Prog-rock kings Yes are known for their intricate and multimovement songs, ethereal lyrics and harmonies, and fantasy-fueled album-cover art (mostly by Roger Dean, who also designed their distinctive logo). Through the '60s and '70s, albums like Fragile, Close to the Edge, and Tales From Topographic Oceans and tracks "Starship Trooper," "I've Seen All Good People," "Roundabout," and "Long Distance Runaround" became classic-rock staples.
And after making a surprising comeback in the early '80s with two songs whose videos were constantly in rotation on the then-fledgling MTV ("Owner of a Lonely Heart," "Leave It"), the band found new life. It's continued to make new music and tour with changing (and returning) members on and off ever since. Bassist Chris Squire is the only Yes man present from the beginning and through every lineup, and with the latest incarnation that lands at Sunset Cove Amphitheater on Sunday.
