I was very saddened on Sunday to hear that Chris Squire of Yes had passed away at 67. It was only a little over a month ago he was diagnosed with leukemia. I worried that at his age his chances of survival might be slim, but I never would have guessed it would take only a month.
Other than Jeff Lynne, I can’t think of another musician that would bring me more grief. Not that I flat out cried, but it just really put things in perspective. I have a picture of Squire that I bought at some flea market years ago….college maybe? It’s in a matte frame. I am not sure where it’s at, but i know I still have it and will need to pull it out.
One of my favorite bands will never be the same, and quite frankly, I would prefer they not continue as a band. But then, Squire would likely want them to continue, That’s just the type of musician he was. He was Yes through and through.
