Jon Anderson has slammed his former band Yes for the way they got rid of him and hes none too impressed with their new albumeither!
Taling to Rolling Stone, the man who fronted Yes until 2008, when he was replaced by Benoit David, claims he only found out that he was no longer in the bandfrom a friend.
They didnt tell me anything. They were just off and running. But what can you do? I was pissed off in the beginning, but then you say, Oh well, the boys want to go on tour and be rock & rollers. Let them to do it. Now people come see me and Im suddenly 30 years younger!
And he doesnt think the current Yes albumWe Can Fly is up to much.
I wasnt really convinced. The new singer is singinggood, but it sounded a bit dated to me. Also, the production wasnt as good as I expected. Theyve got a great producer with Trevor Horn, so what the hell are you doing?
Anderson has been doing his own solo stuff recently, as well as working with old yes pal Rick Wakeman. And there are plans for the pair to reunite with Trevor Rabin, another one-time Yes colleague, on a new project, the details of which should be annoumced soon.
