Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman Not Rushing New Music

(Prog) Rick Wakeman insists he, Jon Anderson and Trevor Rabin won't be rushed into recording an album now they've reunited for live dates - but he hasn't ruled out presenting new material when they play.

The former Yes colleagues announced their Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman project last month, after years of discussions - and the keyboardist confirms that the 2015 death of Chris Squire urged them into action.

Wakeman tells UCR: "It hit home to us all, certainly to me, that, 'Hold on a minute, we're not immortal.' Anything can happen almost overnight. If there's something you want to do and you feel you have to do, you have to do it. You can't say, 'When we've got a bit of time, we'll do that.' We spoke to each other and went, 'We've got to do this."

While writing material remains a target, Wakeman is cautious about moving too quickly. "Trevor quite rightly said, 'We're not going to rush into all this - it's going to take enough hard work to put a great show together.'

"We can send music backwards and forwards, and start working on bits and pieces. Maybe if we've got a couple of tracks ready to perform, that would be great.

"If not, it's not the end of the world. We've got all these months of working together and living in each others' pockets. If we're going to produce a full album, it's got to be an absolutely cracking album." Read more here.
