YES: addio a CHRIS SQUIRE

Chris Squire, il leggendario bassista e co-fondatore degli YES, ci ha lasciati oggi, vinto dalla leucemia.

Squire, 67 anni di età, era considerato come uno dei giganti della musica progressive rock, e non solo, oltre che uno degli artisti più influenti della scena. Questo l'annuncio dei compagni di band sul loro profilo Facebook:

It’s with the heaviest of hearts and unbearable sadness that we must inform you of the passing of our dear friend and Yes co-founder, Chris Squire. Chris peacefully passed away last night in Phoenix Arizona, in the arms of his loving wife Scotty.
For the entirety of Yes’ existence, Chris was the band’s linchpin and, in so many ways, the glue that held it together over all these years. Because of his phenomenal bass-playing prowess, Chris influenced countless bassists around the world, including many of today’s well-known artists. Chris was also a fantastic songwriter, having written and co-written much of Yes’ most endearing music, as well as his solo album, Fish Out of Water.
Outside of Yes, Chris was a loving h usband to Scotty and father to Carmen, Chandrika, Camille, Cameron, and Xilan. With his gentle, easy-going nature, Chris was a great friend of many … including each of us. But he wasn’t merely our friend: he was also part of our family and we shall forever love and miss him.
