Damion Anderson - Jon's son. SoundCloud; MySpace page

Damion has written songs with dad Jon for a possible next Anderson/Stolt album. In a Jan 2021 interview, talking about the project, Stolt referred to there being "probably seven or eight songs" that "we've done up to this point", with there being "one or two of the songs he [Jon] wrote together with his son." Stolt talked more about one song they've co-written in a 2023 interview with Yesshift, saying "There's one little song he wrote together with his son, y'know, that I absolutely love. Great song. Very melodic. Very poppy, but great." In a Jun 2011 interview, Jon said he was writing material with Damion: see under Jon Anderson for details.
 
Damion has several songs available on his SoundCloud account.

Deborah Anderson - Jon's daughter; backing vocals on ABWH. MySpace page; Deborah Anderson Photography; Twitter; Facebook

Deborah's photography project on the history of Barbados, entitled "A Love Letter to Barbados", was exhibited at the Photoville Festival 2023 (3-18 Jun, New York, NY). She has an exhibition entitled "Faces of Leica LA" from 4 Nov 2023 at 743 Santeria Street, Los Angeles, CA.

Deborah made "Women of the White Buffalo" (89 minutes; trailer; Twitter), a feature documentary film about the Lakota women living on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, narrated by Rita Coolidge. Deborah directed and edited, with the screenplay by her and Charlotte Chatton (Brian Chatton's daughter). The film is produced by Deborah Anderson, Adam Schomer, Charles Barsamian and Kumiko Hayashi, and co-produced by Rachelle Garzia, Matthew Rebula and Chatton. The associate producers are Carol Iron Rope Herrera and Linda Livingston, with executive producers including Julian Lennon and The Edge. The film premièred Nov 2019 in Beverly Hills, at the 24th Red Nation International Film Festival. There was a crowdfunding campaign for a final edit and self-distribution. The film was released 12 Apr 2022 in 68 territories on Google Play, Apple TV, Vudu and Amazon. She previously exhibited photos of the project.

Dad Jon Anderson wrote and performed the theme song with Delacina Chief Eagle, who appears in the film. (Jon has an older song called "White Buffalo", but I presume the song for the film is different.) Deborah said, "His voice is also featured throughout th[e] [...] film." Jon was interviewed about the film here in early 2021. The score was by Jennie Muskett (scored Spooks).

Deborah continues to do photography for her father. She did various promo shots for him, including of Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman rehearsals for the tour book and for his 1000 Hands project.

Tom Brislin - keys on YesSymphonic tour. Twitter

Brislin is in Kansas and has been touring with them since 2019. Their recent tour continued Mar-May 2023, and they then tour in celebration of the band's 50th anniversary from Jun.

His first album with the band was The Absence of Presence (InsideOut Music), released Jul 2020. The rest of the band were Phil Ehart (drums, percussion), Rich Williams (guitar), Billy Greer (bass, vocals), David Ragsdale (violin, backing vocals), Ronnie Platt (vocals) and Zak (Zarak) Rizvi (4Front; guitar, backing vocals), but Rizvi left in Apr 2021. Ragsdale left in May 2023, replaced by Joe Deninzon (Stratospheerius, works with Dave Kerzner). The album was produced by Rizvi and co-produced by Ehart/Williams. Tracks:


  1. "The Absence of Presence" [mus: Rizvi; lyr: Brislin/Ehart] (8:22)
  2. "Throwing Mountains" [mus: Rizvi; lyr: Brislin/Ehart] (6:18), video

  8. "Never" [mus: Rizvi; lyr: Platt/Ehart] (4:50)
  9. "The Song the River Sang" [Brislin] (5:05)

The album has 4 pieces from Rizvi but with lyrics by or largely by Brislin—"Throwing Mountains" (title and lyric ideas by Ehart), "The Absence of Presence" (title and lyrical concept by Ehart), "Jets Overhead" and "Animals on the Roof"—while "Memories Down the Line" and "The Song the River Sang" are complete songs Brislin wrote for the band. Brislin also composed the instrumental "Propulsion 1", which was written several years earlier. Platt is the main vocalist on the album, but Brislin sings lead on "The Song the River Sang" and provides backing vocals for much of the album.

Brislin said in an Aug 2021 interview that the band will make another album. In a Feb 2023 interview with Yesshift, Brislin said, "I am working on new music for Kansas. We will have another album one of these days."




Kansas released The Point of Know Return Live & Beyond (InsideOut Music) in May 2021, taken from across 12 shows in 2019-20, during which they played all of the band's album Point of Know Return. The release was available digitally, as a 2CD, and as a 3LP+2CD box (with 180g vinyl). Tracks—disc 1:

Kansas released Another Fork in the Road – 50 Years of Kansas in Dec 2022. This 3CD set, overseen by Ehart, compiles material across the band's history, including 2 tracks from The Absence of Presence with Brislin. New for the set was a recording by the current band of "Can I Tell You", originally released on the band's debut album.

