Exclusive Interview With Yes Bass Player (And Valley Resident) Chris Squire
One of the most anticipated shows of the summer seasons happens tomorrow night when Yes takes the stage at the valley’s most intimate venue, The Celebrity Theatre. They’ll take the stage at 7:30 for a memorable evening of songs including Your Move, Roundabout, America, Leave It, and their #1 hit Owner of A Lonely Heart. To top off the evening, Yes will be performing one of their classic albums in its entirety.
A few weeks back I caught up with Chris and covered a lot of ground that included how he ended up with a home here in the valley, why the group is not in the rock and roll hall of fame, bass players that have influenced his own style….and that’s just the first half of our conversation. He’s quite a talker and whether you’re a hard core Yes fan or just a casual one, I think you’ll enjoy what he had to say. (did you know he has a home here in the valley?)
I’ll post part two tomorrow.
