Goodbye, Chris Squire

It is a sad day here. Last night Yes-founder and bassist, Chris Squire lost his short battle with the very rare acute erythroid leukemia. 

I had the privilege to shoot Yes in Vancouver when they were at the height of their popularity. It was an amazing show. Eerily, these photographs were taken on the same date he died, June 27.

 
 
 
 

CHRIS SQUIRE
3/4/48 - 6/27/15

Chris was actively playing with Yes until March 2015 when he was diagnosed. He put Yes together and is the only member to play on every recording the band has made. He will be missed.

I chose Lift Me Up because Chris Squire co-wrote it with Trevor Rabin, and it's a great song.
