Sherwood: Chris Squire said I was the only the guy for the Yes job
In a strange twist of fate, late Yes bassist Chris Squire's last ever recording is on his replacement's brand new solo album.
Chris Squire is among the many guests on Billy Sherwood new album Citizen, his contribution to its title track having been laid down at a Holiday Inn just before the legendary bassist fell ill.
“Sadly, it was Chris’ last ever recording,” Billy Sherwood relates. “I went to Arizona, near to where he lived, and we hung out for a weekend. Getting home, I called to thank him – that’s when he told me his news. The way it went downhill from there shocked everybody, it was so fast.”
A mere six weeks later, Squire was gone, with Sherwood having agreed to step into the gap for a period of indeterminate time.
