  Jon Anderson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Anderson left school at the age of fifteen, and went through a series of jobs including working as a farm hand, a lorry driver, and a milkman.
Anderson is also responsible for most of the mystically-themed lyrics and concepts which are part of many Yes releases.
Anderson was a smoker in the 1960s and 70s, preferring Benson and Hedges cigarettes.

So, the only Anderson still in the band by 1965 when they cut their first single was Jon (technically still John at that time).
Anderson's role in the group was close to coming to an end for a time, though.
Anderson remarked that with his voice on the songs it would be Yes.

 Yes
Although the composition of the band has changed over the years, founding members Jon Anderson and Chris Squire may be considered the core of the band.
Anderson performed in all but one album while Squire performed on all official Yes albums.
The resulting band called Cinema (Squire, White, Kaye, and Rabin) showed Anderson some of their new music, with the result that Anderson joined the band and it was renamed Yes.

Wakeman's third attempt at an instrumental concept album was a relative flop, failing to go gold unlike its predecessors, but at least rising well into the Top 40 (it was his last record to do so in the U.S.).
Wakeman later made a ton of movie soundtracks I won't detail; this one is worth mentioning because it sold strongly in the U.K. and remains a fan favorite.
Anything Anderson puts his name on is bound to be pretentious: his lyrics are feel-good drivel and self-righteous political pap (the Midnight Oil ripoff "Birthright"), four of the nine tracks are broken into named movements, several tunes are snooty day-glow pop ("Quartet"), and there's a lot of shrill, quasi-classical, ELP-like synth bombast courtesty of Wakeman.

Anderson's stay in Greece in the summer of 1988 can be considered a turning point in his career since it coincided with a growing realisation that the way forward was not a return (both musically and emotionally) to Los Angeles.
Wakeman also revealed that one of the reasons to join the project was the frustration Anderson uttered on the current Yes-music.
As he told SI Magazine in September 1989, Anderson had received tapes with various ideas from the various members (he also mentioned Wakeman, but I doubt that because the album is unlike anything Wakeman was writing at that moment) and compiled a musical framework from that material.

Anderson's world music influences are also apparent, even at this early stage, with lots of exotice percussion work throughout (especially on "Qoquaq En Transic"), helped no doubt by Anderson's decision to handle all the instrumentation himself.
Howe and Wakeman in particular at times appear to be fighting a battle with each other to see who can play the most notes or who can play louder, and this gets annoying after a while.
The liner notes credit all the songwriting to the entire band, but Howe, often the most distinguishible member of the band, is notably absent here, and his contributions almost sound forced, as if he was given a song and instructed to play something over it for the sake of having Steve Howe on it.

Rick Wakeman: The Six Wives of Henry VIII / Journey to the Center of the Earth / The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
Bill Bruford shows off his array of electronic percussion, Rick Wakeman does his little synth and piano stuff, guest bassist Jeff Berlin sits in the background, Steve Howe is Steve Howe, and Jon Anderson sings like he always sings.
Wakeman's masterful use of his synthesizers introduced the unbridled energy and overall effectiveness of the synthesizer as a bona fide instrument, but I don't regard this as the masterpiece that so many make it out to be.

 ANDERSON BRUFORD WAKEMAN & HOWE discography, MP3 and reviews
ABWH was born in 1989 when Jon Anderson envisioned working again with his former YES bandmates, ouside the confines of the Trevor Rabin/Chris Squire-led "90125" lineup.
Gone were the radio- friendly, "Big Generator"-type, tracks; this was a full-blown return to the soaring YES epics of old; with the very first lines of the album boldly stating Jon's intent to once again set his music free from the enslaving corporate bonds which had held it for so long.
Rabin & Anderson began a dialogue with the record company that led to the idea of combining the two warring YES factions; thereby giving rise to the grand debacle that was to become "Union", and signaling the end of ABWH.

After this happened, some dates were canceled, and Bruford suggested to the rest of the band to call Berlin, who had 3-4 days to learn the songs, writing the bass parts in scores after hearing the original versions in the albums, and later rehearsing with the whole band.
Anderson included in his solo medley an acousitc version of "Owner of a lonely heart" which was played with Milton McDonald and Julian Colbeck (who also played on tour with GTR).
Wakeman, as always, sorrounded by all kind of keyboards and pedals, and also what he plays is, as always, out of match, incredible speed with very classical passages in his music with all source of changes from all keyboards, amazing.

