Yes profile



Yes are an English rock band formed in 1968 by bass guitarist Chris Squire and singer Jon Anderson.

Yes first achieved success in the early 1970s with a progressive rock style of music, in which they combined art, pop, and symphonic style of rock music. Their breakthrough album was 1971's Fragile. They are distinguished by their use of mystical and cosmic lyrics, elaborate live stage sets, and lengthy songs, often with complex instrumental and vocal arrangements. Nine of their twenty studio albums have reached the top ten in either the UK or US, with two reaching number one in their native UK. The band remained obscure to mainstream audiences until it dabbled in dance-rock music with the release of the 1983 song "Owner of a Lonely Heart", from the album 90125.

They have sold 13.5 million certified units in the US. The band's most recent line-up (since February 2012) consists of singer Jon Davison, guitarist Steve Howe, bass guitarist Chris Squire, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and drummer Alan White.
