YES drummer Alan White guests on Ep. 276 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.
In the show’s only interview, YES drummer Alan White discusses the band’s upcoming 2017 Cruise To The Edge, his recent health issues, the importance of their 90125 album, working with The Beatles’ John Lennon, his Ramshackled solo album, Run With The Fox and much more.
QUOTES from the interview:
His back issues (time 1.04): “I wouldn’t say I was fully recuperated, but I’m actually feeling very good.”
The 90125 album (time 4.05): “The whole thing came from Chris and myself just being very good colleagues in music and we knew what we had together worked”
Working with John Lennon (time 6.08): “He was a total genius.”
Chris Squire (time 12.11): “We had a great mental understanding of each other. He was one of the greatest bass players in the world. He was so articulate and creative with what he did (songwriting and bass). In passing away I miss him dearly because we had a connection for forty three years.”
New YES album in the offing (time 14.31): “Everybody’s got music in their minds. So, yeah, you’ve got to get that stuff out of your brain and get it recorded.”
Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame discussed – starting at 16.01
