    He shares his name with the drummer from Oasis.
    When John Lennon called and asked him to play at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival (1969), he hung up, thinking it was a prank. ('Thank God he called back.')
    Yes took a one year hiatus after he broke his foot while skating at a roller disco (1979).
    He said about Yes's often cryptic lyrics, 'I've been in this band 40 years and I still don't know what the hell he [Jon Anderson] is talking about.'
    He said about working with Lennon, 'He would just turn around and say, 'Alan, I don't know what you're doing, but keep doing it. It works exactly right.'
    He had just three days between being asked to replace Bruford and the start of the Close to the Edge tour to learn the band's concert set.
    He is often credited as the glue holding Yes together.
    He said, 'I am not a huge fan of labeling music like progressive rock, because I think Yes played their own kind of music.'
