BILLY SHERWOOD is the current bass player in the band YES.
Billy Sherwood was a key part of the line-ups which created the YES albums OPEN YOUR EYES, THE LADDER and was also part of the TALK tour. He recently mixed the band’s HEAVEN AND EARTH album and 2 subsequent DVDs.

Mastered from tapes in the collection of the estate of founder member and guitarist Mark Reale.
