Chris Squire, Legendary Yes Bassist, Dies From Leukemia at 67

Squire has long been known as “The Keeper of the Flame”; he’s the only founding member of Yes to remain with every incarnation of the band. His fluid bass playing was their calling card, along with Jon Anderson’s etherial vocals, the multi-chaptered epic songs and Roger Dean’s fantasy/sci-fi visuals. But while the band dropped and came back to lengthy jams, Dean’s art and even Anderson’s vocals over the years, Squire’s presence has been the one consistency over Yes’s four decades-plus career.

My sympathies. Yes was my favorite band until their shoddy treatment of Jon Anderson and Chris Squire was outstanding. It will be interesting to see if they attempt to continue what is now and has been merely a franchise. R.I.P.
