Rick Wakeman has changed his tune. After announcing through his web site that he would not participate in the Yes induction into the Rock Hall Of Fame on April 7 under any circumstances, circumstances changed enough to get him to reconsider. What prompted the pivot was an agreement by the Hall to add a special tribute to the late Chris Squire to the evening's schedule. The keyboard player now says he has "...agreed to attend the induction ceremony in New York to stand proudly with my fellow band mates Jon and Trevor and also watch Chris's wife Scottie collect this well desered award on his behalf." Wakeman adds, "I also hope this move to acknowledge members of bands who sadly did not live to receive their own honour, means they can get them posthumously in the future."
