    Default BOBW a Tribute to Yes????

    I read somewhere a long time ago that BOBW was a Tribute to the group Yes. The main Riff is similarly to the song "Roundabout"

    Watch "Van Halen - Best Of Both Worlds" on YouTube

    No.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I hear it.

    The main riff of BOBW also sounds a lot like "Celebration" by Kool & The Gang and "Highway To Hell" by AC/DC.