In a May 2020 interview, Brislin said he was writing a lot during the COVID-19 lockdown, which might be for various different projects. He mooted the possibility of another solo album. He was also teaching. In a May 2021 interview with the New Ears Prog Show, possibly recorded in Apr, Brislin again talked of writing during the pandemic, saying he wrote with "no preconceptions" with the plan being to "sort it out later" what he did with the material. He described now having "over 100 of these little [...] recordings" that he is now sorting through for potentially Kansas, his solo career, The Sea Within or other projects. In an Aug 2022 interview, he said he was writing new music.

Brislin was at the 2018 ProgStock Festival with his new band called Gold Rotation, consisting of himself (keys, vocals), Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance; guitar, bass, vocals), Daniel McGowan (The Tea Club; guitar, vocals), Rajendra Sharma (ex-Spiraling; drums) and David Anthony (percussion). Set: "Stuff You Would Not Understand" (from his solo album Hurry Up and Smell the Roses), "Your Favorite Day" (Hurry Up...), "Titan" (probably a new piece), "Industry in the Distance" (Hurry Up...), "They Know My Name" (originally released by The Sea Within; solo piano), "Liftoff" (Hurry Up...; solo piano), "When You Told Me Not to Go" (Hurry Up...; solo piano), "Wind Him Up" (originally by Saga; with Michael Sadler), "Hurry Up and Smell the Roses" (Hurry Up...), "I Hold a Candle" (Hurry Up...), "Microphone" (Hurry Up...). In his 2019 new year's message, Brislin said the band would be writing and recording in 2019. In the Feb 2019 interview, he said, "There's a lot of writing on the agenda, and we aim to start recording in the coming months."

Brislin was one of two keyboardists on Invention of Knowledge by Jon Anderson and Roine Stolt (Transatlantic, The Flower Kings): see under Anderson for details. Brislin (keys, backing vocals) also joined Stolt (guitars, backing vocals, keys) in The Sea Within (Twitter), which includes two more performers who were on Invention of Knowledge, Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings, Steve Hackett, Karmakanic, worked with The Syn; bass) and Daniel Gildenlöw (Pain of Salvation, Transatlantic, ex-The Flower Kings; vocals, guitar), plus Marco Minnemann (Levin Minnemann Rudess, Steven Wilson, The Aristocrats, Mike Keneally, In Continuum, worked with Eddie Jobson, UK, Trey Gunn, Alex Lifeson, Joe Satriani; drums, percussion, guitar, backing vocals). Their debut album, also called The Sea Within (details in Yescography), was released Jun 2018. Anderson guested on 1 song. Gildenlöw withdrew from the band before live work; the band played live thrice. There was a Jul 2018 show at the Night of the Prog festival, Loreley, Germany, with Pete Trewavas (Marillion, Transatlantic) subbing for Reingold, who was otherwise committed. They played twice on the Cruise to the Edge 2019, with Stolt, Reingold, Brislin, Minnemann and Casey McPherson (Flying Colors). The band were already considering a second album, according to Stolt in a May 2018 interview, based around an expected core of Stolt, McPherson, Reingold, Brislin and Minnemann, with Gildenlöw possibly just guesting. When he was asked about more touring in his Feb 2019 interview, Brislin noted, "With my new position in Kansas, Jonas playing bass for Steve Hackett, and a new iteration of the Flower Kings, we're going to put our heads together to see where the Sea Within fits in to everything. We all believe that there's a lot of potential yet to explore."

In a Feb 2020 interview, asked about his activities for the year, Stolt said, "if God will there may be another The Sea Within-album". In an Oct 2020 interview with Yes Music Podcast, Stolt said:
There was plans last year [2019]. We were all on the boat [...] We had a kind of a band meeting and we were talking about, ‘OK, shall we try make something next year, and shall we try write some songs etc.?’ But I think pretty much it stopped there and I don’t know if it has anything to do with the corona or band members being busy with other stuff, but I’m thinking, I mean, now we have this situation where no-one really can go out and play [...] There should be time, but I think probably the reality is that we have so many other things to do, so it’s just sitting there, waiting to be made, but I can’t tell really when.

He said more in a Jan 2021 interview:

It’s strange time for all of us. It’s about a couple of different things, we have other projects, but it’s also about survival. So we need to find ways to get the money in. Transatlantic for me is a good way of that, and The Flower Kings [...] So sometimes I have to give priority, you know, and which I kind of regret sometimes, but it’s reality. [...] Sometimes I’m too much of a dreamer. So I just think about all these projects with other people that I want to do and it just goes on and on and on. Sometimes you spend a lot of time on projects that don’t generate a lot of money. There’s other stuff, even like The Sea Within, there was a plan for a second album. We haven’t made much progress to be honest, but there are songs and so we got to just say, Okay, let’s do this now, and start sending out files and, Can you sing on this? Can you play drums on this? And then once we get to that point then you can move forward.

In an Aug 2023 interview, with Yesshift, he said: "I hope for a second album, but I... Being realistic, the way things are right now, y'know, with Tom with Kansas and Jonas playing with Steve Hackett and I try to slim down a little bit [...] I decided to cut down a little bit and concentrate on the Flower Kings, try to concentrate on making this album with Jon [the follow-up to Invention of Knowledge] and [a project with Doane Perry]."

