Greetings...from a new member

Postby Squire*Fan725 » Mon Mar 26, 2001 5:31 pm

I've been a fan of Yes for a decade, and I
figured it was time to find more people who
share the same love of this most excellent
group, particularly Chris Squire (as my user name will show). Fish Out Of Water happens to be in my opinion, one ass-kickin' piece of work..Now if only I can get my hands on a
copy of Conspiracy...that would be sweet!

If there are others who are also Squire fans
(maybe even more than me),just give a shout right here, or e-mail me.

Hi fan, and welcome to YEStalk.

We're fortunate enough to have a great group of yesheads here, so you're in good company. If you need any help getting around, just let us know, but it's pretty easy to figure things out. Feel free to jump into any topics that you see, and if you get some new ideas, just start some new topics also.

See you around the board.

Squire*Fan725,
This link shows the price at 13.99, as opposed to 24.99 at CDNow
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/searc ... 38-7576839
I got it just by searching amazon's popular music for 'conspiracy'. You got no complaints by me setting Chris as No.1 , though I haven't gotten to really appreciate FooW. I'm pretty close to buying a turntable to re-aquaint myself with my record collection, then I'll be able to give FooW another chance.

Hi SquireFan*725 (from one new member to another! )
I always thought Fish out of Water was one of the best solo albums from any Yes member, I think he sang really well on it!I have the original vinyl album and the poster that came with it,though I have to say it has'nt graced my wall for some years ! I have always been baffled why he never made another solo album ...perhaps others know!

welcome squire fan.the first time i heard yes,i thought who the hell is playing that bass.id never heard angthing like that before.i belive it was the yes album a very long time ago. it was squires playing that turned me on to yes at first,it sounded so well BIG.i even had a ricky for a while but soon discovered it wasnt the bass that made that sound but squires very own fingers, you cant emulate that, thats just magic!<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

I have a friend who hates YES (as I find many, but not all, girls do). She came with me to the taping of Yes on Hard Rock Live - even she couldn't believe what the man can do with a bass. And, believe me, it's quite an endorsement when some one who really dosn't like them can be so impressed by his playing and showmanship. Yeah, you got the right man when it comes to bass playing. I think the only one who coes close is, probably, Tony Levin.

Welcome. Any fan of Chris Squire is a friend of mine. His skill remains unrivaled in the world today as far as I'm concerned. Frequencies so low at times, it feels as though my sternum is breaking! Wow, the only other person I ever heard that could do that was John Paul Jones ( another endorsement for "Zooma" ). Of course, honorable mention has got to go to John Entwhistle.<font color=red></font id=red><img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Okay yessong, Tony Levin deserves honorable mention too. Yep, mere oversight on my part!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><font color=purple></font id=purple>

Welcome, Squirefan. I know you will love this forum! A great bunch of well-informed Yesheads. I agree with you that Chris is THE best bassist ever. I remember my first Yes concert in 1973. I was blown away with Chris's playing. Not only is he a very talented musician, but he deserves a lot of credit as being the longest standing member of Yes, and for holding the band together through thick and thin! Happy posting...<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

I didn't know a poster came with the LP... what's it a picture of?
Bruford has said in an interview that Squire takes forever to generate music, he's not very productive and that he could have put out more albums if he'd been able to drag himself out of bed. Apparently he had the material in the can for a second album, but he ended up using some songs for OYE, and the rest in the Chemistry project. I'd guess now he is channeling all his writing for Yes at this point.

Sorry about that. What I meant to say is that Chris will be working on another orchestral album,a follow-up to FOOW,but he
said that it would have to be done much like
the first one...We'll most likely be hearing
about it before 2005. I hope he does it, and
then takes it on the road..I can see it now...THE FISH OUT OF WATER TOUR, where BOTH
albums can be covered,WITH an orchestra! That would be SWEET! I'd finally get to hear
Hold Out Your Hand live,since I was only 5
when Yes did their Solos Tour,and they ended
up dropping the solo tunes before they even
got to New Jersey!

<font face='Tempus Sans ITC'> <font size=4>My friends always wonder why it's so inportant we get seats on the right side of the venue -- at first . . .

Three things to remember about Chris: 1) There's great bass playing involved, 2) Chris will be tardy, 3) Good things are worth waiting for. </font id='Tempus Sans ITC'></font id=size4>)<img src=icon_smokin.gif border=0 align=middle>

I agree, Squire is the best. No other bass player has the skill or technique as Chris.
Rock n` Roll hall of fame stuff I beleive
Please keep playing Chris

The poster that came with FOOW is the same as the mosaic type fish picture on the back of the album cover.

Hell yeah, yourmove! I'd love to have it, as

address, and we'll discuss this rather cool

I've sent you an e-mail, jooles, but it might be under the name jonny-h. My online access is a Dreamcast, and I can only send
e-mail from his account, yet I can get all the e-mail I want at my excite inbox.
Go figure, right? IMO, the Dreamcast is far
too limited. There's certain things I can't do on here, but it can be done on a computer.

At least I can post messages, AND send e-mail...

The poster came today, and it's cooler than I imagined!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> It's already hung up, and now the bedroom looks a whole lot better...

Thanx again, jooles, for yet another addition to my ever-growing Yes collection.
