Merry Xmas from Fragile

Fragile would like to wish Yes fans across the world every happiness for the coming holiday season. For Yesheads in the UK the last Year of the millenium promises to be an exciting one. Of course Yes themselves will be touching down in February with the Homeworld Tour. But Fragile will also be very much in evidence once Yes have departed with gigs being lined up across the UK. And of course if you're in London you can catch Fragile in January just a few short weeks away!

New keyboard player joins Fragile

Fragile are very pleased to announce that their search for a new keyboard player to replace Paul McGinley is over. Since Paul announced his plans to leave the band to pursue other interests they have been auditioning potential replacements. During the auditions they appear to have unearthed a real gem in the form of Gonzalo Carreras who has previously played with members of Jethro Tull and other established proggers. More details about Gonzalo will appear soon on the band members page. Gonzalo will be brought into the live act some time after the January gigs with Paul standing in until then.

Dave Rollins Joins Fragile

Dave Rollins, formerly of the versatile tribute band Kudos has now officially joined Fragile replacing former guitarist Micho Correa who has left the band to concentrate on his solo playing. Fragile are very excited to have Dave on board and will spend the rest of the year routining him into the band and extending the set list. By all accounts Dave is learning the material at a "frightening" pace. The parting with Micho was amicable and Fragile would like to wish him well with his solo plans.

New keyboard player needed!

Fragile are seeking a permanent replacement for Paul McGinley who is leaving the band in the near future to concentrate on other musical projects and commercial interests. A keyboard player with the wizardry of Rick Wakeman, the throbbing organ of Tony Kaye, the abstract textures of Moraz, the soundscapes of Downes, and the analogue chirps, bleeps, and piano thrills of Khoroshev, is now required!. If you love YES music and want to be part of the UK's most unique classic rock tribute band, get in touch!". Fragile have great plans for 2000 including further live recordings, a studio based recording project, and increased live gigging across the UK.Fragile wish to emulate the success of Re-genesis and others, and establish the band as a top live attraction not only here in the UK, but elsewhere in Europe. So don't join yet another Genesis tribute, pop into the Universal Garden that is YES music and all things YES!If you fit the bill, then please contact us: yes.fragile@which.net
