Chris Squire

Once your childhood heroes begin to leave you ( Louis Johnson ) or fall into ill health ( Joni Mitchell ), it truly gives you a perspective of time.

It seems like it was only yesterday when I was a teenager playing air guitar in my bedroom to Going For The One, Silent Wings of Freedom and Hold Out Your Hand.

I can't think of another rock bassist as cool as Chris Squire. He had the stature ( 6' 4'' ), the attitude, the stance and the cheshire smile that let you know that he knew how cool it was to be in this band, playing this music. The Beatles of progressive rock,YES.

Long Live !
