Hello, I have just come back from the Glastonbury Festival where I was fortunate to have seen Yes play in the baking sun on Sunday afternoon. This was the second time this month that I had seen Yes but its the first time (june 5th) I want to talk about. Midway through the set Steve Howe starts playing the unmistakeable harmonic introduction to 'The Fish' Chris, knowing the audience was aware a bass solo was coming walked up to the front of the stage and held his Ricky up in the air as if to say 'look out!' The solo begins and Chris is left alone on stage whilst the other members slip off. Chris(who is a big guy 6 ft 2?) was pounding around the stage really enjoying showing off when, during one mad stage dash he accidently tripped up and went flying full on onto his face! The bass made an almighty kerrang as this 55 year old man came crashing down on his poor Ric. The audience did'nt know whether to laugh or cry as ol Chris struggled up to his feet looking slightly dazed he heroically got straight back into his solo and continued to move around the stage. To compound the comedy of this moment though, one has to remember the skin tight leggings this not slim man has taken to wearing recently. Ghastly! Chris, although repairing his dignity by his continuing of the (great) solo,went and blew it after the tune had finished by going up to the mic and saying, "Huh, you saw me trip then, well I would have been able to see where I'm going if they'd get the bloody lights right!" Yeah, yeah, yeah,we all thought,blame someone else on your emabarrasing episode. Not cool. Poor Chris, still a brilliant musician and one of my biggest influences, still an egomaniac.
