Steve Howe
« on: September 20, 2016, 05:33:19 PM »
Stephen James "Steve" Howe (born 8 April 1947) is an English musician and songwriter. He is best known as the guitarist in the progressive rock band Yes. He has also been a member of the Syndicats, Bodast, Tomorrow, Asia, and GTR, as well as having released 19 solo albums as of 2010.

Howe declined offers from both The Nice and Jethro Tull while waiting for a record deal to materialise for Bodast, but the group's prospective label went bankrupt. He was then approached by the members of Yes as a possible replacement for Peter Banks, who had appeared on the group's first two albums.

Howe was voted "Best Overall Guitarist" in Guitar Player magazine five years in a row (19771981) and in 1981 was the first rock guitar player inducted into the Guitar Player Hall of Fame.

Here's a little of Steve's Work:

Here is some cool Steve Howe stuff pre Yes.

Tomorrow (previously known as "The In Crowd, and before that "Four Plus One) was a band Steve Howe was in along with Keith West, John Wood and John Alder in the late sixties. They did not receive much commercial success but were among the first psychedelic bands in England, along with Pink Floyd and Soft Machine. Tomorrow recorded the first ever John Peel show session on BBC Radio 1 on September 21, 1967. The band released three singles as "The In Crowd, followed by two singles and one full length album in 1968 as Tomorrow. A compilation of mostly unreleased material entitled "50 Minute Technicolor Dream" was released in 1998.

Another band that Steve Howe was a member of pre Yes was Bodast. This band was active in 1968 and 1969. The band featured Steve Howe, Bobbie Clarke, Dave Curtis and Clive Maldoon. They recorded an album in 1968 but their record label Tetragrammaton  (label of the first few Deep Purple records) went out of business before scheduling a release date, the album never saw the light of day until it was released in 1981.

This stuff really shows where Steve would soon go with Yes.

 The Wurm section of Starship Trooper was built from an earlier Bodast song called Nether Street, check it out
