Anderson, Jon

Following his departure from Yes in 1979, Jon Anderson enjoyed a degree of success in the UK with a string of solo releases and a good touring band, "The New Life Orchestra". His concurrent work with Greek keyboardist Vangelis would even eclipse that success. Yet by 1983, Anderson would return to Yes, where he would remain, in one form or another, the voice of Yes.

Le plus grand groupe de rock francais, and we'll pretty much agree. Ange's completely original and unique take on the "progressif" is most definitely and definitively French. Led by vocalist Christian Decamps.

Always driven by Vincent Crane's keyboards, Atomic Rooster road a firm line between the hard and progressive. Crane and drummer Carl Palmer, first together in Arthur Brown's band, made one album before Palmer was off to ELP. The band hit their stride however after John DuCann and Paul Hammond joined. They released two albums in 1971, with vocalist Pete French joining for In Hearing of, generally regarded as their best. That didn't last, as the band was always beset with personnel changes.
