The Purple Pinup Guru Platform

When purple things are pulsating on your mind, I'm the one whose clock you want to clean. Aiding is Sparky, the Astral Plane Zen Pup Dog from his mountain stronghold on the Northernmost Island of the Happy Ninja Island chain, this blog will also act as a journal to my wacky antics at an entertainment company and the progress of my self published comic book, The Deposit Man which only appears when I damn well feel like it.

Today let the festivities commence! vocalist and chief poomba lyricist of Yes turns 61 today. Jon is currently on a " Works in Progress" tour on the American East Coast where he is performing brand new material along with some of his earlier solo works including material he's written with Vangelis and Kitaro with gems going way back to his first 1976 solo album "Olias of Sunhillow". Of course there will be the traditional Yes sing along at camp songs like And You and I, Roundabout, and Owner of a Lonely Heart for the audience to allure themselves.

Jon Anderson - 61. Jeez, that's a full two decades ahead of the PP Guru. But thanks Jon, for not including any West Coast for this tour. It's not like the PP Guru's paltry non-existent salary could afford it anyway. It really means a lot to the PP Guru.

Jon Anderson

Jon Anderson (born October 25, 1944) is a British musician, the lead singer of the progressive rock band Yes.

He was born as John Roy Anderson in the town of Accrington, Lancashire, England, his parents being Albert and Kathleen Anderson. (He was later to drop the "h" from his first name.) He attended St. John's Infants School in Accrington, and made a tentative start to his musical career at an early age by playing the washboard in "Little John's Skiffle Group", which played songs by Lonnie Donegan among others.

Anderson left school at the age of fifteen, and went through a series of jobs including working as a farm hand, a lorry driver, and a milkman.

In 1962, Anderson joined The Warriors (also known as The Electric Warriors), where he and his brother Tony shared the role of lead vocalist. He quit this band in 1967, released two solo singles in 1968, and then briefly sang the bands The Gun and The Open Mind.

In the summer of 1968, Anderson joined a group called Mabel Greer's Toyshop, which also included bassist Chris Squire and guitarist Peter Banks. Anderson fronted this band, but ended up leaving again before the summer was over. Anderson, Squire, and Banks went on to form Yes, with drummer Bill Bruford and keyboardist Tony Kaye. Their debut album was released in 1969.
