For god's sake, the sitar part he played on the album was ultra-simplistic. It's a creative album but made with minimal skills on a wide range of instruments.

"Owner of a Lonely Heart" was a terrible video and mediocre song, and the low point of Yes's career. Talk about something interesting, like Tales from Topographic Oceans. Now that's a work of art!

Had to ditch the Trunk podcast after listening to Rock Talk. When all my childhood heroes get into real conversations with Mitch it's entertaining and brings back memories. Mitch isn't stuck constantly bragging about who he knows , what he does or where he's been. He just knows the music the history the stars and shares all that with his audience. By far one of the best shows to listen and learn while enjoying the subject and realness of the artist.
