The London-based prog-rock band Yes have rotated members more than a few times during its long career. But their classic lineup -- including singer Jon Anderson, drummer Bill Buford, guitarist Steve Howe, bassist Chris Squire and keyboardist Rick Wakeman -- was in place by the early '70s for their string of hit albums (which include 'Fragile' and 'Close to the Edge'). Over the years, such rock luminaries as Peter Banks, Tony Kaye, Alan White, Trevor Horn, Geoff Downes and Trevor Rabin have been a part of the group. After a brief disbandment in 1980, Yes reformed in 1983 and reached No. 1 with 'Owner of a Lonely Heart,' their only chart-topping single, By the end of the '80s, Anderson was gone. The band continues to record and tour today with a new singer.
