Will Rush's Geddy Lee be sitting in on bass for the late Chirs Squire when Yes performs at it's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction next month?
That's what original Yes singer Jon Anderson told Billboard in an interview published Wednesday afternoon. But not so fast. Late Wednesday the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame issued a statement to Billboard saying that Lee and Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson "were only confirmed to do the induction speech for one of their favorite bands and not perform."
Of course, Lee will be there at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on April 7 for the ceremony, so, maybe, confirmed or not, he could be prevailed upon to strap on a bass to play Squires' famous part on "Roundabout" as Anderson said.
Last month, Anderson -- who left Yes in 1980, but returned to work with the band off and on in the '80s and '90s -- told ABC Radio about what the band, which had so many lineup changes over the years, was planning. "We'll probably do a Yes with [former guitarist] Trevor [Rabin] doing 'Owner [of a Lonely Heart],' and then Yes with [longtime guitarist] Steve [Howe] doing 'Roundabout.' And then we'll all get together and play a song together. Something like that," he said.
Highlights from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air as an HBO special on April 29.
Metallica's track "Dream No More," which appears on their new album Hardwired...to Self-Destruct, made its live debut over the weekend during the band's show in Mexico City. In case you weren't at the show, you can watch official footage of the performance now on YouTube.
"Now something really heavy," frontman James Hetfield said before launching into "Dream No More."
Metallica played three shows in Mexico City last week in support of Hardwired...to Self-Destruct. "Dream No More" made its debut during the final show of the run on Sunday, March 5, which also featured an on-stage collaboration between Metallica and Iggy Pop.
Metallica will be touring stadiums across the U.S. this spring and summer in support of Hardwired...to Self-Destruct, starting May 10 in Baltimore.
