A few days ago we’re reached by the sad news that Chris Squire had passed away. It’s hard to fathom. One of my very first progressive rock records I ever bought was ”Close to the edge”, if it wasn’t the very first. One thing is for sure and that’s that Yes introduced a whole new world of music to me that I didn’t know existed. Changed me. Changed the way I think about music. Changed how I write music. Changed my record collection. My preferences. Chris Squire certainly had a great part in that. And I’m just one Yes fan in a legion of millions. Thank you Chris from us in Opeth. Condolences to his family and bandmates.
