    "Bill Bruford is now in the Band..."

    Okay. nothing verified officially but someone on one of the ARW fan pages on FB has just announced Bill has joined ARW.

    His name is Stuart Halbert and he says he works in the music industry and will announce further news once rehearsals start. I'm calling -------- (and have) because nothing has been announced by Bill or ARW management, but you know how these things take off.

    Remember you heard it here first, folks! ;-)

    And the way it is written - he allegedly might well be in Yes.

    I can see him doing this, no other game in town except retirement. Thats not happening yet. Especially with the opportunity to contribute to new Yes music.
    If true

    Lol. In 2018, *rehearsals will start* without the internet knowing who is in the band. The internet will only know when that useful announcement has been made.

    After rehearsals start.
    It drives me nuts when people online don't know the difference between "your" and "you're".

    There so stupid.

    Re: "Bill Bruford is now in the Band..."

    That would be a very interesting development, but absolutely everything points to this being a big steaming pile. On the other hand, if this Stuart person is familiar with Yes, he would know better than to restart that old rumour. So...maybe this is legit? Maybe they told him it would be an album an a limited number of shows and they can't do it without him, especially now that YesOff have snatched Tony? Nah, I'm writing this off until there's some reliable info. Isn't there a forum member here who's part of their organisation somehow, or is that YesOff? Short username, no avatar. Who am I thinking of? Please report back, whoever you are.

    I checked out his FB page and he definitely mixes with the right sort of Rock stars - Steven Tyler and The Who. Odd thing to put up if no truth to it. Cruel even.

    Re: "Bill Bruford is now in the Band..."

    Oh, wow... that would be something. Still though almost unbelievable. But as I say since years - with Yes everything is possible Anyway... I do believe it only when we have an official confirmation.

    Yeah, but Bills finesse and fine, almost fragile off-beat-playing would cause a great friction with Rabins now raw but as well quite subtle playing.

    Won't happen because they'll have to change their name again.

    "YES" - Music that could make God cry with joy. Either you get it or you don't.

    Looks like this whistleblower is either in road crew or a stage hand. Regardless of the excitement (if true) I can't see it ending well if he's jumped the official announcement from Brian Lane (again, if true).

    Re: "Bill Bruford is now in the Band..."

    I can't see it happening with Bruford supposedly retired from live performing. If this is true, I wonder if Levin is shortly behind him. This would be a big coup for the 50th anniversary if it happens. Maybe this contributed to the lack of news from the YesF camp as it was worked on behind the scenes.

    Bring on BRAWL or Yes Featuring Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, and Rabin.

    Maybe this is the big news for 2018 Rick and Trevor were talking about last fall?

    Wouldn't Bill be expected to side w Steve?... On the other hand, I didn't expect the existing factions in the first place. Sounds like bullsh1t, yet could still happen because it's Yes.

    Would be tight at least for Levin joining in the summer, at June 13th he starts a european tour with King Crimson:
