Yes Bassist Chris Squire Passes Away Yes bassist and backing vocalist Chris Squire has passed away, after a bout with acute erythroid leukemia, a form of acute myeloid leukemia. Just last month Squire's diagnosis was announced by the band, who also said he would be undergoing treatment for the next few months. His passing was announced Sunday morning.
Squire was a founding member of the prog rock band, as well as the only original member still in the current lineup, and the only one to appear in every version of Yes. The upcoming summer tour had already been announced as the first Yes tour ever without Squire.
Yes was co-founded with singer Jon Anderson and was a pioneer of the British Prog Rock scene of the '70s. It went through a number of lineup changes over the decades, and earned a #1 hit in early 1984 with "Owner Of A Lonely Heart."
A statement on the official Yes Facebook page reads, "Itís with the heaviest of hearts and unbearable sadness that we must inform you of the passing of our dear friend and Yes co-founder, Chris Squire. Chris peacefully passed away last night in Phoenix Arizona. We will have more information for you soon."
Squire was 67 years old at the time of his passing.
