Mabel Greer's Toyshop
Bio / info
Mabel Greer's Toyshop is an English band formed in London, active from 1966 to 1968. The group was formed in 1966 by composer-guitarist and vocalist Clive Bayley, drummer Robert Hagger, and bassist Paul Rutledge. When The Syn broke up in 1967, Bailey invited Chris Squire to join Mabel Greer, replacing Rutledge, and Squire's Syn bandmate Peter Banks soon joined on second guitar. Early in 1968, Squire met Jon Anderson and invited him to join as lead vocalist. Later in 1968, Bill Bruford replaced Hagger, and Tony Kaye joined on keyboards. At this point, Bailey left and the band changed its name to Yes. The band reformed under its original name in 2014 with Bayley, Hagger, Kaye, and Hugo Barré (bass), along with Billy Sherwood as producer and occasional bassist. This formation has recorded new material as well as resurrecting songs that were played in the 60s.
