Steve Howe: Anthology
Close to the edge: Keith Levene reviews the Yes guitarist’s incredible solo output.
When I was 17, I co-founded The Clash. The ‘only band that mattered’ was on the path to fame and fortune. Then I left. Why? I blame Steve Howe!
At the age of 15 I’d roadied for Yes. I experienced a world-class guitarist and band up close night after glorious night. When you’re used to the best, you want nothing less. Later on, I therefore endeavoured to integrate prog and post-punk-type sensibilities (and synths!) with The Clash, but it was a thankless task.
