  • Remembering Alan White

    Exactly a year ago today dear Alan White passed away. What a great drummer, who has left a brilliant legacy both with Yes and outside of Yes, an a warm and caring person on top of that.

    Miss you Alan! Here's to you! 🍻

    Such a terrific talent and a stabilizing force in Yes. This guy was one of the greats and he never quite got the recognition that he deserved.

            RIP Alan. He was a Yes institution, and seems to have been loved by all who knew him.

              I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating: Alan’s gift to Yes was giving it something it didn’t know it needed, but treasured eversince:

                  Same here recalling so many shows and some lucky interactions.

                  Truly a wonderful person, who was loved by all.

                  Cheers to you Alan. Thank you

                        The live Endless Dream. Alan not for nothing named it when he was asked around 2004 what the most difficult/complex Yes song ever was for him to have played live.

                            Interesting, gotta add Endless Dream to my memorial playlist.

                              Alan White! Best drummer Yes ever had, and part of the soul of Yes. I miss the dude, though Yes is in good hands with Jay. Alan White was the best!
