Chris, like our dear ol' Phil, defined a unique rock and roll bass style.

Coincidentally construction has just begun on a roundabout between us and our grocery store. Kind of a memorial, in a roundabout way.

He was only 67.

Don't make no difference to me.

Chris Squire along with other members of Yes was a master of his trade. I remember at 15 years old being blown away by the heavy bass riffs he was pumping out, a true Legend who contributed much in his short time here.... RIP :(

"Chris Squire honored with plaque at London Hotel"

"Late Yes bassist Chris Squire has been honoured with a plaque at London's Sanctum Hotel, as well as having a room named after him.
Hotel owner Mark Fuller, a great friend of Chris', took the step of placing a plaque to honour Squire outside the Soho hotel he owns,
as well as naming room 401 'The Fish Tank', the name Squire would afford any hotel room he stayed in around the world.
The plaque plays on 'The Late' Chris Squire, a tongue-in-cheek joke referring to the musician's legendary tardiness.
"

Here's a link to the whole article;