Asked about The Sea Within in a May 2021 interview with the New Ears Prog Show, Minnemann said, "[W]e keep in touch, obviously, and we have plans, y'know, for making those albums, y'know, and doing it further". But he then spoke about enjoying focusing on his main projects (McStine & Minnemann, The Aristocrats) during the pandemic. He continued, "I don't want to kind of right now detour to kind of release another bunch of albums with someone else to confuse [...] people", preferring to concentrate on the next two McStine & Minnemann releases.



Asked if there would be new activity from the band in the Feb 2023 Yesshift interview, Brislin said, "Never say never! But [...] The Sea Within was something that ended up being short-lived for a few reasons. I started playing with Kansas and Jonas got on the Steve Hackett tour [...] A lot of things happened that we didn't expect but had to run with".

In his May 2018 Yes Music Podcast interview, Brislin said he and Jon Anderson have been and are looking for further ways to work together. Likewise, in this Jul 2018 interview, he said, "Jon Anderson and I had been talking about ways to work together ever since my tours with Yes in 2001."

Dylan Howe - Steve's son; toured with Yes. Official Website; Twitter; Bandcamp

Dylan was playing with Wilko Johnson's trio; Johnson was formerly in Dr Feelgood and The Blockheads, and the trio was rounded out by bassist Norman Watt-Roy, still currently in The Blockheads. Late Aug 2021, they played their first post-pandemic live show. They continued touring in 2022. However, Johnson passed away in late Nov 2022.

Dylan is playing drums live for Jazz Sabbath's tour Oct/Nov 2022 tour, with a live album expected. Jazz Sabbath is led by Adam Wakeman, so see under him for details.

In a podcast released Mar 2020, but recorded seemingly in mid-2017, Howe talked about "preparing" to do some original work as a solo artist/bandleader.

Dylan played drums on Steve's solo album, Love Is: see under Steve Howe for details.

Eddie Jobson - briefly joined Yes before the release of 90125. Homepage; Official Facebook fan page; Zealots Lounge

In Oct 2017, Jobson announced his retirement from live performance. He described his lack of activity over the previous six months, saying "reasons for this are too copious to enumerate here, but they do include being injured in a fall; then being involved in a high-speed car crash on a Los Angeles freeway (I have been in therapy for my back for the past four months); and, in the past year [2016] alone, dealing with the deaths of nine (yes, nine) close friends, colleagues and family members." He continued, "This and other business factors have led me to some significant decisions, the first of which is that I am permanently retiring from live concert touring. [...] A second decision [...] is to sell my house and studio, leave Los Angeles and move back to New York." He also explained that, "I am not disengaging from music, just gracefully transitioning into my retirement years. The coming weeks and months will see the complete delivery of the piano improvs, along with a video of each, as well as work on some legacy compilations and a possible vinyl release. [...] 2018 will see a complete restructuring of Globe Music [...] and the Zealots Lounge". However, late May 2018, he announced:
Due to persistent demand since announcing my retirement from concert touring, I have decided to perform a one-off concert with a full band on October 7 [2018] - headlining the last night of ProgStock 2018 [...] I shall be playing the music of ‘UK’ with a virtuoso lineup of players
The band was with Marc Bonilla (ex-Keith Emerson Band; bass, vocals), Alex Machacek (guitar), Thomas Lang (drums). Jobson said this would likely be his last live performance. The piano improvisations were recorded in 2016 using a crowdfunding model (YouTube preview here).

There was a Jobson fan convention in Japan in Nov 2022. Performing were tribute band UKY, and Jobson joined them for a performance of "Caesar's Palace Blues".



1971-1979 The Band Years (Globe Music Media) was released Oct 2018; details in Yescography. The liner notes of this album announced subsequent releases:
1980-1989 The Solo Years
1990-1999 The Scoring Years
2000-2009 The Eclectic Years
2010-2019 The Retrospective Years
However, these have yet to appear.

Jobson had previously talked of writing some new music. Around Aug 2012, he said on his Zealots Lounge website that, "I am ready to make some new music and implement some new ideas for UKZ." However, he then announced in an autumn 2012 update that:
mainly to do with time and the availability of others, it has become clear that I will be unable to produce any new music for UKZ before the scheduled [...] tours in late March [2013].
A Dec 2013 Facebook update talked of Jobson's plans for 2014 including "an eye toward creating new music." New UKZ music did not appear.

Jobson performed at a Keith Emerson tribute show on 28 May 2016 in Los Angeles, CA, organised, produced and arranged by Marc Bonilla. Other performers included Bonilla, Steve Porcaro (Toto, worked with Yes), Steve Lukather (Toto), Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Vinnie Colaiuta (ex-Asia, worked with Frank Zappa), Rachel Flowers and many others. There is a 4-disc (2DVD/2CD) release, Fanfare for the Uncommon Man: The Official Keith Emerson Tribute Concert (Cherry Red), with a video of the concert, a second DVD with interviews and other bonus features and a 2CD of the audio, available from 19 Mar. The DVDs are Region free. There is also a download version available. All proceeds (if buying through Cherry Red or the release website) go to the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation. Mixing was by Keith Wechsler (worked with ELP). All video editing had been completed by Mar 2017. The film was premiered on 16 Jan 2020 in Huntington Beach, CA. CD tracks—disc 1:

UK
Curtain Call, the 2015 release of a 2013 live UK show in Tokyo with Eddie Jobson, John Wetton, Alex Machacek and Marco Minnemann, was remixed and remastered for a 19 May 2023 wider re-release. This includes Blu-ray and DVD discs, and Blu-ray Audio in 5.1 Surround Sound.

