Chris Squire was born on this day, March 4th, in 1948. Happy Birthday, Chris!

Happy Birthday, Rick Wakeman!

Rick Wakeman, enigmatic and Arthurian keyboard player for Yes, was born on this day, May 18th, in 1949. Favorite massively overwrought Wakeman-era keyboard riff from a song by Yes: the climax to “Heart of The Sunrise.” Wakeman also appeared as Thor in the 1975 Ken Russell-directed Film, Lisztomania. Happy Birthday, Rick!
