LINK: ‘I’m enjoying music as much as I ever have’: Yes’ Chris Squire isn’t close to slowing down

Chris Squire’s old bandmate in Yes, drummer Bill Bruford, retired from music in 2009. Don’t look for the tireless bassist to go gently into that good night any time soon.
Bruford, who left Yes in 1972 to join fellow prog-rock pioneers King Crimson, was just 60 years old when he called it quits. Meanwhile, his 64-year-old former rhythm-section partner remains the only member of Yes to appear on each of its more than two dozen albums.
Squire led the group through 2011′s Fly From Here, then issued a collaboration this year with former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett.
In between, Yes has continued a rigorous touring schedule.
Squire, to put a fine point on it, isn’t about to slow down. In fact, during a talk with George Varga of UT-San Diego, Squire was bursting with plans as Yes nears its 45th anniversary.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
