Love Is, Is the latest solo Album from Yes guitarist Steve Howe. Steve has been guitarist in Yes since Close To Edge Album in 1972 and in that time his guitar mastery has entrance millions of fans with his unique style and skill on both electric and acoustic guitars, His harmony vocals also play a supporting role to vocals that make Yes so famous. His incisive guitar work was also heard on the original brace of albums by Asia, especially on the huge radio hit Heat Of Moment, among many other Asian groups he revisited on several occasions over the years, but this new solo album is little different in that it features current Yes vocalist Jon Davison on vocal tracks which comprise five Of albums ten tracks. Jon also provide bass guitar on these same five tracks. In reality, the Album Is All fairly laid back with only a few songs raising pace but, somehow, this doesnt really matter. For what we have here is a master craftsman at work, still striving to push himself forward and make new music that is worthy and has merit. This is certainly the case here, especially on vocal tracks, as these have a real edge to them delivered by Jon Davison. These songs also have a feel of Yes To them, even without the rest of the band onboard. Certainly, one can see It Aint Easy finding a place on Yes Album and it is highpoint of that, just as it is here. Also worth mentioning is the delicate steel guitar on the instrumental Pause For Thought, which shows Steves ' nimble finger work off to great effect, its complex playing proving quite strident, making it one of the better tracks. This playing is quite lyrical really making this song without words and sound very good too! Imagination also has that same strident feel to it, being better for it too. The song has some fine playing by Steve. While his playing here is song cantered and is not focused on showing off on fiery solos, solos that he does deliver are brief and fleeting, aim to fit in with the tone of songs or moods of pieces. In all honesty, this play To strength Of songs as overall album and it is probably best appreciated as such. This is a good album by a great musician and, while there is nothing here that makes you go wow!, If you let music do the talking and you are prepared to listen to it, you will find snatches of real skill and moments of beauty. Like those found in Headlands where Steve finally let rip with some sublime guitar lines backed by some fine acoustic guitar. This song is possibly my favourite album, although I also like See Me Through and Fulcrum, both of which are really satisfying to hear.

Career

Steve Howe, former Dodger relief pitcher whose cocaine and alcohol abuse overshadowed and ultimately tarnished his Major League Baseball career, was killed early Friday morning when he rolled his pickup truck in an unincorporated area of Riverside County east of Palm Springs. He was 48. A single-vehicle accident occurred at about 5: 30 am on westbound Interstate 10, half a mile west of Cactus City rest area in Coachella, according to officials with the Riverside County coroner and a California Highway Patrol News release. For unknown reasons, separate statements released by agencies say, Howes ' pickup truck leaves the roadway, enter median and rolls numerous times before coming to rest on its roof. Howe, not wearing his seat belt and partly ejected from the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene. He had been in Arizona on business and was on his way home to Valencia, business partner Judy Welp told the Associated Press. National League Rookie of Year with the Dodgers in 1980, Howe helped the team win the World Series in 1981, was All-Star in 1982 and later pitched for three other Major League clubs, including the New York Yankees. But the hard-throwing leave-hander probably is best remembered for his drug and alcohol abuse, Howes ' frequent missteps playing a large part in him falling short of his vast potential and making him a reviled figure among unsympathetic fans. He was suspended seven times for violating baseball substance-abuse regulations. Angel Manager Mike Scioscia, former teammate on Dodgers, remembered Howe before Friday night's game at Angel Stadium as a fiery competitor who would blur that line of being cocky and confident and not care. He had that swagger. Clearly, he was a kid who never reached his potential, but for a short time, he did Feeling regret, he never express, as far as I know. Also in Anaheim, Manager Ozzie Guillen of the Chicago White Sox say, Steve was so good, baseball keep him. He gets in trouble all the time. That shows you how good he was that Baseball kept reinstating him. Howe, after Series of transgressions, was released by the Dodgers in July 1985, in part to satisfy his desire to relocate and make a new start. It comes down to fight or flight, Howe told a television interviewer at Time. Certain people in this town had a lack of understanding towards me, and in this situation I chose flight instead of fight. Sign by the Minnesota Twins a little more than a month later, he was still pitching in the major leagues 11 years later despite all his suspensions. The Yankees, on their way to the World Series championship, released him in June 1996. A Two-Time All-Big Ten selection at the University of Michigan, Howe was 47-41 with 91 saves and 3. 03 earn-run average in 12 Major League seasons.

Personal life

Steve Howe was born in London on April 8 1947. When he began playing guitar he had quite a few influences, chief among them Chet Atkins. When you consider that two others were Django Reinhardt and the duo of Les Paul & Mary Ford, it's hard to believe that he would become one of the most influential guitarists in progressive rock. In fact, his first band was a Chuck Berry-infused outfit called Syndicats. He began playing with that group in 1964, and they released several singles before Howe left them. His next band was in Crowd, which eventually became Tomorrow. Under new name, they released two singles in 1967 and a self-title Album the following year. When the group broke up in 1968, Howe joined a band called Bodast. Bodast built up quite a following and recorded an album. However, when their label went bankrupt, their still-unreleased Album was scrapped and the band eventually became casualty, breaking up shortly thereafter. The album would not see release until 1981. After Bodast, Howe begins trying to find his next band. Auditions with such groups as Nice and Jethro Tull were unfruitful. As fate would have it, his next band would come looking for him. By 1970, Howe had caught the ear of several members of Yes. By this time, they had released two albums, but were not happy with their current guitarist, Peter Banks. So, Howe become new guitarist in Yes. The first album he recorded with them was 1970's Yes Album. It would garner them respectable commercial and critical attention, but when the follow-up, Fragile, came out in 1972 with the hit single Roundabout, group and Howe were fully propelled into the limelight. Howe stayed with the band until their break up in 1980. He also released two solo albums during that time, 1976's Beginnings and Steve Howe Album in 1979. After Yes go their separate ways, Howe, along with Yes-mate Geoff Downes, form Asia. The group, also containing John Wetton and Carl Palmer, was something of a progressive rock supergroup. Howe remained with the band through their first two albums, Asia and Alpha, released in 1982 and 1983, respectively. He then left the group, although he has worked with them as guest from time to time since. His next band was GTR, formed in 1986. This group was also a sort of supergroup, featuring both Howe and Steve Hackett. That group didn't stay together long, either, only releasing one studio Album. Give this, it seems fate was pushing Howe back into Yes camp. By this time, several changes had happened with Yes. The group had reunited without Howe and do two very commercial-leaning albums, one of them become group's biggest seller to date. Also, by then, Jon Anderson had once again left the group, citing a desire to do less commercial material. So Yes veterans Bill Bruford and Rick Wakeman form a new band.
