Update: We received some follow up information and it turns out that during the interview Jon was talking about the time frame when he recovered from his illness in 2007 and asked the band then if he could rejoin, he wasn't speaking about earlier this year when Yes let their singer go. Anderson continues to focus on his solo career. Here is the original article from our news partner Rock News Desk:

(Rock News Desk) Jon Anderson offered to return to Yes after they sacked his replacement last month and he's lambasted the prog rock outfit he co-founded for letting fans down in favour of the pursuit of money, adding they're not interested in making new music.

Yes sacked Anderson in 2008 and he maintains they did it because he was too ill to tour. Tribute artist Benoit David took his place but in February he revealed he'd been dismissed without being told, also because he was ill.

"I've told them that since I an healthy again that I would get back with them," Anderson tells the Dallas Observer. "I told them that i wanted to create new music, but they don't want to do that. They just want to go on the road and make money. They don't care for the integrity of the band.

"I feel they have let a lot of fans down they're just in it for the money." more on this story
