    Do we want to Petition to Get YES back together / ONE band

    Well it is YES's 50th anniversary and it is a fantastic achievement
    But i have been mulling this over for quite sometime , do we want to Petition the two bands and managemant to get ONE band back together
    Please understand this thread is done respecting the current situation in all its complexities
    Also I do not want to get us all hung up and in knots about who will be in the band
    But naturally for example , we assume the core players will be there ;
    Anderson , Howe , Wakeman , White , Sherwood , Rabin , Downes ( and the other can guest just to make us happy !! . lol )

    What do you think
    Please can you vote and maybe on behalf of YESFANS , we can do this

    Thank you in Advance
    Geoff

    Voted "No - leave it as it is". I have no desire to see people together on stage who rather not be together on stage. Part, for me at least, of enjoying a live show is seeing the people on stage enjoying what they do. As much as some people rave about the RRHOF performance, I found exactly that sorely lacking, even though the playing was good. But a live show is more than just the music or one could just listen to a recording.

    Let’s put the shoe on the other foot. How would you feel if a group of people petitioned you to get back together with an ex you had fallen out with who had treated you badly?

    I wouldn't want anyone to do something that they don't want to.

    Well Geoff, I know how to play by the rules, so I won't be offering my own. Besides putting the shoe on the other foot is just plain dumb, shoes don't work that way; each is made for a specific foot. ;-) I'm schizophrenic, and so am I; so I voted for "Yes - great idea" because of my own selfish set of wants and "No Geoff, crazy idea, get back to the gardening" because I personally like gardening. So there you have it, my brilliant reasoning for all to enjoy.

    When you put your left shoe on your right foot it’s doesn’t fit very well and when you put your right shoe on your left foot it doesn’t fit very well. YesO is the left foot, ARW is the right foot. Try to fit one into the other and you’ve got a tight, awkward fit either way. Now take your meds bro or I’m calling mom.

    Now you've got me confused. If YesO is the left foot and ARW/YesF is the right foot then who is the damn shoe that is suppose to fit or not? Or are you implying to putva left foot over a right foot or vice versa, in which case I'm even more at loss? And what about socks? Are they involved?

    Maybe you should start going to bed at 9 instead of 10.

    YES is a very positive word

    Even so. For your analogy to work one Yes needs to be a foot and the other a shoe. If they are both feet, then it would actually be an argument against your case, because you need both feet in order to walk properly

    Lou MOLINO. And sure one day there could be a band like that.....they wouldn't be called Yes though...

    YES is a very positive word
    I like your optimism but then there is the reality of current relationship dynamics in the Yes family tree.
