Former Yes singer Jon Anderson has posted an online tribute to his former bandmate Chris Squire, who died on Saturday (June 27th) after a battle with a rare form of leukemia.

Anderson who cofounded Yes with Squire in 1968 writes on his official website, "Chris was a very special part of my life; we were musical brothers. He was an amazingly unique bass player - very poetic - and had a wonderful knowledge of harmony.

"We met at a certain time when music was very open, and I feel blessed to have created some wonderful, adventurous, music with him. Chris had such a great sense of humor… he always said he was Darth Vader to my Obiwan. I always thought of him as Christopher Robin to my Winnie the Pooh.

"We travelled a road less travelled and I'm so thankful that he climbed the musical mountains with me. Throughout everything, he was still my brother, and I'm so glad we were able to reconnect recently. I saw him in my meditation last night, and he was radiant. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones.

"Love and light…..Jon"
