Demand Formation Of A Third Touring Version Of Yes

This petition had 244 supporters

The British progressive rock band Yes has had a substantial impact on the musical and spiritual lives of an incredible amount of fans around the world.  There are currently two versions of the group out on tour.  One features founding member and vocalist Jon Anderson, keyboardist Rick Wakeman and guitarist Trevor Rabin who revived the band with the recording and release of 1983's "90125" album. This effort was originally named just Anderson Rabin & Wakeman but now tours as Yes Featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman.

The second current touring version of Yes has "classic" lineup member Steve Howe on guitar with longtime bandmate Alan White on drums in a group fortified by Dylan Howe on drums, Jon Davison on vocals and Billy Sherwood on bass with Geoff Downes (from the 1980 "Drama" album) on keyboards.

For the rabid Yes fan two bands on tour are not quite enough. There are a plethora of other former members who could and should form a third unit to allow more presentations of the great catalog of Yes music onstage.  

This petition requests, nay, demands that these former past members of Yes, calling themselves Bruford Horn Levin & Moraz, also immediately start meeting, creating an amazing four hour set list, rehearsing until exhaustion, financing a tour of immense and spectacular proportions and then hoist onstage an incredible cosmic musical adventure which incessantly tours Europe, Asia, Australia and both North and South America:

Bill Bruford - drums and percussion ("retirement" will not be respected nor accepted as an excuse)

Trevor Horn - vocals (with more instrumental pieces replacing sung numbers as the tour proceeds)

Tony Levin - bass guitar and Chapman stick (only when absolutely necessary)

Patrick Moraz - a multitude of both keyboards and hair

As a side note sideman Jimmy Haun will handle all the guitar parts as he did on the 1991 "Union" album.
