    "I have a favorite breakfast cereal. It's what we call porridge, but you call it oatmeal. [...] If you want to do it the Steve Howe way, it’s one cup of oatmeal, one cup of water and one cup of milk, and that gives it a nice creamy texture. Don't put sugar in it, on it, or anywhere near the kitchen table." Guitar World, Nov 2011

King Crimson will sound like frickin' Randy Newman next to the new Yes album!!!

    Nah....it's simpler. There was no macrobiotic food (Steve) and no Burger King (Billy) served in the restaurant, so Steve took Billy out for a macrobiotic veggie burger....

    I have to deplore Downes using the term 'asses' when, as a Brit, he really should be saying 'arses'. Unforgivable!
