The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will host a Legends Series interview with progressive rock pioneers YES on Tuesday, August 6 at 7 p.m. on the Museum’s Main Stage.

After the interview, the band members will answer questions from the audience.
Founded in 1968 by Jon Anderson and Chris Squire, Grammy-award winning recording artists YES have created some of the most important and influential music in rock history. Throughout their career, YES has been known for its esoteric lyrics, elaborate album art, live stage sets expansive songs, such as the iconic pieces “Roundabout,” “Close to the Edge,” “I’ve Seen All Good People,” “Owner of a Lonely Heart,” and countless others. Having sold tens of millions of records over its four-decade career, the band has overcome a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock band. YES continues creating masterful music that inspires fans and musicians from around the globe. They are currently on a World Tour, playing three albums of their classic albums The Yes Album, Close To The Edge and Going For The One in their entirety.
