That totally blows.
Thanks for all the great music, Mr. Squire.
May your music live forever.
On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, we will remember you

The ability to play/make music is a gift that not everyone gets. Those of us who have it should use it.

Yes, one of my favourites as well-an awesome player, and a very good singer/writer as well...managing intricate bass-lines along with with the harmonies of Yes. When I was younger I played bass in bands more than I did guitar and Chris was a big influence. I saw Yes live at least five times (never got on with their later stuff, post-Owner of a Lonely Heart mat'l. He was the reason I purchased a brand new '73 Rickenbacker 4001 fresh out of high school.Then an older '68 a few years later. RIP Chris "the Fish" Squire.

Legend R.I.P Chris. Yes were a major part of my younger years. Just looking thru those from the music biz lost in 2015. Sooo many and all Mid to late 50s / early 60s mostly to cancer.
