Why Yes Is Saying No To Reunion Idea

(Classic Rock) Yes bassist Chris Squire admits one of the reasons they haven't invited original singer Jon Anderson back into the band is that his health issues could limit their ability to make money.

The prog giants hired Benoit David in 2008 after Anderson suffered a near-fatal respiratory condition. The frontman insists they didn't tell him he'd been dismissed.

Earlier this year David experienced his own health problems. He says he discovered Jon Davidson had been given his job when he read it in a magazine. But Squire suggests there was more to the lineup change than just health matters. He tells Rolling Stone: "He started to get a little wobbly onstage. I thought he was having a cold or had gotten sick on the road that happens all the time. But in Benoit's case it seemed to not be getting better. We toured Europe after that and once again he started to go a little soft."
