Geoff Downes of YES, ASIA and The Buggles on tours, live memories and why he still gets a buzz from radio!

Ahead of Wednesday’s Drive I caught up with keyboardist, songwriter and producer Geoff Downes. Geoff plays keyboard in several iconic bands including YES, ASIA and The Buggles so it was great to chat about what it’s like juggling being in several successful bands at once, what it’s like to be in a “supergroup” and whether new material written for one band ever finds it’s way into the other band! We also covered the upcoming tour with YES, a very special ASIA live box set and, despite the success of all his bands, how he still gets a buzz hearing one of their songs on the radio.

For the full interview click play in the box below or click here to listen online from 3pm on Wednesday 25th May. (UK time.)

You can see YES on the tour celebrating the 50th anniversary of their iconic Close To the Edge album featuring the album played in full along with other classic tracks from YES’s extensive catalogue. Click here for tickets.

You can pre-order your copy of ASIA Live At The Budokan Arena in 1983. The deluxe boxset includes 2LP, 2CD, 40 page 12″ book, Blu-ray DVD, printed memorabilia and ASIA pin badge. Released on BMG Records on 10th June. Click here to get yours.
