I had just left Yes and had done a concert at Crystal Palace, South London, with a choir and orchestra playing my solo album ‘Journey To The Centre Of The Earth’ when I had my heart attack. That day, I hadn’t been to bed for four days. I don’t remember much. I felt very numb during the day and airy, which is the best way to describe it.Rick Wakeman

I was in and out of Yes six times. Someone once likened it to Liz Taylor and Richard Burton’s marriage where we couldn’t live with or without each other. There’s an element of truth, and I last left in 2005.Rick Wakeman
