Yesterday, it was reported that singer Jon Anderson would reunite with Yes at the upcoming Rock Hall induction ceremony next month. However, remarks from Anderson about who is going to be part of the reunion may be inaccurate.
The former Yes vocalist told Billboard that Geddy Lee of Rush, set to induct Yes, will take the place of late bassist Chris Squire for the group’s performance of “Roundabout.”
A statement from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation counters the collaboration rumor: “Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were only confirmed to do the induction speech for one of their favorite bands and not perform. They, like all the other Yes fans, look forward to honoring them and watching them perform at the induction ceremony on April 7 and the HBO broadcast on April 29.”
Neither Anderson nor Yes have commented on the dispute, but the band’s official social accounts have directed curious fans to articles denying the claim.
