Saw them back in the mid 70's kinda old Yes fan. Well I have been just sorta watching all the "new" Yes line-up stuff evolve and have been fairly quiet about the whole thing. I wanted to wait and see. I've waited long enough... I have listened to all the clips from the current tour on Youtube. Sorry, but I just don't think David is cutting it. Yes, he's very talented with a great voice but it's just not working. He is trying to hard be Jon He fakes it pretty well but he doesn't feel it like Jon. He just DOES it. Watch some of the stuff Jon does and you can see him feel it. And that draws you in with him. Next thing you know you're feeling it too. It's an amazing experience that make Yes concerts the special gift that they are. David's work looks just an act and leaves me feeling kinda cheated. The emotions of Yes music seem to get lost with him. I feel for him. It's a hell of a tough act to follow. I'm now of the belief that no one could pull it off...so they shouldn't try. Wait for Jon! Sorry to sound so negative here but this has just been bugging the hell out of me. I know, Jon has a major ego and all but after listening to all these clips, the choice is obvious. Jon MUST be in Yes or there just is no Yes anymore. I will NOT be supporting this tour. I just hope they can all get over this current crisis, Jon gets healthy and they tour together again. By the way, I love all the Yes epics but Awaken is just blowing me away right now. What an amazing song! Some great live versions on Youtube. All except the one from the "Union Tour" with Trevor Rabin. He needed to just sit that song out. Ok, thanks for letting me rant. Take Care! Hurry back Jon!!! On my Yes video, Steve Howe states that Trevor Rabin had a tendency to play in parts of a song where he wasn't supposed to. Steve said that if there wasn't a guitar part played in the original studio version, there was a reason for it. Which video was that? (I don't have any Yes documentaries yet, and I would like one.)
