    Trevor Rabin, Jon Davison and Geoff Downes perform Imagine

    No matter what you think or feel about the various Yes lineups, there’s some good feeling coming from this one.

    Just think about it; "our" Alan White not only played on Yes classics, but also on a true world renowned classic! And the message of the songs means conquering all differences, which makes it so great to see and hear Trevor, Jon and Geoff together on it.

      Good Alan vibes there for sure! Nice to see his memory triumph over divisions. Rabin, Downes, Davison, Schellen

        When I watched that live I didn't realize it was Rabin singing with Davison. Lovely rendition of the song.

        Hmmm, maybe Jon D can guest on Trevor's solo album?

            I really like Jon’s voice in that lower register. Never liked the song, but this made me appreciate it given Alan’s participation. Was also fun to watch live streamed. Long, but fun night.

              It was good to see Trevor and Geoff sharing a stage given all of the (sometimes harsh) back and forth that transpired between YesO and ARW.

                Yep. Another cool moment was when they all jammed together at the Trevor Horn Tribute. That moment gave me hope one day maybe they'd all do something cool like a residency. Which Squire fancied for their 50th. But without ambassador Squire, it never came together obviously... But I really enjoyed seeing the 2 sing together here. Positive vibrations for sure

                  The Trevor Horn Tribute was a great event. Erik, you’re spot on regarding Chris being the ambassador. It’s really too bad that Steve, Jon, Rick and whoever else might want to participate, can’t give it the old college try and produce one more great Yes album.

                    The ego's are just too big and offset everything without Chris around to say" hey you knuckle heads lets get on with it". Steve is finally the king of Yes, Jon wants too much money and has been unfair in the past, Rabin really doesn't give a sh!t and want to do his own thing. But I imagine Rick would be game, but has to sift through all that BS... If they could only show up for the music and close the book gracefully with as undliuted and authentic as possible finale. Anderson, Howe, Rabin, Wakeman, Kaye, Levin, and Steve and Trevor's sons on drums. Maybe using both sons would bring them together!? While were at that thought, bring in Deborah and Oliver too ... Fun to dream. But something like that would be sweet! Just 1 song. Nobody in the studio together, just file sharing. How hard would that be ! LOL It's just too fractured and no Ambassador Squire. Yes will fizzle into the sunset in a fractured diluted manner apparently...

                      I doubt things would be much different if Chris was still around than they are today; maybe a few shows with Jon, Rick , or Trevor guesting and that's it. Perhaps a little less bad blood at the HOF, because I also doubt there would have been an ARW if Chris had survived his illness.

                        I know as a fact Chris wanted to get as many willing members past and present together for a residency for their 50th. Who knows what might have happened after that..........?

                        Perhaps after having to all be around each other for a string of shows might have just sent them back to their corners, happily. LOL

                          If Rick and Trevor couldn’t work with Jon long-term, I don’t know how anyone could imagine Chris and Steve working with him when they had such a bad working relationship. I think Chris humored fan interest in a reunion but it was never likely to happen.

                            It was to be a 1 time residency celebrating the 50th. Not a studio album, tour, or line up. A special event, possibly recorded live. But who knows who would have been in the band after such an event..? I know Chris really wanted to work with Rabin again and asked him a few times over the years. He was also kicking the idea around about a Yes with Hackett! So many possibilities, but the cards landed where they did unfortunately for some, and fortunately for others.

                              I wish we lived in the world where Anderson, Howe, Wakeman, Rabin etc. didn’t let their stupid egos completely f*ck up Yes’ 50th anniversary, but here we are.
