Chris Squire of Yes Almost Produced Classic Rush Album

(Prog) Yes bassist Chris Squire has discussed how close he came to becoming a producer for Rush. He was invited to meet Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart with a view to working on 1984′s Grace Under Pressure.

But he was surprised to meet collaborator Trevor Horn when he went to talks with the Canadian three-piece. In a Q&A on the Yes website, Squire says: "I was a possible candidate to produce a Rush album. When I showed up there, Trevor was sitting next to me.

"I said, 'What are you doing here?' He said, 'I've been asked to come and meet the band because I might be producing them.' I said, 'So have I!'" more on this story
