Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

There has been no more influential or enduring force in the history of progressive rock music than Yes. From their hit songs "Roundabout" and "Owner of a Lonely Heart" to classic albums like Fragile, Close to the Edge and 90125, Yes has innovated its way inexorably into rock history. And the drama of the band's 30-year history surpasses even that of the music. Rock music critic Scott Robinson turns the history of this most revered band on its ear by telling it in the most irreverent of forms - the limerick.

Format: Paperback
YesTales is both informative and enjoyable (a rare combination, indeed). It is not encumbered with ranting opinion. I found it to be punchy, poignant and colorful ... a lively account of three decades of Yes. And the Limericks are hilarious! I have been a Yes fan for many years, and love all eras of Yes music. A Yes fan of any era would really enjoy this book, and any real Yes fan will know that says a lot! Three decades is a lot of music, and very distintive eras. I loved it!

I love this book. It's brilliant! The limericks outline the entire history of the band. The bio is there as well to fill in any gaps. The limericks are just great. Anyone who loves this band as much as I do will really enjoy this book.
