“I am excited to be a part of “A Musical Journey: Together in Peace” project collaborating with hundreds of musicians worldwide. In a divided nation and a world of unrest, music can be a unifying force feeding our souls and nourishing our spirits. We need to celebrate our diversity with individual expression and welcome the cultural strengths amongst us.” –Alan White

I’m eager to be on the road with the band but also need to ensure my recovery... Read More

It has been harder than I can say to put thoughts to words—to express the sense of loss I feel upon the passing of my cherished friend and band mate, Chris Squire.I am without one of the most important, most loved people in my life. I always called him “Christopher”; it was his formal name and a term of endearment that I hope conveyed my respect and affection for the man who was always a gentle but strong leader; a steadfast rock of my existence. Partnered together for forty-three years as the complicated rhythm section of YES, throughout the years and... Read More
