CC forgive me for pointing this out. Lenny White played drums for Return to Forever, he is black. Alan White played drums for Yes, he is white. Lenny Black;White, Alan White; White.
Other than that I indeed loved Alan White as well. I played Bass for many years as well as guitar and Chris Squire and Paul McCartney were my biggest bass influences. I used to frequent clubs and guitar stores in Washington, DC which is where I got to meet people like Stevie Ray, John McLaughlin, Neil Geraldo (pat benatars hubbie) Johnny Winter etc. There was a small club called the Cellar Door where i could see Lenny White, Herb Ellis, Sea Level when they first formed, Little Feat, etc. it was a great place to be musically!
How many times did I see Yes? As many times as I saw ELP! Lots!!! I got to see Yes when they did there "in the round" tour where they had a revolving stage and Wakeman hadn't gone off on his own personal deep end with Henry the 8th.
I was always a big ELP fan. My old band did many ELP songs. I had a friend David Wong, a small chinese guy who played guitar and I kid you not sang identically to Greg Lake. It was always disconcerting to play and hear Lake and turn around and see David.
Fripp was an interesting study. A bit on the eclectic side even for me, but 20th century schizoid man was his finest.
If I had the means I would post a sample of my old playing but until then you'll just have to imagine.