There was an abortive UK reunion project entitled Legacy. This project began life under the UK name, but then became a Jobson solo project, before being abandoned. Bill Bruford (percussion), Tony Levin (bass), Francis Dunnery, Steve Hackett and others, guested on 1999 recording sessions. While initially involved, Wetton ceased to be part of the project early on, with Aaron Lippert (UKZ) planned to replace him on vocals. Jobson described the concept: "We have taken on the daunting subject of the aftermath of Communism, or of any despotic regime, and the will of the people to survive." In Nov 2006, Jobson said:
an album does need to be an expression of where you are musically, sonically, socially, politically etc. at the time. 'Legacy' was started in 1995 and much of it was conceived then; unfortunately, the sonic choices I would make in 2007 are quite different from the ones I made in 1995. Furthermore, a solo album would be a different animal than a UK album - even if I did compose all of it myself. Songs were written with John in mind, not to mention possible guitar parts for Holdsworth, Fripp and others.

There is also an ownership issue with some of the recordings which will render some performances unusable.

It is clear to me that any usable compositional ideas and performances that, legally, I still have full rights to should be reviewed and probably reworked to reflect twelve years of further technical and musical growth.

And:

But, truth be told... I ran out of steam. At some point, I'll see what I can retrieve.

Let me take this time to apologize to those who did support the project (for whatever length of time), for the disappointment of those anticipating its release, and even to John for my aiming too high and taking too long.


Asked in an Aug 2009 interview about whether we will ever see or hear the project, Jobson said:

I don’t know is the answer to that. I don’t just do things to get it out there and to try and sell records. I do things [...] to continue developing, exploring, learning and growing and trying to be an artist. [...] it gets to the point where I have to ask myself how cost effective is it for me to sit, for even just two months, and pull all this stuff together to try and make something out of it when the music is fifteen or twenty years old and I've kind of moved on to other things. Even though it's interesting how many people are going to bother to buy it? Shouldn't my time be more focused on moving forward? So that’s where I get to a lot.

Having said that some of this footage should probably come out at some point because it's really cool [laughs].


He also said, "I've also got tons of film footage of everybody recording as well. Stuff nobody has even seen. I've got Tony Levin, Bruford, the choir and everybody." To a fan after the 23 Apr 2011 UK show, Jobson said the Legacy material would not be released as an album, but that he is likely to use bits from it, commenting that he had some interesting pieces with Bruford and Hackett. In an Aug 2011 interview, he said:

The process of creating is where my passion is; it is not necessary for me to actually have other people hear it. [...] I worked on the “Legacy” album for years, on and off, and at some point I felt I had got out what I needed to get out of it and I didn’t feel the need anymore to finish it. I had learnt a lot, I had some wonderful experiences, and that had been quite enough for me: going around the world to make it, conducting the Prague Philharmonic, working with the “Bulgarian Women” in a cathedral, singing my music; working in New York with Tony Levin; working in Peter Gabriel’s studio with Steve Hackett and Bill Bruford, filming everything as well – so I had even been learning about video and documentary making. [...]

I’d even written some Bulgarian poems in the archaic style of Bulgarian folk poetry. It led to me working with a professor of Balkan poetry from the university of Boston to create the poems for the Bulgarian choir to sing. People keep asking me ‘why don’t you release it’ or ‘will you ever release it’? The answer is NO, I won’t release it because I never took it to the final stage, the mechanical stage: sequencing the album, mixing everything, making a design for the album cover and getting it all manufactured, making deals with distributors, publishing companies, getting the albums in the shops, you know, that kind of stuff for me is fairly tedious.


Three tracks from Legacy did appear on Voices of Life, the Bulgarian Women's Choir's compilation—details in Yescography.

Archival/online/re-releases
In the 1980s, Jobson worked on a follow-up to his 1983 The Green Album, to be called The Pink Album, but the project was never finished. To a fan after an Apr 2011 UK show, Jobson said he had plans to release the album. Further bits and bobs from Jobson's career have been released through the Zealots Lounge.

UK's "Nevermore" appears on on Bill Bruford's career retrospective 6CD box set Making a Song and Dance: see under Bruford for details.


Sidonie Jordan - Peter Banks' ex-wife, a.k.a. Sydney Foxx

Jordan is still performing. In an interview around Jan 2018, she described her current activities:

I am currently working with a very talented artist/producer/engineer named "Cade Roberts" in Oklahoma for TV and movie sync deals. We are also producing a track together for a wonderful Americana/Alt Country artist named "Edan Archer," and I hope to do more tracks with her and keep working with Cade. I also hope to continue working with Jez Larder from Skyline Studios in the UK, who I have worked with on and off for over 15 years.

[...]

I am planning a track with my old studio mate Ric Parnell from Atomic Rooster/Spinal Tap and am working with Mark Murdock (Cymbalic Encounters and Brand X) [ex-Empire] on some retro tracks he has written.

