Info for Tormato
Yes released Tormato (heralded by the single “Don’t Kill the Whale“ an unusually direct song for the group with its topical message).
In 1979,”Don’t Kill The Whale” reached the top 10 on both UK and US charts. However, trouble was brewing as sessions for the band’s next album fell apart at the end of 1979, with Wakeman and Anderson leaving the band.
Anderson’s focus was turning to a collaboration with Vangelis. The two released an album, Short Stories, and an accompanying single, “I Hear You,” in January 1980, both of which reached the British top 10. Jon & Vangelis, as the team became known, went on to cut several more records together.
In a surprise move, Trevor Horn (vocals) and Geoffrey Downes (keyboards) of the British band The Buggles (whose “Video Killed the Radio Star” had made number one in several countries), joined Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Alan White in a new Yes.

Yes is an English rock band who achieved worldwide success with their progressive, art, and symphonic style of rock music. Regarded as one of the pioneers of the progressive genre, Yes are known for their lengthy songs, mystical lyrics, elaborate album art, and live stage sets. No fewer than 18 musicians have been a part of the band's line-up, with its current form comprising singer Jon Davison, bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, and keyboardist Geoff Downes. Yes have sold close to 50 million albums worldwide, including 13.5 million certified units in the United States.
Alan is considered by many to be one of the greatest rock drummers of all-time. With forty-plus years of performance experience and appearances on over fifty albums, Alan's dossier reads like a who's-who of rock legends. With his consummate professionalism and easy-going nature, Alan continues to be an inspiration to fellow musicians as well as fans.
Chris was born in London, England in March 1948. Chris began his musical career as a choirboy, which gave Chris a particular insight into choir arrangement and vocal techniques that was to follow him throughout his career. Chris formed YES in 1968 with vocalist Jon Anderson, and is the only member of YES to appear on every studio album.
Geoff Downes was born into a musical family in Stockport, England, where his father had been organist and choirmaster at a church. Geoff went to Leeds School of Music in 1971, graduating in 1975, thus becoming the first member of Yes to graduate with a degree in music.
Born in 1947, Steve began teaching himself to play the guitar at the age of 12, and lists Bill Haley, Les Paul, Jimmy Byant, Speedy West, Barney Kessel, and Chet Atkins as his influences. Steve first joined YES in 1970, and has also been a member of The Syndicats, Bodast, Tomorrow, Asia and GTR. A prolific performer, Steve released his 19th solo album in 2010.
