We talk with a man whose group had the very first video on MTV with The Buggles, a 40-plus year career with progressive rock legends Yes, and with the formed in the 80s supergroup Asia, made up of members of Yes, The Buggles, Emerson, Lake, & Palmer, and King Crimson.
Downes and Yes have a brand new package of music dropping this month with the album - Mirror to the Sky.
It makes to have a chat with the Mirror - at the rooftop of the world on the Alaska Highway. The first two singles are Cut from the Stars, and All Connected.
We talk songwriting with rock and roll icons, working in huge bands, what the new Yes album is all about, and working with legendary album cover artist Roger Dean.