I presume the reference to Murdock was to Jordan guesting with The New Empire: see under Banks.


Paul K Joyce - orchestrations on The Quest. Website

In a Mar 2023 interview with Yes Music Podcast, Joyce said he was "getting ready to do an album of songs, again with orchestra and a band."

Joyce did the music for the 20-minute film "Land Mine", directed and written by Darren Statman, about a young man returning from Belsen in 1945 to his family home in Poland. The film was shown at festivals in 2022. The soundtrack, Land Mine (Original Short Film Soundtrack), was released digitally on 3 Mar 2023; tracks:

As well as continuing to work in music, Joyce has now turned to writing fiction.


Gary Langan - engineer on 90125

With fellow former Art of Noise members JJ Jeczalik and Anne Dudley, the trio were touring playing an Art of Noise set. Langan and Jeczalik played 2 London dates 4-5 Jan 2023 as Art of Noise: Revision.



Alex Lasarenko - additional keyboards on Union

no current info



Tony
Levin - bass with ABWH and on Union. Homepage; MySpace page

Levin came 2nd in the Bassist category of Prog magazine's 2023 Readers' Poll (which was won by Nick Beggs), up one position on his 2022 result.


One of Levin's main project is Stick Men (YouTube), with Levin (Chapman Stick), Pat Mastelotto (KTU, ex-King Crimson, The Flower Kings; acoustic and electronic drums and percussion) and Markus Reuter (works with Mastelotto; U8 Touch Guitar, live looping). In a May 2020 interview, Levin described how, during the COVID-19 lockdown, he and Reuter were working on ideas for a new Stick Men album: "We're at that first stage of gathering things on our own end. I think he and I are both writing, maybe in my case not feverishly, but we're writing stuff we'll present to the other and also [to] Pat, who has an important say in the music. But pretty much, harmonically, as you can imagine it needs to get set up first by me and Markus. We're in the early stage of trading ideas, and we're also conceptually trying to get a framework for what this will be like."

On 1 Apr 2022, the band released the 30-minute EP Tentacles, written and produced by the band, mixed by Benjamin Schäfer, mastered by Fabio Trentini and with cover design by Hajo Müller. Tracks:
  1. "Tentacles" (6:39)
  2. "Ringtone" (5:57)
  3. "Company of Ghosts" (6:50)
  4. "Danger in the Workplace" (5:32)
  5. "Satieday Night" (4:57)
The band toured again in 2022. They released the 12-track Umeda (Live in Osaka 2022), recorded 14 Jul 2022, on 3 Feb 2023. The album was produced by the band, recorded and mixed by Robert Frazza and mastered by Lee Fletcher. They toured western North America Feb-Mar 2023 and are touring Europe in 2023.


Since 2018, Stick Men have digitally released a large number of official bootlegs through Bandcamp. So far, 5 of these can be downloaded for free.

The Levin Brothers continued to tour in 2022, including US dates in Sep. There is a West Coast tour in Jan 2024 by Band of Brothers, consisting of the Levin brothers, Tony and Pete, and the La Barbera brothers, Pat and Joe.

Levin, guitarist John Petrucci, drummer Mike Portnoy and keyboardist Jordan Rudess made a third Liquid Tension Experiment album, LTE3, released 26 Mar 2021 on InsideOutMusic. There is a video for lead single, "The Passage of Time". The release was in multiple formats: digital, 2LP/CD, 2CD, 2CD + Blu-ray (with 5.1 surround mix and band interview), limited edition boxset with hot pink 3LP + 2CD + Blu-ray + artwork. The album entered the US chart at #109 (1 May) and was also #7 in Album Sales and Current Album Sales, #18 in Rock, #4 in Current Rock, #6 in Hard Rock, and #3 in Current Hard Rock. It made #88 in the UK (29 Apr; #5 in Rock). It was also #5 in Finland, #7 in Germany, #9 in Japan, #10 in Austria, #15 in the Netherlands, #21 in Italy, #82 in France, #53 in Wallonia (Beligum) and #82 in Flanders (Belgium).

In the May 2020 interview, Levin said he was "overdue on a solo album".

King Crimson and related projects


King Crimson's final line-up consisted of Robert Fripp (guitar), Levin (bass, Stick, upright electric bass, backing vocals), Pat Mastelotto (KTU, ex-King Crimson, The Flower Kings; drums, percussion), Gavin Harrison (ex-Porcupine Tree; drums, percussion), Mel Collins (ex-21st Century Schizoid Band, worked with Chris Squire; saxes, flutes), Jakko Jakszyk (ex-21st Century Schizoid Band, worked with Dave Stewart; as "primary vocalist and secondary guitarist", in Fripp's words to him) and Jeremy Stacey (Steven Wilson, ex-The Syn, ex-Squackett, ex-Chris Squire, ex-Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds; drums, percussion, keys). The band's final years were focused on touring the back catalogue with no plans for a studio album, but they did play some new material live.