The actual "union" never happened until the tour of that name, when Howe, Rabin, Kaye, Wakeman, Bruford, White, Anderson and Squire actually got together and held their egos in check long enough to create an incredible concert tour, playing music from all the Yes generations (including ABWH) and the new stuff from Union.
Laurie Anderson may not fit conveniently in with what is generally considered progressive rock, but then she does not fit conveniently in with most categories.
Only in Anderson's version it is the disembodied voice of an answering machine in the aftermath of the hostage crisis and Desert One pleading attention from the military, industry, technology and, yes, Superman - the supposed gods of the high-tech, neoconservative America of the early-1980s.

The project developed into an album—and ultimately a band—christened Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe; Bruford’s Crimson band mate Tony Levin handled bass.
ABWH embarks on a world tour, with the ABWH performance in Mountainview, CA, broadcast live over pay-per-view; it is subsequently released to video as An Evening of Yes Music Plus, the tag line for the tour.

Anderson then recruited three former Yes cohorts, reuniting 4/5 of the classic Yes line-up that recorded such early 70s milestones as "Fragile" and "Close to the Edge." He even tried to take back the Yes name, but this was blocked by Squire, the hold-out 1/5 of the classic line-up.
Thus Anderson's rival Yes was forced to trade under the band members' names, "Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe." Their first and only album, a Yes album in all but name, is a very good, but not perfect, return to Yes' early 70s glory years.
ABWH could have been called Yes, and with his input, the album could have joined the all -time Yes classics of the '71-'77 era.

That they've sold a ton of records without simplifying is quite an achievement for pop and roll, but there is a bedrock of audience-pleasing art in their melodic flair, instrumental dexterity, thematic other-worldliness and sonic flamboyance.
What makes Jon Anderson a pop rebel is his unselfconscious aversion to hip generalities and his compulsion towards the imaginative spiritual terrain that has given Yes distinction.
Anderson's lyrics are often the opposite of poetry.

The story as I understand it is that since Chris Squire was the ONLY consistent member of Yes, somehow he had legal right to the name.
So since Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, and Howe couldn't put an album out under the Yes moniker, they opted to use the name Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, Howe.
The first disc features a lot of solo stuff, but after that we are treated to some of the best of Yes' catalogue as well as selections from the A.B.W.H. album.

Pardon 2 CDs PCM (WAV) YES Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe Evening of Yes Music Plus REVIEW If the title to this double-disc live set seems a little, er, roundabout, it's not just you.
This material was drawn from the Anderson/Bruford/Wakeman/Howe tour in 1989, a group that was contractually barred from using the andquot;Yesandquot; moniker -- thus the reference to Yes Music (the andquot;plusandquot; most likely refers to the ABWH material).
Mixing classics (andquot;Starship Trooper,andquot; andquot;Close to the Edgeandquot;) with their recent material (andquot;Order of the Universe,andquot; andquot;Brother of Mineandquot;) is a mixed bag, and the solo sections are purportedly less than thrilling, so proceed with caution before picking this one up.

A perfect combination of ABWH music and the best what Yes had to offer us.

By 1989, there were two different factions, one led by guitarist Chris Squires that owned the rights to the name "Yes," and this one, featuring singer Jon Anderson, drummer Bill Bruford, keyboard player Rick Wakeman, and guitarist Steve Howe.
Born as John Roy Anderson on October 25, 1944, in Lancashire, England, Jon Anderson would grow up to become one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock.
Far and away the longest lasting and the most successful of the '70s progressive rock groups, Yes proved to be one of the lingering success stories from that musical genre.

File under "Yes." When this version of the band couldn't obtain rights to the name, they put their album out under their combined names, but it's still Yes by any other name.
Jon Anderson's tenor wails through spacey lyrics, Rick Wakeman constructs cathedrals of synthesized sound, Steve Howe rips high-pitched guitar leads, and Bill Bruford makes his drums sound like tympani.
For all that, it's a pedestrian effort for these veterans, not as bombastic as some of their stuff, not as inspired as others, but it definitely has the "Yes" sound.
