Yes Rock Hall Jam With Geddy Lee Video Released


(hennemusic) Rush bassist Geddy Lee joined Yes for a performance of their 1971 classic, "Roundabout", at the band's induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in New York on April 7, and professional video of the collaboration has surfaced online.

After welcoming Yes to the Cleveland-based institution alongside Rush bandmate Alex Lifeson, Lee stepped in to handle bass duties on the tune in place of the late Chris Squire - news that was leaked by singer Jon Anderson in early March and quickly shot down by both Rush's management and the Rock Hall in an attempt to keep the appearance a surprise.

"My great, great pleasure to induct and then get to play with one of my all-time favorite bands," said Lee afterwards. "Long overdue and so well deserved."

Footage of the Rush bassist's appearance with Yes follows HBO's broadcast of the event, which saw the progressive rock pioneers honored as part of the Class of 2017 alongside Pearl Jam, Journey, Electric Light Orchestra, Joan Baez and Tupac Shakur. Watch the video and read more here.
