pete's quote: What an eternal pity it is that nobody saw fit to film any of the TFTO tour gigs.

especially when they performed all four sides at madison square gardens ! i first saw yes in '78 in providence, and my butt was getting numb sitting thru all the long songs. think of what my butt would have felt like thru "tales" ! chris also used to play a rick 360 mapleglo. i think the films of "queen's park" show him playing it. i did find a clip of "seen all good people" with with chris playing a rick acoustic.

More thread drift: any word on Vince Gallo's book?

I do remember that pic of the Guild, Dano and Ampeg Baby Bass. Forget he had that.

Here is a shot of the MPC (modules) circa '80 for those of us who also saw the Drama tour. Note the Mutron and Brassmaster on the rack. The Marshall, Conn ST-11 tuner, etc.

I’ve got the original fish out of water bass that was commissioned for the Harrods hard rock exhibition, the parts where donated by mr hall- painted by Paul kerslake and rebuilt by Dan Macpherson guitars, Chris squire told them how he wanted the guitar to be and then commissioned another 4 to be built for himself-so there was only 5 of these guitars made, mines currently up for sale, I’m currently accepting offers- if anybody’s interested you can contact me at belfastbackline@ gmail.com
