    First time I've seen rancor like this on the NewYesFans. Funny that it should be in a discussion about GEOFF DOWNES. I would have suspected it would center around religion, politics, or the pandemic.

    I’m learning. This is my first and only social media foray. Lol. I’m not innocent either. I posted controversial politico stuff in a couple sections too - politics, and Beatles I think. It was stupid. That does nothing except to cause angst. Not meant for this site. And better left to face to face discussions over a beer or two. I find people are much more apt to finding a common ground when actually talking together!. Too easy for misinterpretation and boldness on the keypad. Maybe cause I’m older and worked in an industry for 33 years where management/union discussion occurred every day. I think I’m comfortable fAce to face. And have no patience for an online personal attack.

    Oh well. Nuff said in the subject. I’m boring myself and everyone. Lol. Water under the bridge now. Thanks for the reply!!

    I've learnt to ignore posts meant to bait only. Saw that original lame post and just scratched my head. You made the obvious callout. Sad but some people get a kick out of causing controversy and then scuttling away.

    All

    I recently sent a nasty response to another member on this thread. Although I honestly feel the original post and personal attack on GD was inappropriate, not humorous, and was appalling in nature, my response was uncalled for and also not appropriate for this wonderful, fun, and enjoyable site.

    I hope I did not offend anyone who may have seen it before it (and the original) was removed. I feel I have made a couple ‘yes friends’ here and I wouldn’t want to ruin that.

    Cheers. Right back at you. Enjoy the real world. Family and friends. and music.

    No lockdowns here, mate. Sydney is open. Beaches packed. Prawns bought. Boosters to come in January.

    (The bogong moth has lost 99.5 % of it's population. It migrates past my old hometown from Queensland to the Australian Alps
    where it spends Summer in caves. It was always a source of protein by the Aboriginals. Cooked and ground into a paste
    like hommous. Numbers lost due to drought and the fires 2 years ago. They heralded summer in Canberra and were famous for hanging around the
    lights of Bruce Stadium where The Mighty Canberra Raiders rugby league team play. They need saving!)

    SAVE THE BOGONG MOTH

    I mean, you're not insane?

    Firstly, I am indeed insane. I label myself fun-crazy. :-) The Mrs. is insane-crazy. ;-)

    What's an emoji? ;-) I am too old old school to use those. In fact Geoffrey adopted my wink at yesfans.com.

    Australia. I really feel sorry for all you good people down there, with the crazy lockdowns we read about here . You do, however, have the right idea with great temperatures during the holidays.

    Happy holidays, and happy everyday, Gilly.

    As a Yes fan for over 50 years, I will not be bullied into "putting a sock in it" by an censorious troll./sock puppet [/QUOTE]

    I apologise for any offence. Was a tactless comment. Like you, I am a Yesfan of similar vintage. That gives us latitude to opine on anything Yes. True. In fact any member is up for criticism and/or mockery for their behaviour. Geoff is definately someone I think I would not agree with IRL on many fronts.

    The wider context of my remark to you Kenny, is that I had just previously seen your post on the thread "which keyboard should each Yes keyboardist play" (sic).
    You only made a cheap crack at Geoff. Excluding even Igor who was arrested for sexual assault. Geoff's crime? He can't do a decent Rachmaninov impression like Rick?

    So I felt that unfair and then the comments above in this thread concerning Geoff's thoughts (which neither of us know) and Geoff's talent. Let's just agree to disagree on the latter. I am Irish so I'm up for craic and robust banter. I have limitless energy for both. But am a lover not a fighter and will self-monitor my posts as to not cause offence.

    Now we know the new joint is here to stay. Haha

    As for Geoff, I don’t wish his playing was like anyone else’s. I think he’s great as a player, and has a great ear for arranging his parts to fit a track. He can also be flashy when needed. The problem with copying Rick’s stuff does not come down to technical ability. It comes down to Rick’s distinctive personality on his instrument. You can be 10x “better” than Rick and still not play his parts like him.

    I have listened to a lot of DBA and have not been impressed. Braide's vocals are average at best.

    I just wish that he had the ability of Rick and the generosity of Francis Monkman.
