One of my favorite rock musicians, longtime Yes bass player Chris Squire, died from leukemia over the weekend. Since I’ve featured a lot of his Yes highlights over the years, here he is performing two songs–“Hold Our Your Hand” and “You By My Side”–from his 1975 solo album, Fish Out of Water, on the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1975. RIP Chris.
