  • RIP Chris Squire

    Passed away aged 67 RIP

    Well, that's the definitive end of Yes.

    RIP. Even as a wonderful bassist it's his vocal harmonies that really tugged my heartstrings, oddly.

      Yep he had a really unique plectrum technique and a huge tone from his Rickenbacker. A giant of rock bass I would say, very sad news indeed.

        RIP Mr Squire. Love that big muscular bass sound on the pre & early Yes stuff. Sweet dreams big fella.
        A couple of my favourites.

        That keeps you from being a part of it all
        Because you've got to be one with the one and all
        You've just got to be close to it all

              His bass tone was once described as sounding like throwing a bucket of gravel at a wall. A higher compliment I've yet to hear.

                Sad news indeed. I still have all the early Yes stuff, love that bass sound. Even those who aren't a fan of the longer epics and/or Jon Anderson's voice could still find something to like in those older records.

                  Nice. Heard of the band but not heard this.

                  His bass playing was one of the reasons I liked those early Yes records.
