In a recent interview with Billboard.com Jon Anderson has confirmed he will take part in Yes’ induction to the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame. Among the items, he mentions is that Rush’s Geddy Lee will not only be inducting the band alongside his bandmate Alex Lifeson, but would also join Yes on stage to fill in for one of his heroes, Chris Squire. Since the interview was posted, the Rock Hall sent a buzz killing statement Billboard denying Lee’s involvement beyond the induction of the band. Here is a excerpt from their statement:
“Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were only confirmed to do the induction speech for one of their favorite bands and not perform.”
We shall wait and see if Geddy plays a larger roll, given Rush’s current hiatus. Would people be interested in seeing him tour as part of Yes?
