So who--other than Oliver Wakeman--isn't an original member? Or, put another way, is this band basically the same as the hit-making machine?

Jon Anderson provided YES's signature sound. (along with Chris Squires fantastic bass work).

irony: partially assembled 40 year old group cashing in on their name in a club co-opting the name of 2 legendary venues that closed 40 years ago.
