Yes to be Inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

“Does it really happen?” YES it does. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame decided to “awaken” finally. The pre-eminent progressive rock group of the 1970s will be enshrined in its walls “soon.”

Whenever I’ve said Yes deserve an induction, people told me, “’Leave it’ go.” I replied, “’Hold on.’ ‘It can happen.’” Now “we have heaven.” “I would’ve waited forever.” I’m just glad it occurred before the “turn of the century.”

I’d go through “remembering” Progressive Rock royalty such as Genesis, Pink Floyd and Rush getting enshrined in the hall. “I get up, I get down” about it since Yes couldn’t claim the same honor. That oversight brought me “close to the edge.”

Now that they’re in, I’m at the “gates of delirium”! This news helped to “lift me up.” It sure put me in a great “mood for a day.”

I have “real love” for Yes’ music. There are no “parallels” to its complexity.  I feel like an “astral traveler”, a “starship trooper” if you will, on a “sound chaser” mission whenever I listen to it. The lyrics tell such “wondrous stories,” too.

This band’s “survival” astonishes me. It certainly took a “roundabout” way to stay on the music scene. Their line-up’s “perpetual change” has been a source of jokes for decades. But when judged by the end result, guys: “yours is no disgrace.”

If I may borrow a title from a Yes song: “Without Hope You Cannot Start the Day.” I’ve wanted the “ancient ritual” of thinking “I am waiting” “to be over.” “Then” “I’ve seen all good people” at the Hall. I thank them for making “your move.” All the “disillusionment” is behind me. The fans can now “rejoice”! I’ll be having “sweet dreams” of a lot of hands coming together in “the clap” until the band is formally enshrined. Now it’s “onward” to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for Yes.
