This is a site devoted to the history of Sheffield Rock & Pop music. We all know about the famous bands that come from the Steel City, but we want to devote some space to the bands that nearly made it as well.
Contributions of any kind welcomed – photos, reviews, memories, tickets, flyers, all welcomed. We know most readers will have some memorabilia tucked away in a dusty drawer 😉
The band Yes are still going, despite the loss of the only surviving founder member Chris Squire. They played in Sheffield three times in 1969, 24 February, 12 September 1969 and 21 December – part of the 200 gigs they performed that year. Amazingly, recordings exist of two of these gigs, one listed as the “Kingston Hotel”, but I suspect both are at the Penthouse. I doubt the photo is from there, but you never know.
Have a listen to the tracks, they display an astonishing maturity and musical trechnique, oh to have bene there 😉
