In an interview with Rolling Stone, the legendary voice of YES, Jon Anderson said he is “very open” to a reunion.
“I’m very open to it. It’s been 50 years now. You think something has got to happen. To me, a great album has to be made. That’s what I think.
“I don’t know how it’s going to be made, but the final Yes event should happen. I’ve talked to a couple of people about it and they get it. I really want to do this.
“I’ve even written eight songs for the record that I’m thinking would work with a full orchestra and a choir.”
Asked if guitarist Steve Howe is into this idea, Jon replied:
“I don’t know. Maybe he’ll read this article and say yes or no. I don’t know.”
Currently, Yes is split into two parts: one in the hands of Steve Howe and another with the trio Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman and Trevor Rabin.
Yes are an English progressive rock band formed in London in 1968 by singer Jon Anderson, bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Peter Banks, keyboardist Tony Kaye, and drummer Bill Bruford. The band has undergone numerous formations throughout its history; nineteen musicians have been full-time members.
Since June 2015, it has consisted of guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes, singer Jon Davison, and bassist Billy Sherwood, with no remaining founding members. Yes have explored several musical styles over the years, and are most notably regarded as progressive rock pioneers.
