About Jon Anderson
Born in North West England 1944, John Anderson had no desire to become a singer. He instead tried to pursue a career at his home football club, Accrington Stanley, but he was turned down due to being too small. Before that, he was working on farms and as a milkman to support his family. In 1970, Anderson dropped the 'h' from his first name.
It wasn't until his brother took up singing and joined the band, the Warriors. After a backing vocalist left the group, Anderson filled in the position and there found his passion for music. Thus beginning his career.
