Elvis without Elvis is an Elvis impersonator; it aint the same thing.

Lead vocals is everything in pop music. Boston has a phony now too.
Oh boy

as a long time fan i can say that YES without Anderson is NOT YES! they tried it before on the Drama album & tour (both went nowhere). they should be waiting for Anderson to heal.
