Posted on: October 2nd, 2008 Chris Squire Speaks
After Yes lead singer Jon Anderson made public his feelings on being temporarily replaced for Yes’s upcoming 40th anniversary tour, due to his illness, YES has remained silent, until now. Bassist Chris Squire is quoted as saying, “We’ve been together longer than most marriages. Jon will always be a member of Yes. I hope he has a full recovery and that he can come back.” Squire also went on to say that he hasn’t actually spoken to Anderson, but has sent him flowers and cards. What??? You dick. How about be a man and call, if you guys have been together for 40 years, don’t you think you owe him at least that?
“The Yes fan base in general has been very frustrated that Yes hasn’t been doing shows for four years,” Squire says. “Of course I wish him a full recovery, and I hope he’ll be well enough to come back at a later date. On the other hand, this might not happen. So we decided to look into, in my own words, getting an understudy for him to fill in.” Well the YES fanbase and RockHeap would like to actually see YES, not some bullshit mishmash and “understudy”. What is this Broadway or rock and roll? Pete was right, Rock is Dead.
