Jimmy Page Hopes To Release XYZ Recordings With Chris Squire
Work was abandoned after they failed to secure a suitable singer, although demo material has circulated and some of the music later appeared on the reformed Yes' 1983 album 90125. Squire died last month, aged 67.

"I wanted to contact Chris and Alan. The music was really good - it's the first thing I did after we lost John Bonham. I had a studio at the time and they wanted to get together. I thought it was like laying down the gauntlet: 'I'm not curling up under a rock and hiding.'" Read more here.
