I have no objection to the recent change to include Oliver Wakeman and Benoît David atop the list. However, David's name should not precede long-standing members such as Squire, Howe and White. This, in my opinion, should take precedence over alphebetizing the list. 2tuntony (talk) 09:09, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Studio Albums

I'm pretty sure both Keys albums used to be listed among the studio albums. Now only the second one is. I believe the first should be as well. It contains just under half an hour of then-new studio material, which is more than a typical EP and at least in some genres is, or was historically, considered enough for an album. Even if we look no further than the Yes catalog, it isn't that much less than Close to the Edge. Besides, the list looks a bit silly with the "sequel" listed but not the original. I believe both volumes of KTA should be listed in both the studio and live categories. (talk) 20:26, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Keys to Ascension's total length consists of 116 minutes including 29 minutes of then-new studio materials. So the new materials are about only 25% of the whole album. In other words, only 2 songs on 9 pieces of the album are studio recordings.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:03, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

List of members

Defining who is and isn't a member of Yes is tricky, but I think listing Tony O'Reilly and Tom Brislin as 'Additional touring musicians' conflates two people who were in very different situations, and also the subheading of "Additional touring musicians" takes up far too much room.

Good call. (I had noticed this several times, but never managed to make my way to this talk page.) Now: What about Eddie Jobson? Jobson's "tenure" in Yes was, I believe, even shorter than O'Reilly's. Joefromrandb (talk) 07:12, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
They were both in Yes for a few months, but O'Reilly was gigging regularly, while Jobson just did a couple of rehearsals and shooting for the "Owner of a Lonely Heart" video. They are both marginal cases. I wouldn't complain if they were 'demoted' in the list. Bondegezou (talk) 07:49, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
Just curious: I removed O'Reilly and Brislin, per your previous suggestion, yet I now see that Brislin was one of 3 you recently returned as "relevant". We obviously agree on O'Reilly and Jobson. What is your position on Brislin? Should he be in or out? Joefromrandb (talk) 02:09, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
I think the design 5 years ago when I made that comment -- as seen here -- was silly and gave too much emphasis to them. Having them as additional links in the Related Articles line seems sensible. Bondegezou (talk) 13:49, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
