This guy didn't play on Close to the Edge. Or Fragile. Or really any of the good Yes albums.

RIP still I guess.

Shame on most of you who don't even seem to realize Banks only played on Yes' first two albums. Admittedly the classic stuff came with his departure and Steve Howe's arrival, but that makes the man no less important in shaping the band's early sound. R.I.P.

edit: ah KILL beat me to it

I've never even listened to Yes, but what kind of shit is that? He didn't play on any of their "good" albums so fuck him. That's pretty fucked don't you think?

People die, it's part of life.

I'm not going to give every person who touched a guitar a fucking eulogy.
