    Hmmm, didn't this happen over two years ago? "Trivial" doesn't adequately portray how inconsequential this is... But this is Progressive Ears, after all...
    Man you guys take awfully seriously a bunch of pampered, spoiled twenty and thirty something year old jocks earning millions of dollars to play a game running up and down a field. Why do you care so much about these guys to the point of arguing with each other. Do you think they care an iota about you?

    I play bass in my Allman Brothers tribute band. I play an Eve Iona, made in Scotland and an Alembic Spoiler. No one has ever complained. Of course we all do shoot heroin for authenticity.

    the real failure was Steve Howe trying to play the bassline of OOALH. Geddy would have nailed it.

    Most important thread ever.

    I thought both Howe and Lee did well playing bass. Geddy was a huge Yes fan so I'm sure it was a blast for him to play. I do think Sherwood should have at least played on Owner and let Howe share guitar duties with Rabin. Rabin could have taken his usual solo and Howe could have taken the solo at the end.

    I thought Steve was great on "Owner," and proved what a team player he is. (He played a Rick, by the way)

    The problem must be that Geddy is the only one hitting the right notes.

    But it's good you got it off your chest man.

    I saw Squire play that Rick at a small venue with the Benoit David version of Yes. His sound was never so clear to me, and even if Geddy played every note the way Steve would have, at that Yes tribute, the Geddy bass sounded fat. Squire chose Sherman to carry the Yes bass mantle. As for OOALH, I didn’t listen because I hate that song, being as burnt out as Follow You Follow Me. Obviously, Geddy was the choice of the HOF establishment which has shown over and over again, it’s about music money, not music.

    If you feel the RnRHoF is all about the money, why would you care what a band being inducted into such an evil institution sounded like during a two song set that nobody who really knows and loves Yes would ever judge them by?

    Billy Sherman will not be pleased by this logical phallacy!

    P.S. Geddy sounded great.

    I knew Hemsley was a prog fan, didn't know he played bass.

    ^ I'd settle for 20, but that's non-negotiable.

    Wow... This is my new favorite Yes thread.

    I thought Geddy looked and behaved himself humbly when he played. - trying to stay low key and all that. Geddy gets killer "rick" tones out of his Jazz Bass all the time, so much so that in the 80's I bought a Rick because I loved his Limelight tone. only to discover that he played his Jazz on Limelight. It's funny in a sick kind of way, I sold my '72 Jazz to buy the Rick. One of many Stupid, stupid deals I have made over the years.

    Geddy was a great choice for Yes in the RRHOF. IMO Yes and Rush both make the RRHOF almost worth visiting one day. I used to drive by it almost every day when I was contracting in Findlay, Ohio for 6 months back in 2003. I never had even a slight interest in paying to go into that cursed place, when most of the bands I loved at the time were purposefully excluded, because one individual a-hole didn't think they were cool enough. It still pisses me off when I think about it.

    It is funny that Geddy gives bass players who use a pick such grief, but yet agreed to play for Squire, who was a TOTAL pick guy. Only Geddy could pull off that tone using his finger - he calls it his "noisy Bastaad" - just in case some of you have been living under a rock since beyond the lighted stage was released.

    I wonder if we will ever see Geddy playing out again. Wasn't the RRHOF his latest Forray on to the live stage?
    I got nothin'

    ...avoiding any implication that I have ever entertained a cognizant thought.

    You know who played Rick? Jon. But then he went off on a solo tour.

    Having just bought a Geddy Lee signature Jazz bass I'm getting the most Lee/Squire tone I've ever been able to achieve.
