    Yeah. I guess I'm at that age now where all my heroes will start disappearing one by one. I do love me some Yes, that's for sure.

    Thank you Alan for your contribution to music history.

    At the age of six, White began playing the piano.
    He later switched to drums and was a member of several local bands by the age of 13.

    Got to shake that man's hand. Told him he was the only person to upstage a Beatle with his drumming on Instant Karma. He just chuckled.

    Yes is my father's favorite band. They were the first concert I ever saw, and I've seen the band and their various side projects with my dad countless times since I was a kid. This one hits me in a strangely personal way. May he RIP

    His playing on Gates of Delirium was incredible, RIP.

    This hurts. I met him on several occasions and he was a prince of a guy, one of the most down to earth "rock stars" you'd ever meet. And especially in that band... cough cough. But years of drinking hard left him a little frail. RIP Alan, one of the best.

    I suspected you'd have crossed paths with him a few times. I didn't know he was a big drinker. I knew Chris loved his Cognac. Saw him in full flight one night where his storytelling made Rick look invisible.

    I attended a Drum Clinic that Alan gave at a NAMM show back in the 90's. It was fascinating. Just a little sound booth on the show floor with about 6 people. That and I've seen Yes in concert 9 times. R.I.P.

    R.I.P Alan. So many of us old time baby boomers are leaving, one day it will be our turn.

    His playing on YES's 90125 album impacted me as a drummer.
