Grammy Award winning pioneers of progressive rock, YES have achieved worldwide success with a history spanning 47 years and 21 studio albums. The band is known for its expansive songs, mystical lyrics, elaborate album art and live stage sets.
Earlier this year YES tragically lost founding member, bassist Chris Squire. Chris had a career spanning over four decades and has influenced as well as played with some of the most notable musicians in rock and pop history. “It’s hard to imagine the future without Chris! He will always be in our thoughts and mind. Chris was a one-off, larger than life human being, who brought a serious amount to everything he was part of,” said YES guitarist, Steve Howe
“It’s been harder than I can say to put thoughts to words—to express the sense of loss I feel upon the passing of my cherished friend and band mate, Chris Squire. I am without one of the most important, most loved people in my life. Chris was always a gentle but strong leader; a steadfast rock of my existence,” added YES drummer, Alan White.
YES MOVING FORWARD & STRONGER THAN EVER
There is no better way to honor the memory of Chris than moving forward and continuing the legacy of the band he co-founded back in 1968. YES have just finished a successful tour in North America with rock legends TOTO, and Billy Sherwood doing an amazing job taking over for Chris. YES are now planning a massive 25 date
