Jon Anderson To Reconnect With Fans For Hall of Fame Induction

When Yes takes the stage early next month for their performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, it will include a familiar voice from the past.

Jon Anderson will sing with the band during the performance section of the program. Anderson was lead singer for the group from 1968 to 2004 except for two short stints away. Since that time, David Benoit (2008 to 2012) and Jon Davison (2012 to today) have been fronting Yes.

Anderson told Billboard that he’ll be there to just have fun. “It’s a family. There’s always animosity. People that you love you don’t always like, and there’s always going to be that. But when you’re celebrating who you truly are, you forget about all that and just get on with meeting each other and seeing each other, and it’s just one of those things. It’s not a problem; We’ll just get together and have fun. Music is a healing force on every level.”

The band will also welcome another guest for the performance, Geddy Lee from Rush. Not only will Lee be inducting the band, but he will join them on bass for Roundabout in place of the late-Chris Squire. Billboard says that they are also considering I’ve Seen All Good People and Owner of a Lonely Heart for their section of the show.
