YES is in town this weekend.
It’s always a special occasion when the pioneers of prog-rock come to town. The centerpiece of the concert will be the performance of the entire "Fly From Here" suite, six songs from the band’s 2011 album, said bass guitarist and backing vocalist Chris Squire in a phone interview. The membership of Yes has changed over the years, with Squire, 64, as the only member to appear on every album. "I’ve been the stable influence," Squire said. "I’ve been benefited by all the musicians [over the years]. It has been a great education." Trained in his British St. Andrew’s church choir as a young boy, Squire said he "learned how music was put together" from his choral experiences. He was 15 when the Beatles broke out,and still counts Paul MCartney as a major influence on his arranging skills — and, of course, the way he plays the bass. Procol Harum opens.
