Jon Anderson

 

 Jon Anderson attended St. John's Infants School in Baxenden, Accrington. There he made a tentative start to a musical career playing the washboard in Little John's Skiffle Group, which played songs by Lonnie Donegan, among others.

 

  He left school at the age of fifteen and went through a series of jobs including farm hand, lorry driver and milkman. Anderson tried to pursue a football career at Accrington Stanley F.C., but at 5 feet 5 inches (1.65 m) tall, Anderson was turned down

because of his frail constitution. He remains a fan of the club.

  In 1962, he joined The Warriors who were also known as The Electric Warriors, where he and his brother Tony shared the role of lead vocalist. He quit this band in 1967. 

  He went on to release two solo singles in 1968 under the pseudonym Hans Christian, and then briefly sang for the bands The Gun and The Open Mind. One of Anderson's first producers at EMI was songwriter Paul Korda.

  Joining the band Yes, his song writing continued to flourish which is demonstrated on the proclaimed album "Yessongs". He has latterly worked and collaborated with Greek composer Vangelis.
