Maybe the best ever at his instrument.  And, in a band constantly in flux, the only guy to appear on every Yes album.

Ok Chris squire was good but he was not the best ever at their instrument. I could name 20 bass players who were better than him.

You're a fvcking idiot if you think you can name 5 bass players better than that dood. YES isn't really my type of music, but that guy was more solid than most everyone.
