“The sound, the approach, the songs, the basslines – talk about classic. I don’t know if everybody knows this, but there’s two basses on Roundabout; it’s double-tracked. And it sounds so weird and nasty. The way that Bill Bruford’s drums interact with Chris Squire’s bass is one of those really special things in music history.
“Then, of course, there’s the bass in Heart Of The Sunrise. The best part is the intro, that wonderful motif – such cool playing. When he plays it live, he does all kinds of things with it, changing it around. Oh, and Long Distance Runaround – we all know how great that is. And The Fish – I don’t know how to say the other part of the title – is that classic Chris Squire bass solo. Everything on the record is a memorable line.
“When it comes to Yes albums, Close To The Edge is a close second – there's lots of fantastic stuff on there – but Fragile is amazing from start to finish. You can’t knock anything about it.”
