The State Of Yes 2011


The crazy thing about following a group for close to forty years is that you tend to get invested, maybe more so than is entirely rational.  As John Lodge of the Moody Blues reminded us, “I’m just a singer in a rock and roll band.”  But when you’ve grown up and begun to grow old as a fan of a particular band, it’s hard not to care, and harder still when circumstances trigger a sense of outrage.  The State Of Yes 2011: Their Morals Disappear is “a story about a lot of things—creativity, ambition, success and conflict—but in the end it really all comes down to one irreducible principal.  It’s a story about friendship, and what can happen when it’s tested.”
