Episode 185 – Chris Squire Tributes

Fish Out Of Water, Chris Squire

Many people have made tributes to the legacy of the legend, Chris Squire. Here are some of the most important and most affecting.


Episode delayed

To add to my sense of devastation at the passing of our lead bass hero, Chris Squire, I am not able to release episode 185 of the Yes Music Podcast on time.

In my day job, I do the exact opposite of Yes music and the YMP. I won’t go into it here in detail. This has unfortunately meant that I simply haven’t had time to record the episode which is all ready to go.

Chris Squire also lived his life at 100 miles an hour but for significantly better reasons than what I’ve been up to lately.

I’ll be back next week, hopefully before Friday.
