How screwed over is Patrick Moraz?

    Moraz was awesome on Relayer, but it was his only Yes Album, and whenever people talk about the classic Yes lineups, the one involving him is never mentioned.

    His work with the Moodies was good, but they are not getting into the Hall because of their pop rock period when he was in the band, but for their classic era of 1967-192 when he was not in the band.

    here is a recent quote from Geoff downes:

    There`s been many members through the ranks of the band over the years. Are you planning on any former members making guest appearances over the course of the tour?

    Tony Kaye, the original keyboard player, will be joining us on most of the dates this year. When I first got into Yes Tony was one of the guys I really looked up to as he had that gritty Hammond sound and that`s what drew me into Yes on their Time And A Word album, when I was studying for my A-Levels. I have a lot of respect for Tony and what he did in Yes so I`m really looking forward to him being involved not just for what he did in the early period but also when he came back for the 90125 album in the `80`s. I think Trevor Horn may join us on a few dates and maybe Patrick Moraz, who played on Relayer, might make a few appearances too. It`s going to make this 50th anniversary tour something a bit special.

    Anyone interested in Moraz based on Relayer should definitely check out Music for Piano and Drums w/ Bill Bruford. Isn't remotely similar, but a wonderful album nonetheless.

    I'd certainly mention the Moraz lineup whenever I talk about the classic Yes lineups. So would most people I know who like the band.
