I am crushed.
 Growing up, Yes was the band that really introduced me to music, in a way to make it a lifelong obsession. I grew up in a classical household and when I first heard Yes it stirred my soul.
 I must have seen them a hundred times. most recently at the Tower last winter.   

I am going to open a good bottle of wine and pull out the albums...John

Me too, John.  I saw them for the first time in Oct. 1972 when they were doing the Close to the Edge tour.  They opened my eyes as to how good bands can be.   

BTW, the Eagles opened for them.  Not so great IMO.  Smiley

With the popularity of mind expanding drugs in the late 60's early 70's, music became something more than just a beat to dance to. People listened more closely and demanded higher quality gear. Groups such as Yes, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Pink Floyd and Moody Blues were at their peak, this era may be over forever.
