    Me too. I knew with Chris Squire gone, there wouldn't be a true YES left behind. Squire was such a huge presence in the band, physically, creatively, and emotionally. There's no replacing him! Plus, I was looking forward to some type of (re)union with the band, when they were inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame. And then Squire passed before that could happen. So, I was sad for that, and sad that I wouldn't see YES perform together again, in what would probably be the last time, in a configuration that resembled YES of old. Just a shame he's gone! R.I.P. Fish.

    What a monster bass player!

    There are so many more, but I really enjoyed seeing Alvin Lee in concert.

    The recent passing of Chris Cornell (Audioslave, Soundgarden, solo artist) really hit hard. I had been listening to him throughout most of his career and enjoyed his solo work immensely. His passing was way too soon.

    When Mark Knopfler passes I will be totally devastated...

    Lou Reed. If you've never listened to Berlin, you should.

    I completely get that. For me it was a tossup between him and Greg Lake. I really liked Lake's work with King Crimson and later with ELP.
    Lake said something once about the two of them: “I used to live with Chris Squire, in a flat in London,” Lake says. “People used to think that Yes and ELP were always at each other’s throats. But it’s not true. We sort of had a friendly rivalry. They used to call us ‘Henderson, Snake and Charmer,’ and we used to call them ‘Maybe.' … I’m very close to Chris, and I’ve known him all my life.”

    I feel for you too. ELP was one of my early band memories; a band that my brother played for me. It was Lucky Man. Wow. What a great song. And more ELP actually lead to a love of classical music, which has lasted to this day.

    Also, Greg Lake and John Wetton both gone. Both within a few weeks of each other. Two big hits there. Sux.

    Oh yea, I love that Greg Lake, Chris Squire story. Funny and interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    John Lennon and there is no second place.

    The Beatles were a huge influence on me. Lennon was killed when I was in college, living on campus and deeply involved in the typical things young college men would have been at the time.

    Back then I had the time and the passion to let this bother me, and it did.

    Absolutely. Both were a gargantuan piece of my musical puzzle. And Johnny Cash got the acclaim and respect from the hoi polloi that I feel Waylon never did. He was so much more than just the guy who sang the theme to The Dukes of Hazzard.