The band played its final dates in 2021 in North American and Japan. In a Jul 2022 interview, Fripp pretty much ruled out King Crimson ever touring again. In a Mar 2023 interview, Levin said, "when I last was with him [Fripp] — the tour ended in Japan [...] — we had a nice talk about the future and what might happen. His words to me were that he had no plans for King Crimson doing anything else, but he would let King Crimson speak to him if it chose to. I interpreted that to mean there are no plans and probably won't be anything else, but it's not impossible that there might be."

The band's 50th anniversary was to bring "Cosmic FuKc", a documentary by Toby Amies. The documentary includes a live performance done just for the film. The film focuses on the current band, but also includes interviews with Bruford and Belew. In the Sep 2020 interview, Jakszyk said he and Amies felt the film was basically finished earlier in 2020, but then Fripp did two more long interviews with Amies. The film, now titled "In the Court of the Crimson King", has been shown at film festivals, but Fripp said in the Jul 2022 interview that it has received little interest from streaming services, so he and management are looking at either their own streaming release or a DVD box set. There were select cinema showings on 19 Oct 2022 in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands and the US. There was then a streamed showing on 22 Oct 2022 in London with a live introduction by Fripp and a Q&A with director and band members. A 2-disc BluRay/DVD followed 11 Nov 2022 with the film, an early edited version of the film (23 minutes), a performance of "Starless" from the band's final concert in Tokyo, Dec 2021, and four trailers/shorts.

An 8-disc box set was then out 2 Dec 2022, including a 48-page booklet with contibutions from Amies, Fripp and David Singleton, plus photos from Levin and Singleton. Additional video content consists of "Tring: Live in the Studio" (7 tracks) and "Rock in Rio" (7 tracks), plus "Gentlemen of the Road: Backstage with King Crimson" (38 minutes). The last 4 discs are CDs with music from the film soundtrack and beyond, much previously unreleased.

ELO re-launched at a one-off show in Sep 2014, now released as "Live in Hyde Park" (DVD and Blu-ray), and toured subsequently, which produced the Wembley or Bust release (2CD, DVD or Blu-ray), released Nov 2017. ELO played 2018 dates, although I don't have confirmation with Pomeroy and, I think, McDonald and Hornal all still involved. The band played 20 US dates Jun-Aug 2019.

Caravan released the 10-track studio album It's None of Your Business (Madfish) in 2021. The band consists of Pye Hastings (guitar, vocals), Geoffrey Richardson (viola, mandolin, guitar), Jan Schelhaas (keyboards) and Mark Walker (drums), with Pomeory and Jimmy Hastings (flute) guesting.





Steve Porcaro - additional keyboards on "Open Your Eyes" and Union. Official website

Porcaro released his debut solo album, Someday/Somehow, in 2016. The album was co-written and co-produced by Michael Sherwood (worked with Yes, Jon Anderson, ex-Conspiracy; Billy's elder brother). Asked about whether he and Sherwood were thinking of a follow-up in a Jul 2018 interview, Porcaro replied: "Yes, absolutely. I have my own studio; I can record when I want. Given the way the music industry is, I can't survive off my own music, but that doesn't deter me from making new music. Will it be an album or a handful of songs released one at a time? I don't know. I love working with Mike Sherwood [...] I can't wait to do more, and I think I'm writing the best stuff I've ever written." M Sherwood then passed away in late 2019.




In Dec 2022, David Paich (Toto, worked with Jon Anderson, Cher, Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin) said, "I just did an organ solo for Steve P[orcaro] [...] He's working on another solo record."

Porcaro was in Toto, but the band has now reformed with a new line-up based around Steve Lukather and Joseph Williams, and without Porcaro. Porcaro has decided to withdraw from touring and supports Lukather's use of the Toto name.

He continues to do soundtrack work.

Michael Sherwood- backing vocals on Union; Billy's brother. Michael Sherwood's Tangled Web (Homepage)

Michael Sherwood passed away on 5 Nov 2019.

He had been planning to release a 1990s project with Michiko Freemond called Milk, with the band also including Juliana DiMaggio Diaz, Fren Asken, Dean Chrysler Cameron and Robin Bissell.

Michael Sherwood played keys on three tracks of Kurt Michaels' Stones from the Garden, now out: see details under Billy Sherwood, who also appears.

Michael sings lead vocals, with Billy on backing vocals, on "All the Tears That Shine" on the 6-sing EP Forgotten Toys (duration: 29:06) from David Paich (Toto), out 19 Aug 2022 on CD, vinyl and digital. This is an alternative version of the song Michael co-wrote on Toto XIV. Toto's Steve Lukather and Joseph Williams also appear, as does Warren Ham (ex-Toto, ex-Kansas, ex-Ringo Starr), Brian Eno, Ray Parker Jr. and Davey Johnstone (Elton John Band). Paich explained in a Sep 2022 interview:
Only one song dates back to about 2006. I started the riff for “All The Tears That Shine” right after Toto finished Falling in Between. I didn’t get to writing the song until about four years later with Michael Sherwood. I overdubbed the music, essentially something totally new, and crafted it to the guide vocal he did and used it for my album. [...] We are honoring his passing by putting it on the album.
And on Billy Sherwood's contribution: "I reached out to him to see if he had any thoughts about doing a backing vocal. He provided the backgrounds on the last chorus and fills at the end too. It was very moving."

