This is the place where we will post your stories about the Green's Playhouse, The Glasgow Apollo and Satelitte City (The Wee Apollo). As it develops we will break the stories up into sections such as Myths, Gigs I missed, Meeting the Bands, Where are they now etc. No story too trivial and we will only edit out bad language!

New Forum structure on Apollomemories soon.

Saw them twice first with the old crew and then with the Buggles!  I remember when Trevor Horne started playing Video killed the Radio star. The BOO's were deafening and rightly deserved.

I saw them a couple of times. The gigs with Anderson, Howe etc were wonderful but I also sadly recall the "Buggles" version and the nightmare of Trevor Horn trying to hit Jon Anderson's high notes. Why did I even bother? [reply]
 
Sorry to have brought up the Buggles version earlier.

My most memorable Yes gig was during the November shows in 1977 on the Going for the One tour. Incredible musicianship and stage presence and my favourite band line-up. Even the solos seemed faultless. I recall Chris Squire playing a four neck Rickenbacker, and Steve Howe having a mandolin on a stand in front of him which he played with his three-neck guitar still over his shoulders. Flash gits! We were pretty close to the front and I remember catching Chris Squires eye for a few seconds as I yelled out Come on the Yes at the top of my voice.

The Apollo crowds in those days were musics equivalent to the Hampden Roar.
