Yes Frontman Jon Anderson Speaks with ClassicRockForever
The YES 40th Anniversary tour was cancelled this past summer after Jon Anderson was put out of commission and ordered to rest for six months due to a respiratory ailment. A few weeks later it was announced that there would be a tour after all. The "In The Present" tour would be kicking off in November –fronted by a singer who hailed from a YES tribute band – and discovered on YouTube. So we would have our chance to see YES in concert. Right? Well, not according to "that voice". Soon after the new lineup for the tour was announced, Jon Anderson had an announcement of his own: "This is not YES on tour". He checked in with ClassicRockForever this week to help clear up some of the confusion and shed some light on the future.
ClassicRockForever (CRF) It's been a couple of months since the news about your health – do you have any updates that you'd like to share?
Jon Anderson (JA) As for my health now, I truly feel reborn, it's gonna take some months before I can do shows, but my dreams are coming true. I have so many blessings, my wonderful Angel Janee, my beautiful kids, friends and family and fans alike. Their words of love and kindness have touched me beyond belief - and I am so thankful to the Stanford Hospital here in Palo Alto for helping me through this part of my life journey and of course Divine Mother for shining Her light always. - Read the full interview!
