    Very Journey like visuals. No mention of YES but Marillion, Hackett and Big Big Train make an appealin' lineup. Flower Kings.

    Saw this pop up in my email and I'm definitely not surprised Steve & Co are taking a pass. Good to see Adrian Belew on the list though!

      I believe Gryphon are on board too.
      Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
      Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

        Guitarist Neal Schon has accused the Cruise to the Edge prog rock festival at sea of ripping off the artwork for Journey's classic 1981 album, Escape.

        Just a few days ago, the lineup for the 2024 edition of the festival cruise was revealed in a promotional flyer that also featured a not-so-subtle nod to the Escape cover. The original artwork features a scarab-like space ship bursting out from a shattered planet and, in the Cruise to the Edge poster, that scarab ship has been replaced by a cruise ship which is flying outward from, yes, a shattered orb resembling a planet.

        The imagery caught the ire of Schon, however, and he vented his frustration on Twitter, declaring, "What the fuck do people think? That your [sic] not going to see this? It's a blatant rip off."

          Wow. A clever homage that, yes, is based on Journey's cover but updatin' it with a cruise ship? Hmmm. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? Is it stealin' from Brand Journey?

          So no band can walk it's 4 members across a pedestrian crossing? No floatin' rocks ala James Cameron? Appropriation V copyright violation?

          "M'lord, I refer to the precedent of Dean versus Cameron."

            Neal Schon thinks everyone is always trying to steal Journey from him. It is obviously a homage, and it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me since the cruise has nothing to do with Journey, but it isn’t some kind of copyright infringement.

              Is there any chance we'll get a "Cruise To The Edge" sailing again "with" YES onboard???

                Doubtful. May have to do with the trouble of getting insured in some place. If it is a health issue, a cruise may not be best place for the band.
                Not on Yes' payroll.
