Just over a year ago, the music world lost one of its legends, particularly so in the world of Prog.  Yes might mean as much to Prog as The Beatles mean to Pop music.  It was no wonder music luminaries from all genres offered their condolences and praise to the Iconic bassist.  We thought a fitting tribute would be to showcases some of Chris Squire’s incredible work with Yes.  These are by no means his only great work, just some that feature him more and show what influence he had on the music.

 

Long Distance Runaround – Brilliant bass work complimented by Steve Howe’s lead guitar line.

 

Going For The One – The killer opening track from one of the band’s underrated classic albums. 

 

Heart of the Sunrise – One of the most important songs in Prog rock.

 

Tempus Fugit – One of the best tracks from Drama, the period without many of the core members.

 

Roundabout – Arguably one of the most recognized bass lines in rock history.
