I saw them in their heyday on the Fragile and Close To The Edge tours. He and the whole band at that time were incredible.
Go easy bro...
OH @#$%&! This one hurts a lot. An amazing talent and a really funny and friendly man. I've got a few stories, perhaps later. RIP Chris.
Here is a great video of Chris telling a story about Jimi Hendrix:
Just heard about this from a mate. Very sad news. Chris was an amazing bass player. Let the Lord shine his light for you.
Chris wasn't just a fantastic bass player he was a truly amazing singer too. His harmony vocals sometimes get lost in the powerhouse that was Jon Anderson but anybody who truly studies Yes music can't underestimate his contributions as a B/G vocalist.
I was lucky enough to work with some of the Going For The One multi tracks and remember isolating his vocal track and just being drop jawed amazed. I used to pull up a mix of that tune with his vocal up front and Anderson's down in the mix and I swear the song became something else completely... better! I love the tune and still have a hard time listening to the final released mix with Chris so buried, knowing what is lying just below the surface.
More Squire stories later.....
