British progressive rock band, Yes, hails from
London. The band's inception dates back to 1968 and has experienced various lineup changes and splits over the years. The
show-stopping Yes pioneered the music scene in the '70s with a progressive rock combo sound and continues to forge ahead.
Jon Anderson ventured out in the midst of the British beat boom as a bandmate of the Warriors. He eventually played in the
band, Gun, before pursuing a solo career in 1967. He was barely making a living at La Chasse during the summer of 1968 and
was tossing around the idea of founding a new band. By chance, he met up with Chris Squire, a bassist/vocalist, and a former
member of the band, the Syn. The two discovered they had a lot in common, and within just days, they were penning songs together.
worked hard on integrating harmonies with a strong rock backing. According to Squire, their biggest inspiration when they
were first starting out was the Fifth Dimension. They eventually enlisted three other members to join them on their musical
quest, and the name Yes was adopted based on being "short, direct and memorable."
The British music scene was evolving.
Lovely melodies and delicate sounds were being replaced by bolder sounds of bands like Cream. And, bands like Deep Purple
and the Nice were also surfacing, bringing progressive rock to light.
For Yes, their big break arrived in the fall of
1968. Yes was invited to play at London's Speakeasy Club, filling in for Sly & the Family Stone.
their momentum in the spotlight when they opened for Cream at their farewell concert in November 1968, at Royal Albert Hall.
The concert opened doors for them, earning a residency at the Marquee Club in London. They also made their first radio appearance
on the Top Gear radio show that was hosted by John Peel. Yes then opened for Janis Joplin in the spring of 1969 at the Royal
Albert Hall and inked a deal with Atlantic Records shortly after.
Sweetness was their debut single. And their eponymous
album arrived in November 1969. The record served as a crystal-clear example of their basic sound that would became their
signature for albums that followed, defined by perfect high harmonies.
In early 1970, Yes supported the Nice while they
worked on their sophomore album. Time and a Word came out in June 1970. The group's reputation continued to grow in England
as they continued to gain exposure at concerts, including serving as the opening act for Iron Butterfly. The Yes Album, released
in the spring of 1971, gave the public a looking-glass into the band's true potential as a singing group. The album landed
at No. 7 in England and a year later, it crossed the pond and reached No. 40 in the U.S.
In early 1971, Yes opened for
Jethro Tull during their debut U.S. tour. And they returned to share the marquee with the J. Geils Band and Ten Years After.
group set to work on Fragile, which featured songs like The South Side of the Sky, Roundabout, Heart of the Sunrise and Long
Distance Runaround. Fragile charted at No. 7 in England and No. 4 in the U.S.
Throughout the remainder of the '70s and
'80s, Yes continued to crank out albums, despite what seemed like a continuously revolving lineup.

Oceans, Relayer and Going for the One. The rise of punk rock at the end of the 1970s deflated Yes' album sales, but Yes was
able to pick up the pieces in 1982 when Yes adopted a more pop rock style and sound that was well received. Their sales peaked
across the decade with 90125, which churned out the U.S. No. 1 single, Owner of a Lonely Heart – a single still receiving
