(hennemusic) Yes drummer Alan White confirms the progressive rock icons will continue following last month's passing of founder and bassist Chris Squire. Squire died June 27 at the age of 67 from Acute Erythroid Leukemia (AEL), an uncommon form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

Now, White says the band will move forward at Squire's request. "It's certainly going to be hard without him, but he called me and asked me to keep everything going regardless of what happens," White tells Billboard.

"So absolutely we're moving ahead. I'm gonna do it for him. The fans are behind the band and want the band to keep moving forward here. It doesn't seem like anybody's kind of given up on the band, which is really encouraging and it'll help us move things forward.

"Things can't just stop, you know? We've got to maintain the Yes name and ... meet the high standards of musicianship Chris created." Read more here.
