Yes was formed in 1968 after Jon Anderson met self-taught Chris Squire at a London music-industry bar; the pair were soon joined by guitarist Peter Banks, keyboardist Tony Kaye, and drummer Bill Bruford. Yes released their self-titled debut in 1968. However, it wasn’t until Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman replaced Banks and Kaye, respectively, that the prog rock group really hit it big with 1971’s The Yes Album and 1972’s Fragile.

Chris Squire (67), co-founder and longtime bassist of iconic progressive rock group Yes, and the only member of the group to feature on every studio album, passed away just over a month after revealing that he was suffering from a rare form of leukemia.

I was able to see them in 1978 and one other time later.

My condolences to his family, friends, colleagues and fans.
