Audio: Yes drummer Alan White recalls historic sessions with John Lennon, George Harrison and Joe Co

Since 1972, drummer Alan White has been best known for keeping the beat for British prog-rock titans, Yes. He'll be with his main band on Sunday, March 3, at Seattle's Moore Theatre as the group performs not one, not two, but three of its most critically acclaimed albums, “The Yes Album,” “Close to the Edge” and “Going for the One."

We'll have a related story in this week's print edition. Until that hits the streets, you can listen to this outtake from our interview with White, a longtime resident of east King County. He's played with a ton of classic rock acts, and we asked him about some of his favorite non-Yes recordings which jarred memories of historic sessions with John Lennon, George Harrison and Joe Cocker.
