He is getting up there isn't he Garrett...

One of my all time favorite keyboard players, heard he has gone through some health issues in recent years and hope he is feeling good and has many more birthdays to celebrate.

Favorite Rick Wakeman solo album...."Journey to the Center of the Earth", have the MFSL version in the library.

I did n`t know he was having health issues, I wish him the best! That makes sense of this statement I seen on their site...

According to Yes World...

"Yes is reuniting with keyboardist Geoff Downes and will tour the U.S. this summer with Styx."

Yeah he's had major problems the last few years, I don't think he will ever tour abroad with Yes again. It's no big secret he drank a lot during his younger days, and I am sure that didn't help in the long run.

Yes touring without Jon and Rick...wouldn't seem like a Yes concert to me, but I wish them success all around.

Rick Wakeman's Piano Portraits will be released this Friday 13th.




I'm excited about this because his piano renditions of Bowie's "Space Oddity and Life on Mars" is spectacular!! (both will be on the album) along with his piano rendition of "Stairway to Heaven"

Enjoy!

Space Oddity/Life on Mars


Stairway to Heaven
