ORIGINAL POST

Guitarist Steve....and Howe!
Posted:Tuesday, 04/08/2014 at 03:04am by Greg Easterling
We paid tribute to Steve Howe this am. It's his birthday. Steve, the longtime guitarist for Yes and also Asia. Actually Steve was not the original Yes guitar player....that was Peter Banks I believe but Howe has been with Yes so long he might as well be the original. Steve is actually pictured on the second Yes record, Time and A Word but didn't fully debut with the band until The Yes Album. He has that soaring, transcendent sound in his playing that can literally lift you off the ground...and your spirits too! This morning we put the needle down on Side 1 of the 1972 Yes classic Close To The Edge, an album the band will be featuring this summer on tour. We listened to the full title track in four parts.
