Creator/JossWhedon named his production company Creator/MutantEnemy after a line from "And You And I".I".
** [[Music/KingCrimson Robert Fripp]] is a fan of the band, saying that Yes was one of the few of his progressive rock contemporaries he actually liked.


* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Talk'' has only ever had two printings (the initial release in 1994 and a limited re-release in 2002), which means getting a CD of ''Talk'' involves finding a used copy or paying inflated prices for the scarce amount of new ones. And if you want to TakeAThirdOption and buy the mp3 version? It turns out ''Talk'' has never had a legitimate digital release, and is not available in full even on streaming sites like Spotify (some of the album used to be available, but as of September 2014 it's vanished entirely).

Added DiffLines:

** Steven Wilson's 2017 remix of ''Relayer'' does not feature the infamous percussion rig used in the 'battle' section of "The Gates of Delerium". Apparently, it was recorded directly overtop of the final finished master, and thus was not available as its own separate track for proper remixing. Either way, this trope is mostly averted, as the blu-ray version of this album includes both the 2017 and original versions; and pressings from other years are still in circulation.


** Rick Wakeman contributed keyboards to several Music/DavidBowie albums: ''Music/SpaceOddity'', ''Music/HunkyDory'' and ''Music/TheRiseAndFallOfZiggyStardustAndTheSpidersFromMars''. Bowie offered him a permanent spot in his backup band, but Wakeman chose to join Yes instead. Tony Kaye was part of Bowie's band for his 1976 Isolar tour.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreKiller: ''Tales From Topographic Oceans'' soured a lot of critics and fans on progressive rock as a whole.


** Althougth over 40 years removed from Yes, Peter Banks apparently had several projects in the pipeline when he died in 2013

** Music/TrevorRabin has had a decent career in scoring, doing the soundtracks for films like ''{{Film/Armageddon}}'', ''Film/NationalTreasure'', ''Film/ConAir'' (alongside Mark Mancina), and ''Film/RememberTheTitans''. "Titan's Spirit" from the last of these has been [[RecycledSoundtrack recycled]] for Creator/{{NBC}}'s coverage of the UsefulNotes/OlympicGames and UsefulNotes/BarackObama's acceptance speech after winning the 2008 U.S. presidential election. Rabin is part of producer Creator/JerryBruckheimer's ProductionPosse at this point, having scored or co-scored thirteen of Bruckheimer's films. In total, he has more than forty film score credits, though some were collaborations with other composers. He's taken a break to focus on Yes with Anderson, Rabin, and Wakeman, though.

** Also most of the participants of ''Union'', due to the overproduction, ExecutiveMeddling and replacement of band contributions with that of session musicians and computer editing in post-production. Rick Wakeman famously calls it "Onion" [[IncrediblyLamePun as it brings tears to his eyes]] and he said that when he first heard it, he chucked the CD out of his limo and only has heard one other time since. He also famously quipped, "The only person that didn't play on this album was [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments my dog]]". Bill Bruford simply said it was "just awful". The tour supporting ''Union'' in 1991 only included up three of its songs in the setlist, and only one, "Saving My Heart", appears on the ''Union Live'' album, which wasn't released until ''ten years later''. It is more a document for fans of the "mega-Yes" lineup of that time than for the ''Union'' album itself.

** On Chris Squire's death, Jon Anderson said this about him: "Chris had such a great sense of humor... he always said he was [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader to my Obi-Wan]]. I always thought of him as Christopher Robin to my Franchise/WinnieThePooh."
** Anderson counts as well, writing a song called [[Literature/StarshipTroopers "Starship Trooper"]].
** Geoff Downes describes himself as a "computer nerd" in his Website/{{Twitter}} bio. His first tour with Yes includes a Fairlight CMI computer keyboard in his rig.
