We'll remember drummer Alan White, who passed away Thursday at age 72. White is perhaps best remembered as the drummer for English progressive rock band Yes, having joined the band in 1972 and having played on the group's most commercially successful album, 1983's 90125. He also performed with John Lennon (including on Lennon's hit "Imagine"), George Harrison, and Beatles/Rolling Stones collaborator Billy Preston.
We'll hear music from throughout his career on this episode of Strange Currency.
