For a peace loving hippie, he had quite a ruthless streak, as Peter Banks was soon to find out. And yet, the songs he delivered showed his class. The future direction of Yes, is all wrapped up in Then:



Kaye on bass and Squire on keyboard in that video, no?

Anyway, I love it. Anderson's singing is thrilling at times.
