I've always enjoyed hearing Rick Wakeman Talk , he is often very funny without even trying.

He tells some hilarious stories about his travels , one where he got the skitters in Japan once :D

 

This is funny as hell, Rick interviews son Adam :D >

This 'bout had me on the floor, regarding sex with prog rock in the background: "You have to find sections that don't have lots of different time signatures, because there have been extremely nasty accidents....and 13/8's not good...."

 

Then there was his brief rendition of 'Three Blind Mice' in five different keys. Funny man, indeed !

I loved when he said that he rarely gets past the introductions... LOL

I can only imagine the weird personality dynamic within Yes. Can you imagine "Bawdy" Rick in the same room with "New Age" Jon Anderson?

He tells a pretty hilarious story about ordering a big Xmas dinner for himself while all the vegans in the band ate celery stalks, and about how said vegans snuck back one at a time to sample his dinner.

 

From his book "Grumpy Old Rock Star" which I have to find. Love that story!
