YES: No, Jon Did Not Leave
Yes bassist Chris Squire says the door is always open for singer Jon Anderson to return.
Yes bassist Chris Squire says the door is always open for singer Jon Anderson -- as if it were Anderson's decision to leave. Squire says, "That’s been the history anyway of the relationship with Jon and [former keyboardist] Rick Wakeman. They’ve been in the band, they’ve been out of the band and back in again. So it’s not impossible to say that we might do something in the future." Anderson was not available for comment.
Squire, Steve Howe and Alan White decided not to wait for Anderson a few years back when he was medically unable to tour. Now they're working with their second Anderson sound-alike, Jon Davison, while Anderson records and tours as a solo act. He occasionally working with Wakeman, who says it is not Yes without Anderson. Squire is the only member of the band to have played in every incarnation.
