    Rick W poorly?

    Just heard Rick Wakeman has cancelled all his gigs until the new year because he's been advised not to over do things following a health scare after Easter. That means Wakemanfest is postponed! The only gig he's doing is this Friday at The Roundhouse at Barrow Hill near Chesterfield. Just had a look and they show as having tickets.

    I hafta admit, I'm typing more about seeing your user name, EngineShed.

    However, is this health scare related to why he quit Yes, for a while,
    and then came back?
    That's the only time I saw him live, touring with Yes, playing in the Buffalo arena, 1978 maybe.
    He had a lot of theatrical props, calliope horses around a round stage, but didn't use them.

    But to be open and honest,
    "Gates of Delirium" offa "Relayer" is my favorite overall Yes.
    Can you be honest, as a local?
    As an international looker, does this mean Rick can't sell a big tour,
    and is just playing a local club? That's a far better gig to be in, for everybody.

    Just reading the new Rolling Stone this morning, and Rick's in it.
    He's been part of a touring Yes band, just not using the name.
    Steve Howes' Yes band is also touring and using the name.
    A 50th reunion tour is not only anticipated, but predicted,
    where they all will be using the name.
    Yes never did become No.
