Always a pleasure to tune in, Kevin!
Trevor Horn will certainly deserve a full dedicated show 🙂
I think “High” is from the 1979 “Paris sessions”, so it is post-Tormato (although it’s part of its expanded version). Chris Squire here seems to use an 8-string bass. The bass on “Holding On” is played by Tony Levin. I read on an interview that he did his best to impersonate Squire’s style on “Union” using his trademark “funk-fingers”

Thanks for the information, Miguel! Levin really is the only choice for replacing Squire (that I’ve heard so far…) unless you ever want to step in of course!
