As we continue to mourn the loss of Yes bassist Chris Squire, we can also take delight in one of his latter-day performances with the band he founded in the late 1960s.
When the legendary progressive rock group played in Mesa, Arizona on Aug. 12, 2014, Squire, — who died June 27, 2015 of acute erythroid leukemia — was the only founding member still part of the band as it played two of its best-loved albums, Close to the Edge and Fragile, in their entirety in one night. That show, performed at the Mesa Arts Center, is now available on Blu-ray as Like It Is — Live at the Mesa Arts Center.
Here’s a bit of what it looked like. Enjoy “South Side of the Sky”:
