Friday was a busy news day in our fandom world, and so now for the other things of note...
It was announced by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame that Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson of Rush will be giving the induction speech for Yes at the ceremony on April 7th. It has been noted previously by fans Geddy was Chris Squire's choice for that role and Geddy has also spoken of his admiration of Yes and the band's influence on Rush in various interviews over the years. The link below provides further information regarding the ceremony and how one can purchase tickets for the event.
Yes Music Podcast posted a new episode yesterday featuring an interview with the AMAZING Lee Pomeroy, who confirms that the Dynamic Duo will in fact be participating on the recording sessions for new music from ARW, which is very good news indeed.
The interview itself begins around the 27:05 mark in the recording.
This gives me an excuse to post one of my favorite performance photos of Lee (courtesy of Steve Kaminsky), which is a great illustration of his sunny disposition onstage. As one fan noted a while back, Lee is a true joy to behold.
