Billy Sherwood Brought Back Into the Yes Fold
Billy Sherwood has returned to the fold as a second engineer on Yes' new studio project.
On his Facebook page Sherwood announced: “Got a phone call from the Yes camp tonight, asking me to engineer the backing vocal sessions for their new record. Got a phone call from the Yes camp tonight, asking me to engineer the backing vocal sessions for their new record. Tomorrow I start with Jon Davison, Squire comes in later in the day to sing, Steve Howe after that and so on for the next week or so... As Pacino said in Godfather 3 "They keep pulling me back in !!" lol. Looking forward to seeing the lads tomorrow, viva la YES”
Sherwood's Yes credentials cannot be denied. He started as a song-writing partner of Squire's before the Union album. He later appeared on the Talk tour, mixed both Keys to Ascension albums, then worked on Talk and The Ladder. He also formed Conspiracy with Squire and toured briefly as the Chris Squire Experiment (with Alan White and Steve Porcaro). He also formed Circa with Tony Kaye.
Sherwood has also been prolific on his own, working on different projects as producer, musician, or engineer.
