By far one of the longest lasting and most successful of the 70s progressive rock groups, Yes were formed in London in 1968 by bassist Chris Squire and singer Jon Anderson. They first achieved success in the 1970s with a progressive, art and symphonic style of rock music. They are distinguished by their use of mystical and cosmic lyrics, live stage sets and lengthy compositions, often with complex instrumental and vocal arrangements. Nine of their 21 studio albums have reached the top ten in either the UK or US, with two reaching number one in the UK. They have sold 13.5 million certified units in the US. Nineteen people in total have been a part of the band’s line up, including Swiss, South African, American, Russian, and Canadian members. The band’s most recent line up consists of Jon Davison (vocals), Steve Howe (guitar), Billy Sherwood (bass), Geoff Downes (keyboards) and Alan White (drums). The 1970s saw Yes release the albums widely viewed as their creative peak, The Yes Album, Fragile (both in 1971), Close to the Edge (1972), Tales from Topographic Oceans (1973), Relayer (1974) and Going for the One (1977). The band toured almost constantly between 1996 and 2004, including both 30th and 35th anniversary shows, also releasing the albums Keys to Ascension (1996), Keys to Ascension 2 (1997), Open Your Eyes (1997), The Ladder (1999) and Magnification (2001) during this period.
