Meeting Jon Anderson!


Scratch another one off the bucket list. Yes! After decades of being a Yes fan, I finally got to meet Jon Anderson! It took a while, but here we are. He was unbelievably nice and even shook my hand – unlike a certain guitar player from Yes who shall remain nameless (Steve Howe).  I even got a hug! I told him that I’d been waiting for over 4o years to hear “Olias of Sunhillow” performed live.  And he said, “So have I!” The concert was amazing. He’s still got it.

For those of you who are fans, here was the set list:


Walk on: Ocean Song (pre-recorded)
Owner of a Lonely Heart
Yours Is No Disgrace
State of Independence
Makes Me Happy
Your Move/I’ve Seen All Good People
Flight of the Moorglade
Sweet Dreams
To The Runner
Long Distance Runaround
First Born Leaders
1000 Hands (Come Up)
Starship Trooper (incorporating Solid Space)
Encore: Roundabout
