Geoff Downes Talks YES at 50

Geoff Downes (R) talks about the upcoming YES 50th Anniversary tour as well as his work with Chris Braide (L) in DBA

I was delighted to speak over the phone with YES keyboardist Geoff Downes on Friday.

Geoff has a great pedigree in the music world, co-writing Video Killed the Radio Star with Buggles band mate Trevor Horn, also being a key member of Asia and co-writing their massive hit, Heat of the Moment.

Aside from these, Geoff is currently working on solo material, plus his project Downes Braide Association (DBA) with prolific songwriter for some of the World’s biggest pop acts, Chris Braide.

Listen again as we talk about all that, but firstly about YES’ upcoming 50th Anniversary tour in March.
