Fish out of Water





English musician and bassist Chris Squire is the only original member of progressive rock group Yes to appear on every album, and remain a constant in the lineup throughout the band’s tenure. Since releasing their first record in 1969, Yes have continued to record and tour for over 35 years. Squire's bass playing is noted for being aggressive, dynamic, and melodic. Squire's main instrument is a Rickenbacker 4001, which he has owned and played since 1965; it was the fourth Rickenbacker 4001 ever imported into Britain from the United States. This instrument, with its warmth and distortion, is a significant part of Squire's unique sound. His first solo record was Fish Out of Water, originally released in 1975 and soon to be re-released in a special package spring 2007.
