The new issue of Prog is on sale today. We look at the current state of play with prog legends Yes. We chat to both line-ups currently touring under the Yes banner, what their future plans are and whether we can expect a new studio album from either camp. We interview Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison, Billy Sherwood, Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman and Trevor Rabin who also reveal what really went on at Yes’ induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, what is going with the use of the band name and what the future light hold for both parties…
