    "I believe you make music for the beauty of your soul, your realization of life, and the joy of making music." - Jon Anderson of Yes talks about the spiritual inspirations behind the likes of "And You And I," "Long Distance Runaround" and "Starship Troopers," which Anderson thinks of as his "search for truth and search for an understanding of what God truly is." Anderson also speaks of his return to the band in the 1980s, when Yes became unlikely MTV stars, all thanks to "Owner Of A Lonely Heart": http://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/jon_anderson_of_yes/

    The best guitarist of the earth. No one can play like him...no one. He's real genius. Clapton? Beck? Page? Blackmore? HOWE IS THE TOP.

    One of the best guitar virtuoso I have had the chance to see and hear through the years, with Robert Fripp and Steve Hillage, one of the greatest in prog rock history. I love what he did in music, with Yes or Asia, as well as a solo artist, but I didn't dig his stuff with GTR... too commercial for my taste...
