Rick Wakeman Won't Attend Yes' Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction

January 5, 2017
Keyboardist Rick Wakeman has confirmed he will not attend Yes' long-awaited induction into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, taking place April 7 in Brooklyn, NY. Wakeman says he would have been happier if the honor happened years ago, when co-founding bassist Chris Squire was still alive. Squire died in the summer of 2015 and Yes has been eligible for the RRHOF since 1994.

On his official website, Wakeman writes, "I have no idea if there will be any sort of reunion, but whatever happens under no circumstances will I be any part of it - neither will I be attending."

In other news, Wakeman will release a new album, Piano Portraits, on January 13.
