"So it’s no surprise that the lead vocalist on the band’s upcoming studio album, Fly From Here, is Benoit David, the former frontman of a Montreal-based Yes cover band."

Um, nice try, Damian. It was a big surprise to those who have supported YES for decades - - - a decision that's degraded not only their live shows, but their 'brand' as well. Sharing the bill with Styx is yet another desperate attempt to remain viable. While some groups members can be swapped successfully, others *define* the sound. Just as there would be no Rolling Stones without Mick, Jon Anderson was not only the signature lead vocal, but also the heart and soul of the group, essential to the sound of YES.
