JON ANDERSON of YES at Times Square
Type: Music & Concerts
Jon Anderson has been the lead singer of Yes, one of the most long-lived and successful rock acts in history, for more than four decades (give or take a few respites when the drama got too thick). Perhaps more than any other element in this progressive rock flagship, it is Anderson's vocals that instantly identify what you're hearing as Yes music - a complex, giddy, positive amalgamation of rock's fire and classical music's grace. Anderson was the author and a major creative influence behind the series of many complex epics produced by Yes - songs like "Close to the Edge," "Awaken," and especially "The Gates of Delirium." Additionally, Anderson co-authored the group's biggest hits, including "I've Seen All Good People," Roundabout," and "Owner of a Lonely Heart."
