#Quote
1I can walk to the disco, boom boom boom, a rave thing and I dig it but I'm not going to go into the bloody room! You know what I'm saying?
2I wanted to be a musician surrounded by musicians that care. I wanted, personally, to go along that path of inventiveness and adventure in music.
3You spend hours creating it and just because it wasn't a hit record because it just happens to be 15 minutes long doesn't mean it's a bad piece of music or wasn't worth the trip. [speaking about Yes music]
#Fact
1Friends with Monty Python's Eric Idle, they lived close to each other in the late 1970s. Eric sang 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' to Jon shortly before Life of Brian (1979) was filmed, to see what he thought of it.
2Lived in Seer Green, Buckinghamshire in the mid 1970s, the house was previously occupied by Val Doonican.
3He has three children. Youngest is the multi-talented singer Jade Anderson. Eldest is singer and photographer Deborah Anderson. Son Damion Anderson is also a musician.
4Contributed vocals to a song on the 1971 King Crimson album "Lizard".
5Anderson had no formal musical training, rather he gained his vocal talents from singing along to old records.
6Lives in the seaside town of San Luis Obispo, California.
7Musician famous for his work in Yes and with Vangelis.
