Tonight’s WBLM Mini-Concert
One year ago this week, we were saddened to hear news of the passing of one of the all-time greatest musicians, Chris Squire. After a battle with leukemia, he died on June 27, 2015 at the age of 67. Chris was a founding member of the band Yes and is the only member to appear on all of their albums throughout all the various line-up changes. He was truly a legendary bass player in the history of rock. In fact, it’s more appropriate to refer to him as a bass lead guitarist. Chris Squire brought so much more to music than just the bottom sound. He played licks and melodies like a lead guitar player. Chris Squire was a tremendous master of his instrument. It is very likely that he inspired many young bass players over the years to get themselves a Rickenbacker and attempt to learn his intricate parts.
Tonight at 6:20 it's live Yes, remembering Chris Squire on the WBLM Mini-Concert.
