Jon Anderson's back!
« on: 14/06/2009 23:28:11 »
I was very sad last year when Yes singer Jon Anderson had to pull out of the band's 40th Anniversary Tour with respiratory problems. He's an incredibly talented singer, writer and entertainer and the main reason to see Yes in concert.

I was also concerned, listening to material he had performed and recorded leading up to his illness, that he just didn't sound right - kind of strained and tired.

Anyway, he took a year off and has just returned to performing and announced a tour, including some UK dates.

I chanced upon some YouTube material from a concert he gave last week in California and he's clearly back with a vengence. He sounds (and looks) so much better.

I arranged to meet up with Jon Anderson when he was playing in Northampton. We recorded an interview, which I'll release when I have a little more time to cut it together and check it with him (I'd like to interleave some music from the concert, but I'll need to rights-clear it first).

Anyway, here's a bunch of us post-interview...
