Chris Squire

So Chris Squire died today. I think he was one of the best bassists of all time. All of Yes musicians were quite talented.

RIP Chris. We will miss you.

(I am listening to "And you and I" for my own tribute.)

1. I heard that. He was the only member of Yes to play on all albums.

I think I'll break out my vinyl "Tales from Topographic Oceans" that I bought around 1973 & play it. R.I.P.

2. I'm going to listen to Fragile.

That album had enormous impact on my 16 year old musical self when it came out in 1971.

3. Chris was one of the greats.

He was my favorite bass player by far, and his harmony (and occasional lead) vocals were an essential element of the classic Yes sound.

I got to see Chris twice. He was a great performer with an engaging stage presence.

His death is a real loss to me. The music he made entertained and inspired me immensely, but, greedy bastard that I am, I wanted one more album.

5. Wow

 

RIP Mr. Squire.

Always thought that Yes and CSN&Y had the best vocal harmonies.

6. Chris and Jon Anderson were both lovers of great vocal arrangements

Heavily influenced by Simon and Garfunkel.

Chris always found that high harmony that worked so well w/ Jon's voice.

RIP Chris, you will be missed.
