Backstage Pass: A trip to Asia and beyond with Steve Howe

In August 2001, when this interview took place, Yes guitarist Steve Howe had just released his first all-acoustic solo studio album, Natural Timbre. In addition, he had recently helped out on two tracks on Asia’s Aura LP.

Known for his clever, imaginative guitar work, Howe remains one of the most influential guitar players the progressive-rock genre has ever produced. And he had a lot to say about Yes and the band’s bold fashion statements, his work on Queen’s “Innuendo” and his time in Asia.
