Det är med stor sorg vi meddelar att YES basist och grundare CHRIS SQUIRE har avlidit.

I slutet av maj meddelade bandet att CHRIS SQUIRE, basist och grundare i YES, tvingats lämna bandets pågående turné efter att ha fått diagnosen av en ovanlig form av leukemi. Beskedet kom idag att basisten har somnat in, 67 år gammal.


Senaste studioalbumet med YES kom 2014 och bar titeln “Heaven & Earth”.

Det officiella uttalandet av YES lyder:
“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 husband 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.”
