R.I.P Alan White

My first recollection was the Yes Songs double album. It was like "whoa, where did this guy come from?" Less tactile than Bruford but with more power with chops to match. It's like the band didn't miss a beat. Will be sadly missed.

So sad to learn of his passing. I hadn’t heard, so somewhat shocked here. But a great drummer and wonderful contribution to the band. I have seen Yes many times with both Alan and Bill and both played at a level that never left you wishing the other was playing. A tremendous loss to the music world and may his soul rejoice in heaven.
