Elias interview[edit]

There's a good interview with Jonathan Elias about his take on the making of the album here:

I don't have time to integrate the information today, but I hope someone might take a crack at it. — Catherine\talk 22:59, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

This is an important interview. I am proposing a link to it in the text. I really don't see a good way to incorporate material in this interview without more discussion of the controversy that surrounded this album and his role as producer. I like the text as it is, which simply states the facts, and therefore think an external link is the best way to handle this. If I do not hear any concerns in the next few days, I will insert it. —C.

Double drumming[edit]

Do the drummers play at the same time, i.e. double drumming? If so, Yes can be added to the list there. Rigadoun (talk) 20:17, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure there isn't a single song where both White and Bruford play at the same time. They did so during the accompanying tour, though. -/- Warren 20:29, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
No - the White/Squire rhythm section played only on the YesWest songs, and the Levin/Bruford/Cast of a thousand overdubbers played on the ABWH songs. Scott1329m 15:26, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

List of musical works in unusual time signatures[edit]

I think "Miracle of Life" qualifies for that list, but I'm still trying to figure out the real time signature of the intro. It could simply be syncopal. JFW | T@lk 11:21, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

I will have to re-listen - it's in something like 15/8 or 11/8 - there is an odd beat in it. But I think they're playing the same riff later on in the song in the usual rock tempo. For Trevor, it's not really unusual - he does this in a lot of his songs, having a lead-in in a strange time signature and the rest of the song in a normal tempo. Because it's just the lead-in riff, like "Changes" (and the Latin section of "I'm Running", if I remmeber right), it may not qualify - does the song have to be in an unusual time signature the whole time?

I know that this song has been written about me. After talking LSD a number of times, God has revealed himself to me and I now know what my destiny is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:31, 22 November 2008 (UTC) Who are you and what makes you think this? I think the same way as you do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:29, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe[edit]

User:Drmies edit comment: "Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe not part of the Yes canon, apparently." You shouldn't give my opinion [1] too much weight here. I formed it based on the status quo of the article, and my reasoning that A,B,W&H released work under a name specifically different from "Yes". I'm certainly no expert on what music critics and historians might say about it. Maybe the point does warrant discussion here on the talk page. Willondon (talk) 03:21, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