See under Steve Porcaro for more details of Michael's work with Toto. Porcaro had talked of more solo work with Sherwood after Michael and Jimmy Haun had appeared on his 2016 solo album. Michael Sherwood and Haun had also been working on a solo album by Jon Anderson, with long-time collaborator Jonathan Elias, but the project stalled: see under Anderson for details.

Nikki told one fan in Mar 2018 that she was "very involved in a writing a new album". "Gaia (Mother of Heaven)" was released on Bandcamp and as a video to YouTube in Dec 2018. The music was written by Nikki with the late Nigel McLaren and then re-worked by Nikki and Mark J, with a lyric by Nikki. The song is credited to N Squire/Mclaren, produced by Mark J/N Squire, mixed by Mark J, mastered by Kevin Metcalfe and with video production by Laurie Goodwin.

In May 2019, she was reportedly remixing songs from Coming Home, their second album, released 1994. There is also some unreleased Esquire material from over the years which could be released. Nikki was interviewed in Notes from the Edge #232, in which she discussed some other possible forthcoming projects.

Adam Wakeman - Rick's son. Official site; MySpace page; Twitter

Headspace (MySpace page; YouTube channel) consists of Adam Wakeman (keys), Damian Wilson (ex-Rick Wakeman, ex-Jeronimo Road; vocals), Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Lee Pomeroy (ex-Yes featuring Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman, Rick Wakeman, Steve Hackett, Gary Barlow; bass) and Adam Falkner (Rick Wakeman; drums). The band have been working on a third album in a trilogy with All That You Fear is Gone (2016) and their debut, I am Anonymous.

Wilson and Wakeman have also released a series of mainly acoustic albums. Their third album was Stripped, out 2019, with "stripped down Wilson & Wakeman tracks and cover songs". On 29 Mar 2023, Wakeman tweeted, "Writing and recording for the next Wilson & Wakeman begins…" That new album Can We Leave the Light on Longer? was released 12 Jan 2024 on vinyl, CD and digital. It was performed by Wilson (vocals, acoustic guitar) and Wakeman (piano, vocals, Hammond, acoustic & electric guitars, bass, percussion), with also appearances by Pete Riley (drums), George Hogg (trumpet) and an 18-piece choir. Tracks:

  1. "A I" (4:09)
  2. "Can We Leave the Light on Longer?" (3:16)
  3. "The Man from the Island" (4:57), Wakeman on lead vocals
  4. "Let's Talk" (4:20)
  5. "The Battle of the Bare Knuckle Fighter" (5:01)
  6. "Turn Your Life Around" (5:18)

  10. "Addlestone" (3:14)

The duo toured have a 14-date UK support 12 Jan-10 Feb 2024 in support. The 19 Jan show has sold out.

They played 14 dates in England & Wales in Jan 2019. They played the UK further in the summer and in Jan 2020. They were to play a European tour from Apr 2020, but this was postponed given the COVID-19 pandemic, although they did play two Aug 2020 dates. They played 14 western European dates Sep-Dec 2021. Wakeman was also playing songs from his solo album, A Handful of Memories, and "appearing" in his 'Milton Keanes' persona to play material from Jazz Sabbath (see below). They had 20 UK dates 25 Jan-5 Mar 2023.




Adam is behind Jazz Sabbath, a project of jazz covers of Black Sabbath songs. The album (on Black Lake Records) is with Jerry Meehan (bass) and Ash Soan (Rick Wakeman's English Rock Ensemble, Trevor Horn Band, Downes Braide Association, worked with Adele, Seal; drums).

There's a promo video based around a comedy made-up backstory for the band, in which Adam plays 'Milton Keanes', the supposed founder of a 1968 band called Jazz Sabbath. The video features many famous musicians, including Rick Wakeman, Trevor Rabin and Damian Wilson. A follow-up, released 30 Apr 2021, is a supposed bootleg recording from 1968, "Iron Man (Live in London 1968)" (5:19).



A second album, Vol. 2 (Black Lake Records), was released 22 Apr 2022. There was another comedy promo video (with Dylan Howe on drums). Tracks:
  1. "Paranoid", 8 minutes long
  2. "Snowblind"
  3. "Behind the Wall of Sleep"
  4. "Sabbra Cadabra"
  5. "Symptom of the Universe"
  6. "N.I.B."
  7. "Black Sabbath", streaming audio
There was a European Jazz Sabbath tour in 2022, including 27 & 29 Oct in the Netherlands, 30 Oct in Belgium, 11 Nov in Denmark and eight UK dates 16-26 Nov 2022 (including 2 shows in London on 16 Nov, both of which sold out). The band were Adam Wakeman (piano), Dylan Howe (drums) and Jack Tustin (double bass). A full set from a German festival performance is available on YouTube. A live album was due to be recorded in Birmingham (26 Nov 2022) at a special show with guests. At the final encore of the Birmingham show, the line-up was expanded with the addition of Billy Watman (acoustic guitar, who was also the support act for the tour), Jon Spanyol (trombone), Justin Swadling (worked with Captain Sensible, Nik Kerhsaw, Bonnie Tyler, T'Pau, Tony Hadley, Rick Wakeman; sax) and dad Rick Wakeman (keys), as seen in this YouTube video shared by Watman.

