Martin Popoff Writing About Prog? Some Mistake Surely!

For his 50th book, Martin Popoff forsakes his metal musings to focus on Yes, a band he has admired since the 1970s. Let the truth be told – Popoff is a secret lover of prog rock (as many of us are!).

Using the timeline format, Martin covers the key events, albums, tours and anecdotes in the Yes story from pre-Yes bands to the present, interviewing Anderson, Bruford, Howe, Wakeman, White and many more players, getting some great yarns in the process. More poignantly, he secured one of the last interviews the late Chris Squire gave, from 2014. Squackett partner, and close friend of Squire, Steve Hackett provides a lovely eulogy too.

Also covered are the major projects outside the Yes umbrella, such as Asia, GTR and the highlights of Rick Wakeman’s illustrious career.

It’s high time to bring the Yes story up to date. Popoff does just that.
