning driving thru the sound and
In and out the valley

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky and they
Stand there
One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see
You
Ten true summers we’ll be there and
Laughing too
Twenty four before my love you’ll see I’ll be
There with you