Jazz Sabbath tour with 17 dates Nov 2023-Jan 2024, with dates in Norway (3 Nov sold out), Romania, the UK (24 Nov Walton-on-Thames sold out), Belgium (6 Dec Ghent sold out), Germany, the Netherlands and Greece. (I am unclear on whether the line-up is the same as in 2022.)

Some years back, Adam and father Rick were said to have a new piano album expected, but that has yet to appear. Adam joined Rick and vocalist Hayley Sanderson for a late Jul 2021 run at Ronnie Scott's in London. They then played 2 shows in Norfolk in Oct 2022: details under Rick. He also joined both for a short English Rock Ensemble tour in Mar/Apr 2022 and for 2 UK dates in Feb 2023: again, details under Rick. Adam and Sanderson also join Rick for a 21 Jul 2023 show: details under Rick. Adam also appears on a few tracks of Rick's Unreleased Demos Volume 1, with demos from the 1990s: see under Rick.

Adam plays keys and rhythm guitar in Ozzy Osbourne's band, who were touring in early 2019. He played bass with a line-up of Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar) and Tommy Clufetos (drums) — so, sort of Black Sabbath, but they weren't billed as such — at the closing ceremony of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, performing a truncated "Iron Man" followed by "Paranoid".


Adam Wakeman (keys, vocals) is in Snakecharmer, with Neil Murray (ex-Whitesnake, ex-Company Snakes, ex-National Health, ex-Brian May, ex-Jon Lord, ex-Black Sabbath; bass), Laurie Wisefield (ex-Wishbone Ash, ex-Tina Turner; guitars), Harry James (Magnum, ex-Thunder; drums, vocals), Chris Ousey (Heartland, ex-Virginia Wolf; lead vocals) and Simon McBride (lead guitars, vocals). The band perform Whitesnake material and other songs from the members' back catalogues. They played the UK in 2017/8 and have released two studio albums. Those two, remastered and with Japanese bonus tracks, are joined by two live shows recorded in Milton Keynes (on 26 Jan 2014 and 17 Jan 2015) for the 4CD Anthology release, due 28 Oct 2022 on Cherry Red (SOUM500COMP).


Late summer and autumn 2022, Adam toured with Tony Hadley (ex-Spandau Ballet).

Adam Wakeman came 7th in the Keyboardist category of Prog magazine's 2022 Readers' Poll (which was won by Marillion's Mark Kelly).

Steven Wilson - remixing on the Panegyric series of Yes re-releases. Official website; official remixes Facebook page


Wilson remains busy as a solo artist as well as doing remixing for other acts. His most recent album as a solo artist was The Future Bites (Caroline International), out 29 Jan 2021. He spent much of 2022 focusing on a Porcupine Tree reunion with Wilson, Gavin Harrison (King Crimson) and Richard Barbieri (ex-Japan). They released Closure/Continuation in Jun 2022 and toured behind it. The reunion is expected to end with further shows in summer 2023.

Wilson now returns to solo work with a new solo album, The Harmony Codex, out 29 Sep 2023 on Virgin, which includes contributions from Ninet Tayeb, Adam Holzman, Craig Blundell, Nils Petter Molvaer and Nate Wood. Formats include the usual, plus a 3-disc box with the original album on CD, a CD with remixes/reimaginings, and a Blu-ray. In a 2022 interview with friend of the site Innerviews, he described the project thus: "It's much more epic and uncompromising. It's more complex and unpredictable to a degree. [...] It's going to maintain a lot of the musical vocabulary from The Future Bites, but it's going back into a more conceptual world, which is less about concise pop songs and more about experimentation. So, in the most simplistic terms, it might be somewhere between Hand. Cannot. Erase. and The Future Bites, but not like either of those records." In Jan 2023, he tweeted, "Coming in 2023 will be my new album, a 10 track 65 minute musical journey". Tracks:
  1. "Inclination" (7:15)
  2. "What Life Brings" (3:40)
  3. "Economies of Scale" [Wilson/Holzman] (4:17), first single (video)
  4. "Impossible Tightrope" (10:42)
  5. "Rock Bottom" [Tayeb] (4:25)
  6. "Beautiful Scarecrow" (5:21)
  7. "The Harmony Codex" (9:50)
  8. "Time is Running Out" (3:57)
  9. "Actual Brutal Facts" (5:05)
  10. "Staircase" (9:26)
The album made #4 in the UK album chart, and was also #1 in the UK Progressive Albums chart for Oct 2023. The album came top in Prog magazine's 2023 critics' choice and top in the 2023 readers' poll, but it also came 9th in the readers' poll Biggest Disappointment category. Wilson was also 7th in the Best Vocalist and 6th in the Best Guitarist sections of the readers' poll.

Wilson remixed Gentle Giant's Interview, which is being re-released on CD, Blu-ray and 180g vinyl. This made 9th in the reissue section of Prog magazine's 2023 critics' choice. He has also remixed ABC's The Lexicon of Love for a 40th anniversary Blu-ray edition: see under Trevor Horn, the original producer, for more.

Wilson did a new remaster for The Yes Album (Super Deluxe Edition): see details on main page.
