Two mainstays of progressive era Yes and one later member are collaborating on a new album and planning to tour. Original lead vocalsit Jon Anderson, keyboard player Rick Wakeman and later era member Trevor Rabin have confirmed album and tour plans. Wakeman indicates that the death of Chris Squire served as the catalyst for getting the three to actually get down to doing something they had been discussing for the past 5 years. Anderson lost his place in Yes to a sound alike vocalist and Wakeman parted company with the group several years before that. Wakeman says he looks forward to the opportunity to develope new songs with Anderson and Rabin ans to '...perform some of the classic material as we feel it should be performed.'
