Perpetual Change - Thirty Years of Yes

About the Book


David pens some notes for the book
Perpetual Change has been years in the making and has been a long-held dream for David Watkinson. The book that David envisioned is one that is purely for Yes fans and most importantly it is written by a fan! The book itself contains a wealth of detail while remaining true to its original aim of providing a visual history of Yes. It is split into three major sections or themes;

Yes History

Yes Live

Yes Collectables


Yes History

Stand on hills of long-forgotten yesterdays.

Surely very few bands have as rich and deep a history as Yes. Through a myriad of line-up changes and more albums than a score of modern bands can put together Yes have continued to astound, memorise, delight and in all honesty at times frustrate their fans. Yet somehow the more things have changed the more they have stayed the same. . . Many great musicians have brought their talents to the band and each has left his own unique stamp on the music.
