    Sometimes the shows at the Iridium are streamed. Not sure how they decide which ones get that treatment.

    Maybe they won't stream it if it's also meant for broadcast on that radio station. Could if be broadcast live? Hmm...

    $45 just to hear him TALK? You can't be serious.

    Or $55 to sit closer. I keep waiting for some sort of musical element to be announced but it does seem to be a ticket just to see him being interviewed. He did seem to enjoy the q & a portion of the Yes festival in Philly last year. Maybe he will field questions from the audience as well?

    That's insane. If it was Jon, at least you'd get the secrets of the Universe for your money. But Alan?

    What -- you don't want to hear him talk about what it was like to play on the Imagine sessions? Again?

    with all due respect to the one and only rocksteadYEStalwart and in sound knowledge of his current health conditions … but if there is one member of YES that, of late, is almost painful to listen to when speaking in an interview situation it has to be alan white. that is sobering and scary. i wish him nothing but the best as well as a more than deserved retirement when he wants it.

    Nice to see Alan back on a classic Ludwig kit. Those kits sound great for just about any genre of music.

    After reading that it seemed to me that the interviewer was a genuine fan and I realized that it's been a while since I saw anything disparaging about Yes in Rolling Stone. Which is crazy because it wasn't that long ago when that was so NOT the case. All I can guess is that RS must have realized somewhere along the way that their readership actually like bands like Yes and they don't want to piss them off!

    Well I love the man... met him more than once, he is quite the gentleman. A great drummer in his day... and I have seen the best in the last 40 plus years and sad to say that hearing him speak about his history might be the best thing he can offer us... it is substantial!! I'm sure of one thing he will make it entertaining!
