crosshairSend crosshair a message :   Mr. Chantry... no, that's not what I meant.
Main thing I meant was: If I did a Yes poster, I would bust my ass on it and it would be awesome; not for ironic or conceptual reasons, but for reasons of sheer awesomeness. Hear that Yes? Hire me.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   scuze me. it meant to read that jr. cadillac opened for the eagles (not yes). they both opened for yes.
jethro tull in 1970-73 was god.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   yeah, i think that the lead singer is ill at the moment.
first time i saw yes they opened for jethro tull in about 1970. a new band called "the eagles" opened for yes. a local band with old members of the wailers called 'junior cadillac' (from an old norman greenbaum song title) opened for yes. crazy bill.
the concert sucked except tull. i loved tull back then...

ImJustRickGSend ImJustRickG a message :   John a is old. I agree with Dan (about the visual legacy, not the humski offer). BUT! I also agree with Art here... they are riding on a logo and some old Roger Dean visuals. Can't we all get along?   2009-08-17 14:12:25
lil_tuffySend lil_tuffy a message :   I was supposed to do a yes poster but the show got cancelled. I believe this tour was the one with the singer from a Yes tribute band   2009-08-17 14:12:23
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i disagree. i wouldn't change a thing.   2009-08-17 14:11:08
standardSend standard a message :   I see the concept (which isn't great, but okay). But I read it as "YES" followed by a bunch of protesting "no"s. Woulda worked better with the signs up top and the band name at the bottom, methinketh.   2009-08-17 14:09:12
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   omg i love how "butt fuck that in the butt" is becoming a gp saying   2009-08-17 14:08:39
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   crosshair -
so, yer sayin' that if somebody were to make a poster for yes, they are supposed to make it look like roger dean's or hipgnosis's work from 35+ years ago? sorta retro thinking, ain't it?
besides, i think this poster is great for a band like yes, who really hasn't done anything except lean on their logo and a few hits from 35 years ago. playing off the name is all they've been doing for years. it may be more conceptually perfect than you guessed.
and that isn't necessarily letting what i think of the band getting in the way of the message. it's just a reality check. paul gardner -
i make exceptions for you. don't you feel special, now?
"special."

John ASend John A a message :   yes and roger dean were 'cool' when I was smoking pot and drinking mushroom tea like 30 years ago. so were mood rings.
meh.

John ASend John A a message :   yes sucks, roger dean sucks and so does this.   2009-08-17 13:33:45
crosshairSend crosshair a message :   Well, clever or not, I hate it. Mainly due to sour grapes. I mean...given the opportunity to make a poster for one of the most visually-oriented bands of all time, I would feel under such pressure to live up to the Rodger Dean & Hipgnosis standards of imagination and excecution... And this is SO half ass. It's a literal play on the name. It's like that Wolfmother poster. http://www.gigposters.com/poster/86033_Wolfmother.html   2009-08-17 13:22:44
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   another way to look at this is that the wonder of "YES!" dominates and conquers all the negative little "NO's" out there.
we mustn't let our personal opinion of the band interfere with the reality being presented, ya know. it's not right.

Pfahlert Creative LabsSend Pfahlert Creative Labs a message :   agree with standard, odd way to promote in a negative light. it is funny, that's a given.   2009-08-17 12:33:15
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   HA! very funny. great poster.
how come nobody has ever thought of this before?
  2009-08-17 12:21:34
standardSend standard a message :   funny, this strikes me as sort of negative way to promote a band.   2009-08-17 09:59:48
