:) yeah i saw this a while ago there's a great article on Yes and Steve Howe also
Excellent overview of Jon's life and work. Lovely early photo of Jon as a little baby. Really sweet.

'Anderson is also responsible for most of the mystically-themed lyrics and concepts which are part of many Yes releases. These elements are crucial components of the classic Yes sound, but have occasionally alienated some members of the band (most notably Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Alan White, Tony Kaye, Peter Banks, Trevor Rabin, Billy Sherwood, Igor Khoroshev, Trevor Horn, Geoff Downes, Patrick Moraz, and Jon Anderson), contributing to their leaving the group. His influences include Siddhartha, Aretha Franklin, Duffy and Yoda.
Recurring lyrical themes include gentle mass touching, tormatoes, mutant enemies, and craving penetrations.
Jon is the son of popular fast-food promoter Ronald McDonald and model Pamela Anderson. Other famous members of his family include panel-show veteran Clive Anderson, ABBA musician and prominent “B” Benny Andersson.'
