Anderson & Wakeman At Odds With Yes

The rift between Jon Anderson and Yes opened when the group recruited a cover band vocalist to replace Anderson on tour last year (story)Anderson recently leveled more criticism against the group for announcing it plans another tour with Benoit David as its vocalist.  Anderson now has an ally.  Former Yes keyboard player Rick Wakeman has sided with Anderson. In an interview with Classic Rock Revisited, Wakeman is quoted as saying "You can't have Yes without Jon", and calling the band touring as Yes a tribute band he doesn't "have any respect for".  Ironically, Wakeman's son, Oliver, fills his father's former role in the group.
