    He was way under-recognized. And Flash was a really cool band too--love his playing with them.

    I really liked his playing and writing on the early Yes albums. I had hoped at some time for the "original" Yes lineup to tour and do their early material...

    Sorry, I was incorrect. I thought he had wored on Beyond & Before and Sweetness from the first album, but I looked and see it was Clive Bailey...
