We're pleased to have spent some time with YES over the last several tours and are incredibly flattered by
the following comments! These photos are from the Ladder tour.
After the Pittsburgh show, Melissa was introduced to Jon Anderson by Alan White. (YES she was in heaven)
Alan asked Jon if he knew whose hand he was shaking , (of course he didn't) Alan then said, " This is
the one who sounds just like you." Jon replied," Oh, I've heard your recording, and I really
We were able to spend time with Chris after 4 different shows and it was quite an experience! He watched
a video tape of ENVISION and was very complimentary. He said we should go to Las Vegas and "make a
ton of money". Hmmmm...
Melissa was so excited to finally meet Steve. When she introduced herself, he smiled
and said he knew who she was! He thanked her for doing such a good job on such tough music, saying that
he knew how hard their music was. He said he has listened and watched video of the band and, "found
it very enjoyable. It's amazing how well you've managed to decipher what we did". He wished her luck
and hoped to hear more from ENVISION in the future.
When Matt met Alan in Cleveland after the show, he said with a smile, "Oh, so you are the one!
You guys are very good, is your lead singer here?" Matt introduced Alan to Melissa, and the first
thing Alan White ever said to her was, "You sound too much like Jon!" (beem me up Scottie...)
He is truely one of the sweetest people on the planet! It is beyond amazing that M&M not only met
everyone in YES, but were priviledged enough to spend time connecting.
Melissa: "I'm in heaven!" Can you blame me? Some moments I'll never erase from
memory - Alan hugging me and saying ,"you seem like such a wonderful person, I just like
you..." Steve smiling when he hears who I am....Jon remembering who I am, a miracle
indeed!!...Matt playing Igor's keyboards in Philly prior to the show....Jon giving me a peace
sign from stage and smiling at me...the end of the Philly show when Chris and Alan, much to
Jon's amusement, kept extending the ending of Roundabout because I was in the front challanging
them with a fake drum roll thang, and we were all smiling, laughing & interacting, it was the BEST!
