TOTO 'All In' Liner Notes PDF Available For Free Download

Artist: 
Categories: 
 
As many would be aware, I had the great honor of writing the complete liner notes for the TOTO box set 'All In', which celebrated the band's 40th Anniversary. Released earlier in the year, the box set has completely sold out and there is now a budget CD-Only version available. The liner notes were not included in the CD-Only release, but I'm excited to announce that the band and Sony Music have agreed to make available a PDF liner notes only version of the book for free download.
 
I hope you enjoy reading the album by album essays as much as I did writing them.

The Royal Affair Tour An Unforgettable And Historic Night Of British Rock

Artist: 
Categories: 
 
YES, Asia, John Lodge of The Moody Blues and Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy with guest vocals by Arthur Brown--all together for the first time--are now rolling across North America on the must-see best-of-British-rock tour, "The Royal Affair Tour." Exciting highlights of the tour, including collaborations and reunions, are listed below.
 
Headlined by prog rock pioneers and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees YES, the trek launched June 12 in Bethlehem, PA and wraps Sunday, July 28 in Saratoga, CA. It's an unforgettable, historic and seamlessly flowing evening with 3 ½ hours of music by legendary artists who've sold over 150 million albums combined, adding up to excellent value for the ticket price. The concert experience includes high-definition video walls with archival clips that illustrate the historic importance of the music. Fans can also check out areas of each venue where the artwork of Roger Dean--whose masterful artwork has graced classic album covers and posters, most prominently by YES and Asia--is exhibited, with Roger on hand to sign merchandise.
 
See below for the full list of tour dates and go to www.yesworld.com/live for ticketing information plus meet-and-greet/VIP packages.
View the tour trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkN5R1Gh7Po. Read the launch press release here.
 
On "The Royal Affair Tour," YES--Steve Howe (guitar--joined 1970), Alan White (drums since 1972), Geoff Downes (keyboards; first joined in 1980), Jon Davison (vocals since 2011) and Billy Sherwood (guitar/keyboards in the 1990s and the late Chris Squire's choice to take over bass/vocals in 2015), with Jay Schellen on additional drums--is playing an expansive set that underlines their legacy as the most enduring, ambitious and virtuosic progressive band in rock history. The set includes their signature songs "Roundabout," "I've Seen All Good People," "Siberian Khatru" and their immortal cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "America" plus various songs they haven't performed in years like "The Gates of Delirium" and "Rhythm of Love."
 
The tour's highlights include:

As part of the evening's British theme, YES is performing their interpretation of John Lennon's "Imagine." YES drummer Alan White played on the song's original recording and other Lennon solo material. The video montage for "Imagine" includes rare archival footage of John Lennon and George Harrison with Alan White.

Asia is playing their signature songs (as they pay tribute to their late founding member John Wetton). Original members Carl Palmer and Geoff Downes of YES are joined by the new line-up featuring guitarist/lead vocalist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (formerly of Guns N' Roses) and bassist Billy Sherwood of YES. A portion of their set features original guitarist Steve Howe of YES in a special performance. Featured are such ASIA classics as "Only Time Will Tell" and "Heat of the Moment," alongside ELP's "Lucky Man" and "Video Killed The Radio Star" by The Buggles (which Downes co-founded).

John Lodge's set encompasses his classic hits by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Moody Blues and pays tribute to the band's recently departed member Ray Thomas. Notably, Jon Davison of YES joins Lodge in his set for a riveting version of the Moodies classic, "Ride My See-Saw."

Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy reignites the music he made famous in Emerson, Lake and Palmer and remembers late members Keith Emerson and Greg Lake. Joining his band on vocals is shock-rock pioneer Arthur Brown. The set features a lethal, show-stopping version of the 1968 chart-topping smash, "Fire," by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, for which Palmer was the drummer in his pre-ELP days.
