Did it "put the band in a good light" when they left Steve Howe behind and got Trevor Rabin?

No, its the same thing more or less, but I dont hear you screaming about that.

Look, until you've worked in the field, perhaps you dont realize it, but, its a BUSINESS, and people come and people go. When a VERY successful band splits up, theres usually a LOT of involved issues on all sides.

If you're one of those people that totally defines a band by the singer, then, you're not going to be able to get past those sorts of issues, and see the bigger picture.

Perhaps Anderson is difficult to work with - who knows ? Still Anderson comes down with a major health issue, and they replace him with a tribute singer doesn't put the band in a good light. Just saying.
