I would have to agree with Alan White’s comment about knowing Chris longer than he has known his wife.
I have been listening to yes music since 1969 I know I was ten years old at that time so it is a huge void in my life and I’m just a fan….

They could never say enough about Chris to really ever say just how extraordinary he really was!
Enjoy your Holiday…..


Thanks for the comment Paul. I’m not sure when of at all We will come to terms with Chris’ passing as you say.

Great episode as usual. The only thing to point out is that the cover photo of Chris is from 1977. He first started wearing them earrings on the Going For The One tour along with the striped suit and the infamous 3-necked bass. Keep up the good work and prog on!

Thanks John. That’s very interesting information about Chris. 1977 was clearly a vintage year in many ways!

Hello Kevin,
I purchase PROG magazine here in the states at the book shops, t so there is a delay in issue arrivals!
I have seen Chris Squire and YES play 62 times since the first RELAYER tour, December, 1974. I don’t recall in any of those shows ( and DO remember all of them ! ) if Chris had a bad night!
The tour highlights featuring Chris:
The YES medley 1979, featuring Chris’ “THE FISH,” as an anchor to link several YES songs;
Chris’ bass lines for “Gates of Derium,” “Yours is no disgrace,” Into the Lens, “Silent Wings of freedom,” white-Fish, ” “Real Love,” ” Parallels.”
Enjoy the rest of your holiday!

Thanks so much Charlie. You are a connoisseur of Yes! Great to know you are listening and thanks for the comment!
