17Rick has three sons from his first marriage (to Roz): Oliver Wakeman, Adam Wakeman, and Benjamin, and a stepdaughter, Amanda.


Quotes

#Quote
1Bohemian Rhapsody broke every single rule. It broke the rules in radio too because it became the most played radio track and yet it didn't fit into any of the genre that it should have done.
2[on Freddie Mercury] I only got to meet Freddie a few times out in Montreux and got on great with him, an absolute character.
3[on progressive rock] I've always believed that these days there is hardly a band or musician anywhere who haven't used some element of prog in their music. It's all about freedom of expression, which in my case is often in seven different time signatures!
4[speaking about Jon Anderson]: Jon is the only person I know who cares about the planet but lives on another one.
5I'm always writing or playing because that is my life.
6I joined Yes in July 1971. I had heard Yes live, as The Strawbs had supported them at a gig in Hull. I thought they were amazing - incredibly different.
7[speaking about his keyboard playing] I avoid preset sounds wherever possible, and all the sounds I use I have edited.
8[speaking on The Weakest Link (2000), 2005] It's got a bit sad, really. I've stopped drinking, I don't smoke anymore, I've stopped getting married and I play golf and eat shepherd's pie.
