Yes Say 'No' To Singer Fronting His Own Band
New Yes front man Jon Davidson has been banned from playing with his band Glass Hammer on the upcoming Cruise to the Edge shipboard festival. The five day event, which begins on March 25th, features the likes of Steve Hackett, Carl Palmer, Tangerine Dream, Genesis Revisited and IOEarth alongside the aforementioned. However, as Glass Hammer member Steve Babb has reported, the show, along with the band's 20th Anniversary Concert on March 10th, will be performed without Jon Davidson: "Some of you know that we've invited Carl Groves to rejoin the band for a Twentieth Anniversary Concert in Chattanooga, TN on March 10. "We're happy to announce he'll not only join us for that show, but will be fronting the group for the Cruise To The Edge concerts as well. "We realise some of you will be disappointed that Jon Davison will not be fronting the band. I can only assure you that Jon and the other members immediately said 'yes' when asked to do the Cruise, but Yes management said 'no'!" But what do you think? Should Yes have the right to say 'no' to Davidson, or is not letting the singer rejoin his band mates for a 20th Anniversary show a bit harsh? Let us know in the comments.
