Following in the footsteps of bands like Judas Priest, Journey and Boston, Yes is turning to the lead singer of Close To The Edge – a Yes tribute band – to fill in on their 40th Anniversary Tour while Jon Anderson recovers from acute respiratory failure, as reported by Rolling Stone this morning.

I can’t believe they’d go with a sub for the 40th Anniversary Tour, though. Why not push it back a year so that Jon can be a part of it?

Ah well, it’s all been done before, right? Wake me when this happens with a solo performer.
