Hope it's not a dupe. He was one of the founding members and bassist of Yes. Dead at 67.

I love Yes music.

Oh my.

Same here. Yes was all great musicians.

Sad day, ununfortunately if you grew up on that music this will be more frequent.
Luckily I saw YES with Wakeman in 1977. Fantastic.

Sucks...he was very talented.

Joe Cocker gone as well?

Yes is no longer.  



So glad I got to see them twice.

I grew up listening to their albums(24 years old)

Dad would pop one into his 1985 BMW 635 and we'd go find some fun roads.

Love their song referencing chess, always reminded me of the old man.

Was never really a huge fan of Yes but being a musician myself I always respected the talent and musicianship involved in that band. RIP Chris.

Sad news to hear.  I remember the first time I heard YES.  I was in Driver's Ed and the instructor had a rock station playing when Roundabout came on.  I was knocked back by the different sound that came out of the speakers.  The bass line was plucked note by note and was up front in the song, not a series of chords in the background.

Chris's playing style was unique at the time and gave YES an entirely different sound from all of rock being played a the time.  I grew into adulthood listening to them and will still pull out one of their LPs and play it to relive old memories.  Good music to accompany good times, but now there can no longer be any new music from them.

RIP Chris.

Yes. (No pun intended.) Died last year, I believe.

Amen


"Roundabout" literally changed the world of electric bass playing in rock type music - to this day it makes my head spin, in a pleasant way, to listen to that song loud on good floor speakers.  RIP Chris; gone way too early.

Glad to see the love. Thankfully I've seen them many times over the years, including the original line up.




Link Posted: 6/28/2015 3:37:05 PM EDT
Saw that this afternoon on the Yes FB page. Very sad.



Like a lot of people my age (47) I was introduced to Yes by their 1983 album, 90125. From that I started exploring their back catalog. Listened to them a lot through the 80s and early 90s, and started listening to them again a few years ago.




RIP, Chris.

I always enjoyed their music. Especially when I was young and smoked pot.

Rest in peace Chris, your music lives on.

I'll also go with Heart Of The Sunrise.

The only position that was constant throughout their history was bass. He was huge. Sad loss.
Link Posted: 6/28/2015 5:04:33 PM EDT
This sucks! I heard he was battling some type of Lymphoma. He was one of my favorite bassists. I met him once in Monterey CA when he was playing with the Chris Squire Experiment.

A great loss.

Sad to hear. YES created and played some of the most complexly arranged yet awesome sounding music. Carefully listen to "love will find a way" it's absolutely incredible.
Link Posted: 6/28/2015 7:45:07 PM EDT
Saw them live in concert in Germany in 1977. Loved their music.

RIP.

I studied good style for a little bit while trying to get my bass voice. The growly bass tone he got was to die for. I've been bummed out today for sure.

Much love for Yes!

At age 16 I almost drove the four hours to Saint Louis to see them in 1976. My folks said have a good concert but don't expect to get into the house, we're changing the locks.

It seemed that every September I'd start my high school out with a Yes concert and watched the "Going for the One", "Tormato", and "Drama" in September in Chicago, and "Big Generator" in San Diego tours . Their music was changing from the more classic "Close to the Edge", "Topograpic Oceans" and "Fragile" which was more my taste of music. "Big Generator" was the first concert I took my new wife to and paid some bucks to a ticket service for 10th row or so center seats ... money well invested as that got her hooked.

They're due here in September with Toto for one night. I've been kicking around going to a prog-rock cruise and they're the headliner for the Miami to Key West cruise this fall. Too late ... it's hard to hold on to the music of 40 and 50 years ago.

An amazing artist who with Steve Howe brought many a house down.

I was 16 in 1980. They use to play a Yes  movie or concert at the midnight movies at the local theatre in St. Louis. Very visual. They must have been no longer touring at that time.

I'm 45. I agree. 90125 is one of my "desert island" albums. I'm a Trevor Rabin Yes fan.
